Condos Says Vote May be Official After Thanksgiving
Vermonters may have their Thanksgiving turkey before knowing the official results of the Nov. 6 election.
That's the word from Secretary of State Jim Condos, who says he's worried about a delay that could be caused by a lawsuit brought by the U.S. Department of Justice.
The federal agency wants the state to push back until Nov. 16 — ten days after the election — the deadline for overseas and military voters to get their ballots to municipal clerks.
The lawsuit says the delay is needed because a recount in the Progressive gubernatorial primary delayed issuance of some ballots past the Sept. 22 deadline.
Condos says if the delay is granted, it could take until after the Thanksgiving holiday for his office to certify official election results.
