With quite a number of battleground states it can go one way or the other and most likely the election results may even end up a tie.
So, what happens when the election results did end up in a tie? If I can remember correctly from my U.S. history classes, the Constitution states that should the electoral votes do end up in a tie that the decision will be brought up to Congress voting, starting with the House of Representatives (?).
I should’ve done more research but this was just a spur of the moment that i decided to write down this short entry. Even if it did result in a tie I would still think that Obama may win the presidential seat. After alll, if the voting did elevate to Congress it’s most likely that Obama will be the victor. After all, majority of the House of Representatives are Democrats…?
Anyway, I’m not going to make any guessing or predictions or anything like that. All I can say is that we’ll just have to accept and live through the official result of this election. I know, we were all upset with the whole Florida voting recount with their flawed polling systems 8 years ago, but I do hope that we all learned a lesson from that particular day and have better, more efficient polling systems for a more accurate count.
I’m heading to my local polling place when I get home from work today since I live a few blocks away from there. Right now all I can do is pray that this entire country do decide wisely and praying that we do select the right individual for the next President of the United States of America.
