HIGHLANDS COUNTY, Fla. — Election Results: 2020 general election results for Highlands County, Florida, can be found here after the polls close in Highlands County at 7 p.m. ET on Nov. 3, 2020.
This page will display results for elections of interest to Highlands County, including the Highlands County Commission races.
Florida statutes allow mail-in ballots to be opened and processed as early as 22 days before the election, although the results are not released until after the polls close. Thus, the first results displayed on election night are partial mail ballot results. So, don't be surprised if you see those pop up early in the night. The remaining ballots turned in on Election Day will be counted and added to the result totals throughout the night. That's when you'll see the "precincts" reporting data begin to change.
