70 million ballots mailed and approximately 40 million received to be counted
Let that sink in. In all probability there’s a very good chance this election isn’t called for weeks if not months.......unless the Red Wave is a tsunami!

Pennsylvania is really the only state where both the margin and amount of ballots could make it tough to call on election night.

Possibly Nevada too.

Ballots can be processed and counted before the election. The results just can't be announced. Not saying all states do it but many do.

Democrats will find as many ballots as they need to win

Not true. The electoral college meets December 14. That is the only vote that matters.

re: 70 million ballots mailed and approximately 40 million received to be counted
someone said yesterday that only Philly and Pittsburgh do non-absentee mail-in and everything else in the state in early in-person or election day. Is that true?

Dems are showing big % leads in mail in, but the volumes seem lower at just over a million.

Surely that car up in Michigan where they found all those votes in the trunk for Al Franken has gone to the junk yard by now?

Im worried in swing states the left will figure out that the .5% rejection rate could cost them the election.

Watch...they will use the courts to attempt to rule the requirements listed in mail in ballots need to be ignored in order to let the votes count.

My ballot package clearly stated that if i didnt use the security envelope inside the mailing envelope and if I didnt sign the affidavit....my ballot would be rejected.

Just because they mailed out 70 million does not mean they will receive all 70 back. I did not request one and received several. I will vote in person.

There may be a consolidated SCOTUS ruling of multiple cases before November 3rd:

All unsolicited mail out ballots are invalid.

All votes must be counted by November 3rd.

In person voting requires signature verification.

Party assigned poll watchers can not be prohibited.

Everyone mailing in an unsolicited mail in ballot should now vote in person.

COVID-19 voting restrictions for in person voting is waived to speed up voting lines.

Mask are optional.

Looks like there are 21000 voting precincts in the US. 1900 per precinct doesn’t sound unreasonable.

How can you post here and not know how elections work

quote:

Nov. 3, 2020: Election Day, when voters in each state will select their presidential electors. The names of electors are not on the ballot in most states. Rather, when a voter casts a vote for a presidential candidate, s/he is also casting a vote for the electors already selected by the party of that candidate. If a majority of voters in a state vote for the Republican candidate for president, the Republican slate of electors is elected. If a majority vote for the Democratic candidate, the Democratic slate of electors is chosen.

Dec. 8, 2020: Deadline for Resolving Election Disputes. All state recounts and court contests over presidential election results must be completed by this date.

Dec. 14, 2020: Meeting of the Electors. The electors meet in each state and cast their ballots for president and vice president. Each elector votes on his or her own ballot and signs it. The ballots are immediately transmitted to various people: one copy goes to the president of the U.S. Senate (who is also the vice president of the United States); this is the copy that will be officially counted later. Other copies go to the state's secretary of state, the National Archives and Records Administration, and the presiding judge in the district where the electors meet (this serves as a backup copy that would replace the official copy sent to the
president of the Senate if it is lost or destroyed).

Dec. 23, 2020: Deadline for Receipt of Ballots. The electors' ballots from all states must be received by the president of the Senate by this date. There is no penalty for missing this deadline.

Jan. 6, 2021: Counting of the Electoral Ballots. The U.S. Congress meets in joint session to count the electoral votes.

Jan. 20, 2021: Inauguration Day. The president-elect becomes the president of the United States.
