    As expected, it is taking some states multiple days to release enough initial results so that media organizations feel confident enough to project winners. Results are coming out in bunches, and we expect there will soon be a projected winner of the presidential contest. But to make it official, local and state election officials have to canvass and certify the results.
    When it comes to canvassing and certifying, each state has its own timeline.

      Some media organizations seem pretty damn confident. Good Morning America has already called him the President-elect--which of course he isn't until the Electoral College says so, however this shakes out.

        Same media crowd also proclaimed President Hillary. Were they right then? Are they right now? Where are these Biden votes coming from, anyway? My impression is it's all from states run by Democrat machines.

        When I first started working with computers decades ago, a few people were busily floating the idea that we would use computers instead of paper ballots for our elections. At that time I thought and occasionally stated, "What a stupid idea! How can we know if the result is real or fabricated?" I was met with derisive laughter, "Paper ballots are too slow. It takes forever to count them. This is a democracy. People should be able to vote on everything, which would be easy if it were done by computer."

        There have been calls for "Internet voting," which is right up there with the statement: "It must be true. I read it on the Internet," and with the famous New Yorker cartoon by Peter Steiner, "On the Internet, nobody knows you're a dog."

      In my opinion, the media shouldn't be announcing ANY results until the various Secretaries of State certify the election results - no matter how long that takes. The notion that the media has the authority to "call" any State's election results is preposterous. And really, until the Electoral College votes, even that is premature in most cases.

      Of course, I also would like to see the following mandatory provisions for all Federal elections:
      1) positive ID is required at polling places
      2) mail-in/absentee ballots should require the following:
      a) a specific request by the intended recipient stating why they can not vote the day of the election.
      b) absentee ballots must be received the day BEFORE the in-person vote takes place. No exceptions.
      c) absentee ballots must be witnessed by another person - preferably a Notary Public - that the individual filling out the vote is the addressee of the ballot and currently and legally lives at the registered address in conformance with voting/taxation policy (meaning that the address registered as the "primary" address for taxation purposes is also the ONLY valid address for voting purposes).
      d) Those in the military voting via absentee ballot should be allowed to complete their ballots with their commanding officer as the witness. All military ballots should be completed one month prior to the day of election and all military ballots should be handled as secure documents. Any tampering with or delay of military absentee ballots constitutes a federal crime.
      3) Provisions for same-day voter registration should be acceptable provided the individual shows proof of current address and has a witness willing to vouch for that individual on pain of prosecution for voter fraud - just like for absentee ballots - and has not voted in any other precinct - including by absentee ballot.

      Punishments for federal voter fraud should be no less than twenty years in prison and a permanent prohibition from being eligible to work for either State or Federal government.

    GSA Responds to Biden Campaign: ‘Ascertainment Has Not yet Been Made’ on Power Transfer

      Quid Pro Quo Joe is already acting like he is president. Today Rush said Biden made positive remarks on the vaccine he and Kamala has been putting down since Trump has pushing that Operation Light Speed thing.
      Rush predicted that Buy-Den and the Jackass Party will claim full credit if the vaccine works as advertised and they are still in power.
      Of course, if something is wrong with the vaccine ya just gotta know the Dems will say it's all Trump's fault. It will like Obama always blaming Bush.

        And Pfizer announced success on their vaccine trials today. Not coincidentally, just after the media (illegally) gave the presidency to Buy-den. Guess Pfizer didn't like Trump promising cheaper prescription drugs and cutting their profits.

          Lots of big money fat cats want to do away with lots of goods things Trump has done for the middle class, workers and minorities (some blacks and Latinos have begun to appreciate by leaving the Dem plantation).
