What Is The Rush Of Calling The Election The Night Of?.... [View all]

Why is the election called so fast? Why should a candidate concede so fast?

Haven't we learned that all kinds of shennanigans go on around the country and polling is off that leads to all kinds of questions regarding the veracity of the results?

Shouldn't we take the time after election day to verify the results - maybe some standard audit - before the results are made official and a winner declared?

Wouldn't that be a sane way to deal with all the issues regarding rigging, fraud, hacking, etc.

I put this up for discussion here because it seems that after every election we run into these questions and issues.

An official audit of all results should be standard operating procedure before the results are certified and a winner declared.

And this should be for all elections - not only the presidency.

I think it would solve a lot of problems.
