One of the biggest anxiety-inducing events on any election day is the time spent waiting for the results to be released. More often than not, people go to bed that night still not knowing who won. In an effort to expedite the release of election results, state Rep. Scott White (D-46) has proposed a bill that would allow the tabulation of absentee ballots to begin at 8 a.m. the Monday immediately before a primary or general election. This will ensure a significantly larger pool of results is posted early on.
