An expert in the area of election law, Professor Edward Foley was recently interviewed for an article in Newsy titled, “How Americans Came To Expect Election Results On Election Night.”

“Starting, really, after the Civil War, we get this expectation that we can learn the result on election night because usually it’s not too close and you can do that,” he said. “We don’t want a faster result that is a false result. So if it requires an extra two weeks to get a true, accurate result, it’s worth it.”
