10. I think this demonstrates how ineffectively federal law seems to mesh with
state law. I mean it is absolutely absurd that you have mechanisms in several states to challenge the election, where in order to reach a conclusion the deadline set by federal law has to be bypassed. - Fair enough there is a mechanism to challenge but that occurs in the partisan setting of Congress where the result is almost assured anyway. So the will of the states and of the voters can easily count for nothing. It's ridiculous.
