Every Vote Counts!
From the League of Women Voters of the United States:
official election results have never come on Election Day. Our democracy depends on a full count of every eligible vote cast. Each state sets an official deadline for results to be certified. In some states, that can be as soon as two days after the elections, while others may have certification deadlines up to a month after Election Day. It takes time to count all of the ballots coming in from voters. When states take the time to count the votes, it’s a sign that the process is working.
We know that people will be increasingly eager for results to be called. But we must remain dedicated to protecting the integrity of our democratic system because democracy is worth waiting for.
