Politico: We Might Not Know Midterm Results On Election Day

The mainstream media is warning that we may not know the election results on Election Day. What could possibly go wrong?

Americans may not know the results of the 2022 midterm elections on Election Day, or even for days after voting ends, Politico warned the Internet this morning.

The left wing website explains that, like the last election, the votes from the 2022 midterm elections may not be counted in hours. No, as in the last election, it may take days or even weeks for election workers to count thousands of votes, due in no small part to pandemic-era mail in voting still being available on a widespread basis in a handful of states.

“Many of the same factors” as the 2020 election “are at play in 2020,” Politico explained. “Add in the continued popularity of mail voting and state laws in Pennsylvania and elsewhere that can delay processing of those ballots, and the chance of another waiting game is distinct — possibly with control of the Senate up in the air.”

While Democrats claim that the suspicious delays during the vote count and odd behavior from vote counters are merely part of Democracy™, the majority of Republicans remain convinced that operatives exploited the COVID-19 pandemic and ballot harvesting laws to steal the 2020 election from 45th President Donald Trump in key battleground states.

Part of this effort, those Republicans believe, involved inflating the number of mail-in votes using ballot harvesting and drop boxes then further manipulating those votes by keeping election observers from watching as the votes were tabulated late at night.

Though Republicans maintain that the delays were caused by vote fraud, and Democrats maintain that the delays were caused by issues with the novel concept of mail-in voting, both parties seem to agree that five day delays in election results are less than ideal for a healthy society.

Some have questioned why government officials have not worked to avoid such a scenario in 2022.

“Very convenient that not one of these ‘issues’ has been addressed in two years,'” wrote one pundit on Twitter. “Same as before, sham as it will be,” wrote a second.

Indeed, Politico notes that should elections happen in a timely fashion in November, it will not be because of new policies.

Instead, the website explains, “midterms usually have significantly fewer ballots to count than in a presidential election like 2020” and adds that “some voters who opted to vote via the mail in 2020” are “expected to return to voting in person” this year.

In other words, should the pandemic heat up again, or should ballot harvesting remain a viable election strategy in some states, we may be looking at a repeat of 2020 later this year, or perhaps more likely, we may see that repeat in November of 2024.

Meanwhile, Joe Biden recently appeared to admit to the existence of widespread voter fraud.

He promised voters in a speech that he would introduce “election reform” to make sure “no one has the opportunity to steal an election again.”

    So if the steal happens and America is done for, what’s next?

    1. Sit here and whine about it like 2020?

    2. Fight back?

    3. Move to Japan, Hungary, Sweeden?

    You people have tolerated this for far too long. You allowed this to happen too easily. I’ve lost hope. I know it will be stolen and no one will do anything about it. Guess it’s time to move out of America? Thanks a lot, weak-minded conservatives.

      And don’t get me started with Michael Baxter of Real Raw News. All of this is just MAGA-coping fanfiction. He keeps giving false hopes that the military will stop this, which hasn’t happened so far.

    “In other words, should the pandemic heat up again…” You heard Dementia Joe in that 60 Minutes clip. The pandemic is over. Then the White House panicked because he loosened government control over our lives with that statement.

    If the results are not reported in a timely manor without any BS or caveats then we need to lock up all involved in the counting including the company execs who supplied the machines until there is a real and complete audit of every vote. If we find more than 1% fuadulent ballots keep them all locked up until their trials and convictions. Then summarily hang every damn one involved for treason because voter fraud is nothing less.

      I agree with James. Free and fair elections are tantamount to a free and fair society and, more importantly, the continued existence of our Republic. Any and all involved with voter fraud should be publicly executed by hanging.
      Also, in regards to mail-in vote states – if it’s found that the total vote count surpasses the number of registered voters in the state, ALL mail-in votes are thrown out. No exceptions.

        There can be no insurance against fraud with “mail-out ballots” to all. That ploy was designed specifically to increase possibilities to commit fraud while reducing the likelihood of discovering that fraud. I would prefer 2 solid weeks of in-person voting, with partisans at every ballot box, over any election conducted with the help of the USPS. These games were SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED for fraud and to lower our confidence in our own elections. Seriously, this is 3rd world antics and people are allowing it to just happen. Tell your state officials they aren’t gonna get away with it. Public hanging is alittle much, but a few years of hard time is in order for monkeying with our elections. .. and conservative people need to volunteer as judges, not monitors.

    Why is it that five key swing states all stopped the vote count at the exact same time in 2020?, since the 2020 election mountains of definitive proof have come to light showing how the election was stolen.
    At one of his sparsely attended 2020 rallies, Joe Biden boasted that the Democrat party had developed the most extensive and sophisticated voter fraud organization America has ever seen.
    We are supposed to believe that Joe Biden who had less than 2000 people attend all of his 2020 campaign rallies combined, received more votes than both Hillary and Obama did when they ran for the presidency.
    Joe Biden can’t even fill a high school gym as demonstrated recently, yet we are supposed to believe he received 83 million votes.
    Despite the magnifying glass on voter fraud the Democrat leadership full well knows that if the Republicans gain majorities in both houses many of them may face charges ranging from perjury to outright treason, so they will be forced to implement their voter fraud organization once again in order to save their collective skins.

      With Merrick Garland in charge of the Department of Justice (total misnomer today) and its FBI, the Democrats are safe. Garland will not prosecute any Democrat for vote fraud; they might even intervene in State courts to save the fraudsters. Democrats are absolutely safe. Pitiful!
      William Barr, supposedly a Republican, would not even allow an investigation into vote fraud in 2020. Trump seems the only person with the balls to stand up and fight a corrupted system.

    This is battle space preparation for the steal that the Democrats are going to perpetrate.

    If you can’t produce same day results, the voting is illegitimate. Period end of story.

      There have never been “same day results” for elections. That’s why they aren’t even certified for at least two weeks after, and usually three or four.

      There’s simply no way to get you what you want, and that’s a good thing for our nation.

    Clowns here act like this is something new and unprecedented. The whole reason elections happen in November and new members of Congress are not seated until January is to provide enough time to count all the votes. If Republicans really cared about election security and efficiency, they would have supported numerous efforts to properly fund, staff, and manage federal and state elections. They never have, since their donor base gave them an advantage. Now that things are changing, they want to control the elections. Losers.

    You misunderstand Joe Biden. When Democrats refer to “election steal,” they are speaking of the election of 2000 (G W Bush over Al Gore) and the election of 2016 (Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton). Democrats absolutely refuse to consider the “most fair and honest election ever,” the election of 2020, to have been in any way less than absolutely clean. According to Democrats, no election won by a Democrat could possibly have been corrupt, and no election won by a Republican could possibly have been fair and honest. This is the unequivocally dishonest and corrupt speech of Democrats.

    Each precinct hand counts paper ballots and reports to the Election Supervisor within six hours of the polls closing.
    The Elections Supervisor counts absentee votes at the close of polling.
    Totals are given to the newspapers by 2AM.
    What’s so hard about that?
