On Monday, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre advised Americans that the results of the elections in which they participated would not be known for “a few days.”

Many states have complained that the vote-counting process has lasted considerably longer than it should; nevertheless, some states have shown significantly more efficient at the process.

For example, in 2020, Florida was lauded for using new technology that allowed results to be counted in hours rather than days.

Jean-Pierre warned that tallying the results across the country may take days.

“I also just want to note — as you all know because you guys have covered this these past couple of years in 2022 —it took two weeks to call every state. In modern elections, more and more ballots are being cast in early voting and also by mail. And many states don’t start counting those ballots until after the polls close on November 8.” Pierre said.

“So you heard the president say this the other night, he has been very clear on this as well: We may not know all the winners of elections for a few days. It takes time to count all legitimate ballots in a legal and orderly manner.” She continued.
