If he's getting crushed on election night, he'll be screaming that the election should go on as long as it takes.

South Carolina is refusing the orders of their redhat masters?

Maybe 538 wasn't crazy to have the state go blue in some of their calculations.

Fingers crossed.

Ugh. Crap.

I just hope that our men and women serving in other countries have had it with Trumplethinskin.

The voting does end on November 3, but all votes need to be counted, motherfarker!

That's what we need, a multistate pushback announcing how elections actually work, to deflate Trump's argument which recently has wound up in a Supreme Court opinion.

Diebold has played such a central role in American decline that every other democracy should ban machine voting. Paper ballots and scrutineers from now to eternity. (Also, that would include humans in the democratic process when AI takes the reins of economics and urban planning).
 
2020-10-30 5:45:09 PM  
Boy Trumpers and other people with no humanity are sure making up a lot of bs rules that don't actually exist to try and fark up the election.

Gee I wonder why that is...

Are OUR BRAVE TROOOOOOPS actually allowed to vote against the COMMANDER IN CHIEF???

/Seriously, I want to know what kind of voter intimidation occurs among our absentee servicepeople.
 
2020-10-30 5:46:28 PM  
We need the extra time to make sure his supporters didn't vote twice, like he told them to do.

If these a-holes only put as much energy into stopping COVID as they are in trying to stop people from voting, we'd be much safer.  .... and they would be further ahead in the polls.

I swear, it must be their plan to lose and let Dems clean up the farking mess they've left all around the country.

So you wish to give early voters a disproportionate voice in the process? Man, you really DON'T wish to be president, do you?
 
2020-10-30 5:49:36 PM  
Ballot tabulation has pretty much always gone on well beyond Election Day.  A race is typically called just based on media returns, the whole certification process takes like a week plus.

They are going to have push back anyway, since there are all of the down ticket races and other items that need to be tallied up. I'm betting there will be some close state races that will force not only full counts but even recounts in many key states.

The need for instant gratification is the hallmark of an infantile mind.  You'll get the results when the votes have been properly counted, you douche.

Nate Silver tweeted "Gonna keep repeating this point, because it has a variety of implications for vote counting, what happens if some ballots come in after the deadline, etc.: There is lots of evidence that Democrats sent their ballots in sooner than Republicans. In Florida, for example, mail ballots received by the morning of Oct. 14 were +21 D by party registration. But ballots received in the past 48 hours were just +6 D. "

Sounds like many of the ballots coming in late might be Republican. If the GOP wants to suppress their own party I say Fark em.

Some sanity from states i did not expect it from. My day gets a bit better.

If 34 Trump supporters' votes were the only ones counted, he'd demand the elections end.

Many PA counties aren't even going to START counting mail in ballots til Wednesday. Not like it's a key state or anything so let's just go with whatever media outlet calls it first.

Jeb Bush, Florida ballots anyone?

Trump just stuffed his latest puppet into the SCOTUS to gain a majority.  He'll just have them shut down the ballot counting for him.

They have till December 8 to certify.

Its a numbers game to them.

When fewer people vote, the GOP almost always wins.

When more people vote, the Democrats almost always win.

This is normally true, which is why they are all about suppressing as many votes as then can, even if they votes were for them, and have been for decades, but this time around with wild record early voting numbers, and Democrats almost universally voting earlier, their normal plays may not work the way they want.

Flappyhead: SCOTUS will disagree.


You joke, but that was what was so distressing about Bush v Gore. The Constitution gives states the power over their elections and SCOTUS said No to what the Florida Supreme Court said. It said that the recounts violated their equal protection  rights. This is the whopper at the center of Bush v Gore. The RECOUNT violated equal protection but the initial count didn't. Heaven help us all.

In Ohio it is a paper ballot and when you are finished marking it you plug it into the machine which counts the votes in that precinct. Then at the end of the day you run multiple checks that are signed off by a Republican rep And. Democrat rep. The tally is signed and then the ballots plus the tallies go into a locked bag and driven to a drop off location with both the D and R reps in the same car.

If the count of ballots filled out plus the errors do not match the total distributed using a bar code scanner on the registration device which counts the total # of voters you have to start all over again and recount until you get the correct number. These tallies on the printout sheet are used to add to the total in the county and this is reported to the media and on the site etc. I am guessing that absentee ballots follow the same process. Not sure how this can be an issue and is one thing Ohio got right the past few years concerning elections. This is at least how it is done in Hamilton County. I was a poll worker last year but unable to do it this year.

I would be surprised if most places are done by then.

In BC we had an election last Saturday, they are still counting a large proportion of the votes. But do you know who cares? Nobody because we enjoy a functioning society and want to maintain our democracy.

We also gave our conservatives (known as the Liberals here) running on tax cuts for the wealthy a solid kick in the ass.

I saw somewhere that Texas already has more people voting now then they did in 2016??  Where did these magical new voters come from?? Obvious election fraud.

December 8 to certify final results, but in order to settle disputes and do recounts etc you probably need preliminary results by mid-November.
