Ballot Counting Facts
You will hear a lot about ballot counting this week. Here are some facts, courtesy of the National Conference of State Legislatures, a non-partisan organization.
Each state continues to count ballots after election day. This is completely normal, it happens with every single election. It takes time to count them all. No state certifies a winner in a race on election night. Counting all the votes is not the same as stealing the election. Counting all votes is the choice. Ballots can arrive in 18 states after Election Day under the laws in those states. Military ballots may be received in 29 states after election day, under the laws in those states. The election results are confirmed at the state and local levels. The President and the US Attorney General have no control over how votes are counted. Any candidate or action advocate can win anytime – it’s a free country – but a claim to victory or a concession speech mean nothing. It is the actual state-approved votes that count.
Certification of results: how long could it take
Each state sets its own rules for how long the counting process can take.
This map, created by the National Conference of State Legislatures, shows how long local election officials have to confirm the results.
