Two House Races Still Wait For Final Results More Than Two Weeks After Midterms | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Seventeen days since voters went to the polls to cast their ballots in the midterm elections, two U.S. House races remain undeclared.

    Republican John Duarte leads by fewer than 600 votes in California's 13th district against Democrat Adam Gray with 99% of the votes in, according to the Associated Press. In Colorado, incumbent Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert declared victory after her Democratic opponent Adam Frisch conceded last week, but only 550 votes sit between them, triggering a recount and more delayed results.

    Both races that are holding up the final results of a tumultuous midterm election season sit in blue states with lax rules on mail-in ballots, marking a stark contrast between the laws that allow for quick results from some Republican-led states.

    "If every state ran elections like Florida or Texas, we'd know the total House count within 24 hours of the polls closing, or less," Cook Political's Dave Wasserman told the Washington Examiner. "But between late ballot return deadlines and slow ballot processing, CA's results look more like molasses than well-functioning machinery."

    The New York Times election tracker explained that the news outlet stopped updating its House forcast in the California and Colorado House races the day after the election due to the delay in counting mail-in ballots. California still has more than 250,000 uncounted ballots across the state, The Daily Wire reported Thursday.

    "We stopped updating these forecasts at 4 a.m. Eastern time on Wednesday, Nov. 9, as the bulk of the remaining races will be decided by mail ballots that will take days to count. These graphics and estimates will no longer be updated," the Times said.

    Republicans will take control of the House by nine seats, 222-213, if the GOP holds onto both leads in California and Colorado. A nine-seat advantage for Republicans would be the exact opposite of Democrats' margin of victory in the 2020 election, but the GOP's small lead in the House fell short of the expected red wave as Democrats maintained control of the Senate.

Do you consider Election Integrity an issue of some real importance, or just another conspiracy theory interfering with Democratic Socialist political hegemony?
  No, complete access to everyone voting, even in a willy nilly manner, is more important than getting it right by limiting access to those that would commit Voter Fraud.
  Yes, the most inalienable right of real citizens of this Democratic Republic is the Right to Vote, and that right shall remain sacrosanct for perpetuity.
  Again, I don't vote and I don't care.
