    So is it Congressman Altschuler now? Does this add one more to the election night win?

    NO election results should be released until ALL the ballots are tallied.

    And in a presidential race no results should be released until after the polls have closed in ALL of the states.

    Might give people in HI a bit of incentive to vote.

    Maybe you should wait for confirmation before celebrating.


    "About 9,000 absentee ballots cast in the 1st Congressional District race have yet to be counted. By law, they could be dropped in the mail until the day before the election, and counting is not expected to begin for days."

    This isn't a reporting issue, this is an 'after hours voting fraud' issue.

    I'm still waiting to see how many found/illegal votes turn up for Mark Dayton in MN governor.

    Not sure there is enough information at this point to draw conclusions.

    Perhaps Bishop should have waited before decalaring victory with 9,000 votes left to count?

    I listened to The Strategy Room on election day ~ no TV, nor radio ~ and they were talking about several of the races not being over for WEEKS, due to the process of casting ballots and counting them.

    On another note, I noticed that marking your choice with an X or ✔ doesn't count; only completely blackened out boxes are allowed. What's up with that? If you USE a mark, does your VOTE not count?
