Elections 2020

Post-Election Update

Celebrate democracy! Every election, we get the chance to shape our democracy with our vote. Even through the stresses that 2020 has brought, the League encourages you to take a moment to celebrate our democracy. What a beautiful thing it is.

Delayed results: As we wait for votes to be counted, we know that this waiting period is exactly what should be happening. Some states, such as Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, do not allow election workers to process, then count, ballots until Election Day. Opening the envelopes, checking each signature, and then counting each mail-in ballot will take time. 

Voted in person on Election Day? Fill out our quick survey and let us know about the experience.
