State Official Suspiciously Says Results Won’t Be Ready On Election Night

( It would appear that gone are the days when election results might be known on the same day voting took place.

The Democratic Secretary of State for Pennsylvania, Leigh M. Chapman, has already informed voters that there will most likely be delays in counting the midterm elections.

Given that the election has not yet occurred, Chapman’s warnings seem strange.

Chapman was reportedly cited as stating, “it’s vitally crucial for us to have correct information about the electoral process in Pennsylvania.”

He also stated during the virtual news conference that the state of Pennsylvania is working closely with the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security to tackle “threats.”

Chapman would go on to say since he’s been in office in January, they have continually met with the FBI and Homeland Security to talk through what the current threat landscape is and about the tools that can be given to counties to make sure that they have physical security protection as well as cyber security protection.

CBS News says there is no correlation between not knowing who won an election on election night and the election being unfair or inaccurate results. In accordance with the laws of Arizona, all ballots, including those that were sent, must be returned by 7 o’clock on Election Day. However, after receiving the ballots, the officials have 20 days to complete their counts.

In Nevada, counties have four days to tally late-arriving mailed ballots, and voters are given an additional two days to make corrections to mailed ballots that come in envelopes with errors or are missing information. This week, the elections official in the county that encompasses Reno reminded voters of the extended schedule and warned them that it is doubtful that final, official results will be available until the actual canvassing of the vote on November 18.

That may be all well and good, but if you needed to cheat, protracting the results would be the first line of offense.

As technology has advanced, the vote count has become more sluggish.

Should we go back to the older methods?
