November 2, 2004

[1050pm]
The race is still fairly close. I’ve got my fingers crossed for Kerry and Edwards. I just don’t know. I’m just going to edit this entry and add to it as the night goes on.

[1053pm]
According to the AP, the White House race is left up to Ohio and Florida.

[0209am]
NPR reports the above. New Mexico, Ohio, Wisconsin, Nevada, and Iowa are still either too close or don’t have enough returns.

[0223am]
NPR and Yahoo give Bush Nevada.
Officials say that all of the provisional votes in Ohio will be counted.

[0256am]
This isn’t going to be over for a long damn time. Can I just move to Canada?

[0317am]
Bush is preparing to declare victory (and we all know how well he recognizes THAT) but Kerry refuses to concede until all votes are counted. What was that? Fl-Florida? Damn it. I’m going to bed.

[0318pm]
Bush declared victory, and Kerry conceded. The tallies everyone is reporting (even me) are unofficial. Those results come from a private company. The official totals will not be released for several weeks. Oh, yeah, not to mention the owner of the company that designed, built, and programmed the voting machines is has publicly stated he is pro-Bush. Those votes can’t be tracked, either. No paper trail. Am I declaring shenanigans? Well, someone should.
