It has been made clear that we will not be given a definitive answer as to who won the election on Nov 3. The obvious efforts of the media pushing for Biden to remove Trump from office have only been re-enforced by their refusal to cover the Hunter Biden story. The way the next couple of months play out can be speculated in multiple ways, but we are confident to inform you of how and why phase one of the election delay will take place.
Mail in voting has been a controversial topic in 2020, with those on the left insisting that vote-by-mail be extended to everyone due to the COVID19 pandemic. Opposition on the right argues that this opens the door to further opportunity for voter fraud.
Voter fraud concerns have been heavily touted by President Trump on the campaign trail as he encourages supporters to show up and vote in person. The media, continuing their denial of the facts, insist that Trumps claims are baseless despite recurring reports to the contrary.
Buzzfeed has provided a chart of cut off dates for the receipt of mail in ballots to arrive by state. This is a topic that has been a focus of officials and the courts. Attempts to extend ballot receipt in Wisconsin – a key battle state – to 6 days after the election has been denied by the Supreme Court.
Looking at battleground states, ballots can be received as late as Nov 13 on Ohio. This means that if the race in Ohio is even remotely considered a close race, the decision can and will be held up until at least the 13th, if not longer depending on the status of vote counting. A landslide rendering all 18 electoral votes in Ohio unnecessary would be the only way to avoid this.
Nevada is accepting votes until the 10th, Iowa until the 9th, and both North Carolina and Pennsylvania are accepting ballots until the 6th.
These decisions guarantee that no candidate can acquire the necessary electoral votes on election night to declare a winner. The dates for counting conclusion cannot be delayed too far beyond without expecting backlash from an already anxious public.
Depending on your level of trust in our election commission and news media, this predicament opens doors for further delays that we will observe. We are confident in this phase one of the election delay, and will provide phase two when we see the direction this takes on and after “Election Night.”
