    I think the need for quick results is manufactured by the media. They might regret it if they get their instant numbers though, the slow trickle of results creates a lot of drama.

      We need to know the results like OMG yesterday.

      Remember 2000? We couldn't know the results soon enough (and of course that backfired).

      I think the real issue is that the American public who care want to know who won by bedtime (around midnight).

      Maybe the next amendment should be setting election day on a Saturday. It won't do much for church attendance, but voters will have the time to vote and the luxury to stay up until all of the votes are counted.
