The Election Is Finally, Officially Over

Posted by on Thu, Nov 8, 2012 at 12:33 PM

The Romney campaign just conceded Florida. The final electoral tally was 332 votes for Obama, 206 for Romney. The final, official popular vote numbers are still probably a long way out.

"The final, official popular vote numbers are still probably a long way out."

King County still haven't opened my ballot, let alone counted it. I mailed it the weekend after I got it on the Friday.

@2 You might want to call them. At that point in the process (received but signature not verified) there may be a problem with your signature.

@3 they confirmed the signature was fine days ago. They just haven't opened the inside packet yet, according to their tracker.

@4 I heard they had mechanical breakdowns.

@4

Hmmmm. I never noticed this sentence: "Your returned ballot packet will soon be opened and your ballot will be prepared for counting."

Will this actually be updated? I assumed the only thing that updates is the three step path below that sentence.

I would just like to point out that Nate Silver's predictions at fivethirtyeight.com were spot fucking on. His "probability of electoral vote count" chart had the highest odds, 20%, at just about 336.

Sadly, Nate Silver doesn't get laid. "Par for the course," says the beleaguered pollster.
