    Georgia was actually fairly fast last time as well, it was just that it came down to be very close.

    Didn't it take 5 days or some such back in November? I'm not saying this couldn't take until Sunday, but it feels like it's a lot faster this time around.

    They had all the vote save a few percent the first night after the blue shift because of the mail-ins being counted last. Then, like this time, people had until Friday to make corrections if their ballot hadn't been counted. Because the election was so close, we didn't know for sure until Friday but it was highly likely it was already going for Biden since mail-in ballots were likely to just help him.

    If this race were to get down that close, we'll also be waiting until Friday to know for sure.

    As was pointed out, a rule change has sped up the counting process. So, no, it wasn’t what you describe.

    For swing voters and lightly Republican voters it'll be hard to ever vote Republican again after blue wins and 2k checks go out.
    The stench of this loss is 100% on Trump, and thus on his gutless henchmen, and every traitorous shitbird who went along at the expense of our democracy. As it should be.

    I shall wait 24 hours and then share his confidence. I would then like to watch every conservative pundit implode with rage.

    Ugh, I just wish Chuck would give up on being Majority Leader, and let someone with actual balls do it....like Liz Warren.

    I hope we really end up with a first world problem like that.

    I'd be okay with that, if only to rub even more salt in the wound of trump's ego.

    First world? I take it you're leaving off decimals and not rounding since half the country is basically 2nd world.

    So the party's in this thread, is it? That's cool. I still have...(counts)...9 pieces of the best fried chicken for 50 miles and two Starbucks drinks.

    From CNN's live feed, because at this point I'm pouring motherfucking hot sauce on the Party of Trump's wounds:

    Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger tonight hailed the state's "tremendous turnout," but warned votes are still coming in from across the state and overseas that might ultimately determine the outcome of the two Senate races.

    “Its very close as you can see," Raffensperger said, speaking with CNN's Wolf Blitzer just before midnight.

    Raffensperger, who is a Republican, declined to speculate on how the distribution of uncounted votes might affect the final count, but said unprocessed ballots were "somewhat scattered" across the state.

    "We are a very competitive state," Raffensperger told CNN. "We are just going to have to wait and see how this all turns out."
    He also pointed out that up to 17,000 overseas and military ballots would not be counted until Friday at 5 p.m., and indicated that election officials may soon pause counting for the night.

    Raffensperger, who is charge of Georgia's elections, hailed the large turnout, saying he believed it could reach nearly 4.6 million once all ballots are counted. In contrast, about 5 million Georgians voted in the 2020 election.

    It's been a "tremendous turnout," he said.
