Black Out Election Coverage Until The Final Vote Is Cast

Friday, September 18, 2020

Pennsylvania has ruled that as long as a ballot is postmarked on election day, the vote will count.
This is as it should be all across the nation.

According to the US Constitution, the electors only have to know how they are to cast the electoral votes, which actually elect the President, on the third Monday in December.  This is based on the election day popular vote.  Surely any Postal system could  get mail delivered way before then.

Some say we have to know election night who won.  That is not accurate.  The news media has made it traditional that we know, but there is nothing in law that says that.   Imagine how long people had to wait for like the first 100 years of this nation's history.  And we survived.

I believe that there ought to be a total black out of all election reporting until the last person in Hawaii votes.  Imagine how peaceful that might prove.

Some people need to read the Constitution.
