Less than two days after the last poll closed, some gubernatorial, Senate and House races remain too close to call.

Here’s how some of the main undecided races break down:

  • ARIZONA — Republican Rep. Martha McSally leads by 1.0 percentage point over Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema in the Senate race. Republicans have filed suit to challenge the way some counties count mail-in ballots as election officials began tabulating more than 600,000 outstanding votes.
  • FLORIDA — Gov. Rick Scott, a Republican and Sen. Bill Nelson, a Democrat, appear headed to a statewide recount in their battle for U.S,. Senate. Scott leads Nelson by a margin of 0.22 points, below the threshold for an automatic manual recount, more than one-fourth of a percentage point,  the Orlando Sentinel reported. In the governor’s race, Democrat Andrew Gillum has pulled to about 39,000 behind Republican Ron DeSantis, a margin of 0.47 points, which also is below the threshold for an automatic manual recount, according to the Sentinel.
  • GEORGIA — Republican Brian Kemp has 50.3 percent of the votes in his race with Democrat Stacey Abrams for governor. NBC News says the race is still too close to call. If final vote tallies deny Kemp a majority, the race will go to a runoff.
  • UTAH — Democrat Ben McAdams leads GOP Rep. Mia Love by nearly 3 points in the House race. However, it may take up to two weeks to count late-arriving ballots, according to The Salt Lake Tribune.

    In addition, there are at least 10 other House races still in question throughout the nation, according to fivethirtyeight.
