Certified Election Results Due In December

Why worry about getting the Nov election results faster than a drive-thru burger?

Sure, a quick result is nice and we've been able to make the 'call' within several hours, after the polls close.

But, let's talk about the legally defined CERTIFIED final election results. This gives each state the time to handle voter challenges, tie races and any other legal steps that may arise for every election.
The Certification is the official results the state's must report. Not one is due on Nov 3rd, 4th or 5th! The earliest date is Nov 10th.

The link below, shows the 'certification dates due' for each state.

The final results are not due until well after the election and some states report in December.

The certification dates rranges from Nov 10, 2020 to Dec 8, 2020.
So, who won? Officially we will not know until Dec 8, 2020...the last date for any state to report the certified results.

1. This will be very upsetting to the

Infotainment Cable Noise Media. They must have their drama and have it will great looking sets, multiple talking heads and inspiring intro music, filling airtime between ads for drugs we never knew we needed.

It's all about the ratings....
