Election workers in Arizona and Nevada began the third day of counting votes on Nov. 10 to ascertain the outcomes of two U.S. Senate races, as Georgia prepared for a runoff election that could determine which party controls the chamber next year.

Republicans, in the meantime, continued to gain ground toward a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives, with just eight seats left to claim control of the chamber.

The answer regarding who controls what chamber could take days or even weeks to determine if recounts take place.

In Nevada, Republican candidate Adam Laxalt held a 1.4 percentage point vote lead over incumbent Sen. Catherine Masto (D-Nev.) on the morning of Nov. 10 with an estimated 90 percent of the votes in. Regardless of the final margin, Nevada law allows the losing candidate to request a recount.

“Of the 84,000 votes left to count in Clark County, Cortez Masto could win 63% of them and she would still lose,” Laxalt wrote on Twitter on Nov. 9.

On the morning of Nov. 10, he wrote: “Last night went exactly as we anticipated. We added 3K from the rurals and more are coming. She added some Clark County mail. We expect the remaining mail universe to fall well below the percentage she needs to catch us. No status change.”

Masto’s campaign didn’t respond to a request for comment.

In Arizona, incumbent Sen. Mark Kelly (D-Ariz.) led Republican challenger Blake Masters by 5 percentage points on the morning of Nov. 10, with an estimated 78 percent of the votes in. Arizona law calls for an automatic recount when the margin between two candidates is less than half of a percentage point.

More than 400,000 votes remained to be counted as of the afternoon of Nov. 10 in Maricopa County, Arizona’s most populous county, Bill Gates, chairman of Maricopa County’s Board of Supervisors, told CNN.
