Edward B. Foley
This post floats a tentative thought, welcoming reaction to it (but isn't that in part what blogging is for? :-) Elsewhere, I've addressed the current claims that the election might be rigged through modern-day equivalents of old-fashioned ballot-box stuffing. Here, I want to consider the other current claim being made: that the mainstream media is rigging (or attempting to rig) the election, as Trump, Pence, and other supporters of their ticket are claiming.
In the News
Professor Edward Foley was quoted in McClatchy DC in an article about how long it could take Donald Trump to concede the election, if he loses.
“There’s never a winner or loser on election night, it’s only as a matter of law at the time of certification,” Foley said.

Federal Judge Finds Florida Absentee Voting Law Unconstitutional
Over the weekend, U.S. District Judge Mark Walker issued an order finding part of Florida\'s absentee voting law unconstitutional. In granting the plaintiffs\' motion for a preliminary injunction, Judge Walker determined that Florida\'s statutory scheme requiring automatic rejection of absentee ballots with signatures not matching those on file unlawfully disenfranchised voters. The case is Florida Democratic Party v. Detzner.
This case follows another Florida case in which Judge Walker ordered the state to extend the voter registration deadline by a week in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew. That case is Florida Democratic Party v. Scott.
