As the country moves increasingly to forced vote by mail systems, many races this year remain too close to call more than a week after this year’s election.
In Creswell Oregon, Election Director Annette Newingham, had this to say to the local paper:
“Oregon’s vote-by-mail system is easy for the voters, but labor intensive on this end,” explained Newingham. “We must determine the voter’s intent and verify each signature.”
The race in question? A general bond, with about 3000 total votes cast! So with Oregon’s Vote-By Mail system, it takes um… almost 2 weeks to count 3000 votes.
And in other news…
In the State of Montana, a local race with just under 4000 votes ended in a tie today. 10 days after the election was held.
Vote by mail and it can take 2 weeks to count 4000 votes.
