So let's see if we here at NT can forestall some to the election disinformation that will be posted here this week.

There is a lot of BS going around about how long it will take to get the vote totals from each state on election night. Some are insisting that the vote totals @ midnight on November 3 rd should be the totals that should be used to delegate Electoral College votes.

The fact is, NO state certifies their election results on the day of the election. Not ONE.

Each state legislature has codified their deadline for such a certification and ONLY THEN can we all be certain of the Electoral College vote totals and thus who won the Presidency.

Of course pundits will 'predict' and 'project' but I'm talking about OFFICIAL NUMBERS here. There will be quite a few state officials that can give us those numbers long before their deadlines and some that will scramble to make their deadlines.

The purpose of this seed is to try and hammer home to members that our STATE representatives have set the rules and we need to be patient and allow our STATE officials do the jobs WE elected them to do.

So I propose that members do some research and post the deadlines for certification of the votes cast in their state. I'll start with my first comment.

Here a link to the deadlines:

Comments that do not contain the state deadline in your state will be removed, Copy and Paste your states deadline from the link to start your comment, EVERY TIME you comment. NO EXCEPTIONS.

Indiana - 11/24/2020

The above meets my red box rule requirements. 

Here's some more info for Indiana from the link:

"DEADLINE, by noon, for the Indiana Election Division to tabulate the number of votes cast for presidential electors, statewide offices (other than governor and lieutenant governor), or a judicial office according to the certificates submitted by the circuit court clerks or the Lake and Porter County election directors. Immediately after the completion of the tabulation, the secretary of state certifies to the governor the candidate receiving the highest number of votes for each office."

Interesting. And I like that this "activity" slows me down long enough to be informed of the proper deadline. I shall endeavor not to forget it!

I looked through a mountain of crap and it is listed under local elections

not before the 15th day after the election and no later than 30 days after

which one can surmise in 12/03/20

But I am not sure.

They say that Trump learns better with pictures. Maybe someone can show him that graph and use some crayons or sharpies to explain it to him. It could save them a lot in legal fees.

His lawyers should just take that fool's money! I'm sorry. But if you tell an empty hard-headed. . . man something and he still tries to "perpetrate" let his behind pay the cost—literally. Bill him at standard rate!

Kentucky 11-23 for 2020. KRS 118.425 (5)

The media has always announced the projected winners of each state and that will not change this election. It will take a bit longer for some states to be projected. My projections through 1AM on the 4th...

7PM: D-16; R-28
8PM: D-95; R-76
9PM: D-138; R-109
10PM: D-144; R-124
11PM: D-218; R-128
12AM: D-222; R-128
1AM: D-222; R-131

Unless i am wrong, federal law states that states  have 45 days ( i think)after actual election day to certify results and for the EC to meet, which is usually in the second or third week of December.

those state`s that cannot or do not certify by that time for whatever reason would throw the election into congress IF the required 270 had not been reached by a candidate, in that case , the house would choose the president with a single vote per state , and the senate would choose the VP with a single vote per state .

 Could very well under that situation , end up with a president and Vp of different parties , and since its in Dec , there is no guarantee that the newly elected congress would do the choosing, but could and would be the currently sitting congress we have now.

Yet Trump just said today that he's going to send out his legal team and insist that states stop tabulating votes at the 'end of election day' based solely on the fact that he 'doesn't like it'.

well what a president says , and what a president can do are actually 2 different things in reality , and that goes for whom ever sits in the office.

Lip service and kerfluffle as far as im concerned, not worth a friggen tinkers damn

Misread the rules the first time, getting old. 

Florida 11/17/2020 "Elections Canvassing Commission meets to certify Official Results for federal, state, and multicounty offices."

We also have one of the best vote by mail systems in the country. You can trace your ballot via the net from delivery to received to accepted.

I concur.

My youngest was freaked out by all of the USPS stories and took her mail in ballot to the drive through on Sunday and got her sticker and tracking info.

Not very interested in politics but she said she voted against anyone Ron Desantis endorsed from the top down, lol

Yay! DeSantis pissed me off to new heights with his antics last week appearing at the Trump rally unmasked. With all that is going on in his fair state of seniors and the like, there he was on the Trump platform displaying a poor example for others! If republicans won't check republicans when they are manifestly wrong; who else can? Trump is wrong to go maskless in public and DeSantis is wrong for doing so too!

In WI counting starts when polls open on Tuesday and we expect to have results by Wednesday morning. State election law says counts cannot be paused once they have started.

Minnesota's deadline for certifying the vote tallies is still 11/24/20, as far as I know.  I have heard some talk about extending the certification deadline but I don't know if that has gone anywhere.  Minnesota has extended the time to count mail in ballots until 11/10/20.

BTW, Minnesota begins counting absentee and mail in ballots 14 days before the election.  Minnesota had the highest voter turnout for the 2016 election at 74 pct.  So far, early voting is at about 50 pct of the 2016 turnout but I haven't seen a breakdown between mail in voting and early in-person voting.
