  •  Well, except that (0+ / 0-)

    ...all the counties and cities in VA have R-majority Electoral Boards that will be doing the recount, because we have an R governor right now.  When it comes down to doing the hand-count of the undervoted optically scanned ballots, there will be one R and one D election official reviewing the ballots, and they have to agree on how a given ballot was voted, or that ballot gets sent on to the three-judge panel (mostly picked by R governors)overseeing the whole process.

    If anything, there is some concern that Rs might underhandedly influence the recount, because they are in charge of running it.  Rs might be able to tip the scales their way on some aspects of the recount, but Ds cannot, because we don't control anything about it, we just have some safeguards at some points in the process.

    The states must be abolished.
