We’re not stating this claim in the rhetorical sense, like everything’s hopeless in the end and it doesn’t matter who gets elected because they’re all compromised, and yeah, both sides do it, etc. etc., and so how sad our elections have become. We get enough of that phony equivalence cant on TV.
No, it’s because any prospective vote count tonight will be way too premature because of last year’s change in state election law, and thus any reasonable person will want to wait until at least Thursday night before making assumptions about the outcome.
But let’s see if this stops the booster crowd. Or the city clerk, who obviously jumped the gun last time in pronouncing Springer the likely winner. And just why was that?
Those remaining Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday ballots count too. Maybe more so. Tonight means nothing.
