On November 3, millions of Americans will head to the polls in-person and cast their ballots to either elect or re-elect a president. A record-breaking number of people, 75M and counting, already voted, as more requested mail-in ballots and participated in early voting to curb the spread of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The primary races long finished, the round of debates over with, the race is so nearly over. On Tuesday night, as the tallies begin to roll in, the campaigns of Democratic Challenger Former Vice President Joe Biden and Incumbent President Donald Trump will wind down and brace for results.
Some election experts say that results this year might not be immediately clear, as a larger volume of mail-in ballots trickle in. Some wonder if sitting President Trump will accept the results of the election. Despite overwhelming evidence and statements from FBI Director Christopher Wray that there is no evidence of a national voter fraud threat due to mail-in voting, Trump, who voted absentee in the Florida primary, has repeatedly suggested otherwise, sowing doubt in the election results. In September, Biden said this about Trump accepting the election results: “I will accept it, and he will, too. You know why? Because once the winner is declared once all the ballots are counted, that’ll be the end of it.”
