Nearly 6,000 Amazon warehouse workers in Bessemer, Alabama, have voted on whether or not to form a union.

2. Ask the NLRB I guess,

they are conducting the election. Biden turfed the Trumpers out, so it doesn't bother me.

3. It was mailed in.

They have to wait for them all to arrive.

At least that's my guess.

4. I guess that could make sense

It was boggling my mind. I was thinking I could count 6,000 votes in a day or two all by myself.

Gawd, if they're waiting for the mail, we may never know!

5. The vote counting process in my union was

That volunteers would break up into groups. The first one took out the inner envelopes holding the secret ballots from the envelopes they were mailed in. The second one took out the ballots. The third unfolded all the ballots and handed them to the people counting and tallying the votes. One group observed to make sure everything was done correctly. If needed the ballots could be recounted.
