But, Ohio permits absentee ballots to continue to arrive and be counted up until Nov 13th (so long as they are postmarked by Nov 2nd). Thus, if it's close and there are still a lot of ballots not returned on Nov 3rd, they may not be able to declare a winner.Gregg wrote: ↑Tue Oct 13, 2020 4:01 am By the by, Ohio could be the end.
We count our early votes as they arrive, and that total is released the minute the polls close. So if Ohio goes for Biden at the end of the night, that wrecks every path Trump has to win. No chaos, no battle to the death cage match, Ohio goes blue, its over.
Trump might not accept it, but everyone who matters will.
Here in Florida, the mail ballots must received by 7pm Nov 3rd (regardless of postmark), so Florida has a better chance of announcing a state winner on election night. (yeah, yeah, I know... Florida -- good odds we will F-it up yet again)
