Election results are published as they come in on elections night on the election website. Recounted results are published as they come in the day after an election and the next 4-5 days. Statistics Denmark also has a control function regarding the recounted results. Typically there will be a preliminary recounted result ready for the entire country in the evening the day after an election.
