October 21: Missouri (by mail). October 24: Alaska (by mail), Florida (by mail), Iowa (by mail). November 2: Arkansas (in person), Connecticut, Delaware (in person), Illinois (in person), Iowa (in person), Michigan (in person), Montana, Minnesota, New York, South Dakota, Vermont, Wyoming. October 30: Delaware, Georgia, Louisiana, Michigan (by mail), South Carolina. October 22: Indiana. October 23: Arizona, Idaho, Nebraska (by mail), New Jersey, Virginia (by mail), Texas, Utah. October 29: Alabama, Illinois (by mail), Maine, Oregon, Wisconsin (by mail). November 1: Wisconsin (in person). So that’s not necessarily the situation we’ll face in November. And in the report, we said that a delay in the full processing of the absentee ballots is to be expected when you’re dealing with states that are going to face many of these ballots and don’t have long experience counting them. But I do think that these have far-reaching implications, because if you have a significant percentage of the population that believes that our elections are routinely rigged or stolen, then it’s hard to see how you can have a functioning democracy. The Knicks have won just five of their 40 games so far this season, are currently on a 15-game losing streak, and have only won one of their last 26 contests.
The speed tiers are more or less consistent across the board, but the prices are not. The main concern is that people don’t request them soon enough in places where they need to make a request, because what we’ve seen in the primaries is that many voters waited until later in the process when they’re more likely to be paying attention to the election and that a combination of inundated election officials, slow Postal Service delivery and procrastination by voters left us with thousands of voters who failed to get their ballots returned on time and who were then effectively disenfranchised. And I think the media is now much more educated about the fact that with new states facing a potential flood of mail-in ballots, that there could be a delay in the results. CNN: Trump has repeatedly cited New York as an example of problems with mail-in voting. But even before Trump’s comments earlier this week about Harris, the daughter of Jamaican and Indian parents, Trump had centered his campaign on his efforts to create fears of “otherness” in the hearts of White Americans. The White House press secretary reasserted that Russia fueled the instability.
Kushner, who is both a White House and a campaign aide to Trump, pointed out that the President said “he had no idea whether that’s right or wrong” – a technique Trump often uses when he’s trying to shirk responsibility for spreading disinformation. RH: Exactly right. In fact, I was part of an ad hoc committee that issued a report in April called Fair Elections During a Crisis. RH: That’s right. He did make that statement. RH: Well, first and foremost, I’m worried about his supporters accepting the legitimacy of the election in the event that he loses. RH: I think the process is starting early enough. Do you think at this point a critical mass of people understand that? He often will point to relatively small instances of fraud or point to instances of election problems that don’t involve any proof of fraud. And that’s why we might not have results — definitive results — of the election on election night. As CNN’s Joan Biskupic reports: Some Democratic lawyers have begun arguing that states could take until late December to submit their Electoral College totals.
So the reason we would not know the winner on election night is if it is close enough in a state or states that are crucial to the Electoral College outcome, where there are many outstanding absentee ballots to be counted. It could be, for example, that Pennsylvania is extremely close and we’ll take a week or two to figure out who has won that state’s Electoral College votes. It means the message has gotten through that the race could be too early to call if it’s close. I mean, the fact that there are significant percentages of people who don’t expect that I think is a good sign. We definitely rate this jersey high up there as one of the best ones worn. I think people don’t understand that the reason for the delay in reporting of absentee ballot results is that there are security measures in place to make sure that the ballots are valid and were sent in by the voters who were supposed to be sending them in. Some Republican lawyers counter that earlier dates are hard and fast.
