Know your state.
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:
