United States Studies Centre CEO Simon Jackman told Sky News that if US presidential election results are not clear on the night of the election, there will be room for candidates to “make mischief” with results by challenging the validity of postal votes. “I go back to the 2000’s cycle … lawyers being parachuted into Florida to slow down that vote count, to question every ballot as it came in,” Professor Jackman told Sky News. “Republicans do very well with in-person voting on the day, other forms of voting perhaps lean more Democratic and the result turns on legal efforts to count or not count, to exclude or not exclude those other ballots.”
