DEMOCRACY IS WORTH WAITING FOR!
Election Day was yesterday. When will we know the results? Citizens are accustomed to having the presidential election “called” on the evening of the first Tuesday in November or early in the morning of the next day. One candidate concedes; another claims victory.
But election night results have never been official results. These results are predictions based on analysis by experts working for the news media. Every state has always made its official results known in the days and weeks following the election. Why? Because every vote counts and every vote must be counted.
Across the country, almost 100 million people voted before November 3. (In 2016 a total of 136.5 million votes were cast.) What great news! We are looking at a record turnout.
But please remember, although we are anxious for results, a complete and accurate count is far more important than an election night projection.
