The count for the first round of voting was completed at approximately 8:30 p.m. ET on Friday, December 2, 2022. A number of candidates secured a majority of votes in their race and will be sworn in on December 12, 2022 — you can find the full list of results here. Because no candidate received a majority of votes for the office of President, or for the third Vice President position, runoff elections will be held for both those positions.
