Predictions and polls abound about how the 2020 election will play out this November, but one thing is almost certain: We are not going to have results on election night! Do not be persuaded that anyone knows for sure on Nov. 3. We have mail-in ballots that will take time to get counted. Even though Washington is experienced, many states are new to this type of voting.
We will be fine even if we have to wait for democracy to run its course. Every vote deserves to be counted accurately and completely. Every voice counts. We need to encourage the media and candidates to be patient in announcing the results from that process.
This year is like no other. Showing patience for our 2020 elections is just one more covid-19 challenge!
