I'm grateful for all the election workers (county employees in this state) who are running ballots through the counting machines and reporting the results. In my county there was a flood last night in the room where the ballots were, and they had to move everything (no ballots got wet), and they are cheerfully continuing to count. Some ballot measures are not yet decided; the margins are narrower than the remaining uncounted ballots. But even if that were not true, it's important that every ballot be counted.
