I wish we were as good as they think we are.  By their reckoning we should never ever lose an election. Ever.

Really, Greg Palast... Russian Collusion, gerrymandering, etc. 

Libs need to get into a 12 step program or the stages of grief and make it thru denial.

The 5 stages of a liberal election loss
1. The GOP cheated
2. The Russians interfered
3. F*ck the Greens
4. Candidate sucked

Man’s greatness is so obvious that it can even be deduced from his wretchedness, for what is nature in animals we call wretchedness in man, thus recognizing that, if his nature is today like that of the animals, he must have fallen from some better state which was once his own.

It's funny they're so outraged over these 'uncounted' votes.  You don't count spoiled ballots and they've been told numerous times it is the law in Ohio to wait 10 days to count provisional ballots.  The top of their heads are coming off because they want them counted NOW!  I wish they would count them now.  The reason they're provisional is because the people who cast them couldn't provide proof they were eligible to vote and the 10 days gives them time to go to the courthouse with the proof they need.  Count them now, I say!   :lmao:

I have never been clear on a provisional ballot.  If the provisional voter doesn't do anything after they cast the ballot, is the ballot discarded after a certain number of days?

My understanding is that the reason they're having to cast the provisional ballot is because they couldn't provide the ballot worker the information they needed to, to prove they have a right to vote in the election or that district.  Once the ballot is cast the voter has so many days to go to the courthouse and prove they have the right to vote and if they don't, the ballot is trashed.  This is why they don't count them for several days.  In this case, 10 days.
