White House Repeats Claim That Delayed Elections Are Normal, ‘How This Is Supposed To Work’

The Biden administration and Democrats alike are continuing to claim that it is completely normal for Tuesday’s midterm election results to be unknown for several days after voters cast their ballots, contributing to growing concerns among Republican voters and election integrity advocates.

During a White House press briefing on Monday, Biden White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre echoed Joe Biden’s previous attempts at normalizing widespread election result delays, despite such an occurrence being almost entirely unseen in modern pre-pandemic American history.

Even as most voters in the United States, for most of their lives, have grown familiar with election results being known on election night, Jean-Pierre informed them that it would be totally okay if that wasn’t the case — claiming that this is how American elections are “supposed to work” now.

“It took two weeks to call every state,” Jean-Pierre said of the highly controversial 2020 election, which tens of millions of Americans believe was rife with evidence of voter fraud and other election irregularities.

“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 ballots, uh, after, pardon me, after the polls close on November 8,” she claimed.

“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 alleged. “That’s how this is supposed to work.”

Biden took to the stage on Wednesday of last week to inform the American people that the results of the November 2022 midterm elections will be unknown for several days after voting takes place and stated his belief that this is how it’s “supposed to work.”

The president pointed to the allegedly increased use of mail-in ballots as the reason for the extended election results, which came to the forefront of the election integrity debate following his own controversial rise to power in 2020.

“We know that more and more ballots are cast by early voting or by mail in America… That means in some cases we won’t know the winner of the election for a few days… That’s how this is supposed to work,” Biden claimed without evidence. 

Despite Biden’s attempt at normalizing this new election phenomenon, many Americans and election experts believe that the increased prevalence of mail-in voting and extended vote counts could potentially lead to fraudulent or otherwise inaccurate election results.
