There are many baffling aspects to me in US elections, but on top of the list must be that you could somehow argue not to count all votes submitted, followed by that it's the press that 'calls' the results using a narrative suggesting that results can be instantaneous, instead of waiting for the finished local counts as they come in (even if not formally logged count totals, which usually comes a week later or so).
