This election has been unlike any other because of the pandemic. That doesn’t change a simple fact: we must count every vote. Our ability to protect the environment, climate, and social justice rests on our democracy’s health. With more mail-in ballots submitted than ever before, it will take a bit longer to count all those votes and certify a winner — and that’s ok. This is democracy!
The day after the election, there were 50,000+ unreturned Kansas mail-in ballots that have until Friday to arrive in elections’ offices. This could have an impact on close down ballot races in our state. To guarantee a fair election we must count every vote.
