There is never a “final total” on election night. Never. We sometimes but not always know the winner because of experts’ unofficial conclusions based on non-final data.

K12 Educators - You are invited to a November 5th #sschat to think with other educators about how to process the election, teach about ongoing activities, and keep students thinking about civic and political engagement #GrowingVoters

Some USPS mail ballot advice (I’m actually a former USPS employee): If mailing a ballot long distance e.g. >500 miles, like a college student away, consider starting next week taking it into a post office and sending priority mail. (Yes it’s around $7.25). (Or mail it TODAY)
