Shocking remarks made by the Federal Elections Commission Commissioner Ellen Weintraub on Monday confirmed many Americans’ fears about mail-in ballots: the winner likely won’t be declared on election night — and she said “this is okay” that we may have delayed results.
“Let me just tell everybody, we’re all going to need to take a deep breath and be patient this year,” Weintraub said on CNN Monday morning. “There’s a substantial chance we are not going to know on election night what the results are.”
She made it clear: just take a deep breath and be patient and let the government decide if Donald J. Trump won reelection — what could go wrong?
Her admission about not knowing results — especially the Presidency and other races “that are important to people” — should come as a concern to voters.
She did not provide a deadline for when results would be known.
The Commissioner also warned Americans against believing everything they read on the internet and to be vigilant of the content they share and to know that it could be false information produced by Russian or other foreign actors.

Historic Recall: San Francisco recalls soft on crime District Attorney
San Francisco voters have officially recalled extreme progressive Chesa Boudin. The San Francisco Chronicle noted the event as a “historic recall.”
BREAKING: San Francisco removes Chesa Boudin in historic recall.
— San Francisco Chronicle (@sfchronicle) June 8, 2022
“The election, closely-watched across the nation, came after months of intense debate over criminal justice and public safety in San Francisco” writes the Chronicle.
The voters are “frustrated with a dysfunctional city” and horrendous crime rates. They saw “an elected official unwilling to acknowledge he was at least partly responsible for the problems – and cast him out.”
Boudin received an overwhelming 60% vote in favor of recall. San Francisco voters “embrace being labeled as progressive” but “decided they wanted a more traditional crime-fighter as district attorney and delivered what will be viewed nationally as a blow to efforts to reshape criminal justice” adds the Chronicle.
