Are fingers and toes being given out in lieu of "I voted" stickers or something?

While no one should *have* to, it'd probably be to the benefit of any Dem-leaning precincts to have it done by then.  Every minute past 11:59 on election day is an opportunity for GOP lawyers to arbitrarily decide that any subsequent counting there is invalid, regardless of the votes being submitted on or before election day, and regardless of whatever precedent or laws exist for the counting process.  I mean, given the lost-cause lawsuits they've been pumping out, they'll probably still sue for some nonsense, but having the count complete by midnight just takes away one more avenue of attack for them.

I know my local area has already started the tallying process.  Was a big enough deal to make regional front page news.

You're right. I read it as all of Tennessee's votes being counted.

My family comes from Tennessee, so I feel my home state has earned the stereotype just for electing Marsha Blackburn.

Well I mean there's a difference between willfully ignorant spiteful anti-intellectual racist POS and simply not being smart. One of those is a choice, unrelated to IQ.

Nashville is fairly sane by today's debased standards.

The ballots are safely stored in these locked USA! USA!* trash cans and will be promptly thrown out at 7am on election day.

Note: The trash cans and the American flag stickers are from China (Chyna, Jyna)
