Here's a question to start off the new thread: what time did you finally go to bed?

2:00 EST for me. Stayed up later this year than 4 years ago.

About 11:30. It was clear this wouldn't be over until real early, and regardless of who the President is in the next term, it does no one good if I go to work half asleep.

It was around 3:30 EST for me, and I am going to be paying for that three hours of sleep today.




And since I am awake again, why aren't they calling Nevada, New Mexico, and Iowa yet?

I didn't sleep.

Tom Brokaw said earlier they're not calling another state until Ohio is sorted.

Was a reason given? The other two should be sorted out this morning, right?

I've heard anywhere from 175,000 to 250,000 provisional ballots are outstanding. Kerry would need in excess of 80% of those just to pull even with Bush. I guess nobody wants to call it until those ballots can be counted.

I believe there are under 150K provisional ballots. This is why Kerry will concede this morning, imho.

Kerry's going to concede sometime today. Not sure if it'll be this morning.

Edwards said to give them a day. So do that, and they'll concede this evening.

It isn't by all of the networks. Iowa is another that is a clear win for the President that hasn't been called yet.


I'm not doing the math right now, as I can barely think, but I think this gives the President 285 or 286 Electoral votes.

They said they can't actually count the votes on these until 11/12? Does that mean they also can't tell us how many there are?

I am not sure they do know how many valid provisionals there are. I do however believe it is way less than the numbers first floated by the Democrats.
