US Election

Well, it's gone 3am here, and no real surprises so far.

I strongly suspect right now that nothing will be settled until tomorrow. And even then, it'll come down to one or two swing states again. But with the record numbers of people still queuing to vote right now, that'll take some time yet.

So, I'm off to bed. Hopefully, things will be sorted when I wake up, but somehow I doubt that. :(

Great. Just Great.

Oh joy.

Another US election, another long wait for a result. And worst of all - Ohio (which is looking like this year's Florida) still uses chads.

*head-desk*

I'm putting my money on the table right here and now and saying that it'll be two weeks yet (at least) before the result is accepted by both sides. Whatever it is.

Poll #377760 How long before we know the next President?

So, how long do you think it's be until we know for sure who the next US President will be?

We'll know today, stupid!

'Bout a week, maybe. But all done and dusted by then.

Minimum of two weeks given all the lawyers involved.

January. Specificaly the day before inauguration.

None of the Above. The courts will decide for us, and we'll spend the next four years bitching about it.
