Zuckerberg: There’s Nothing Illegitimate About Taking ‘Additional Days or Weeks to Make Sure All the Votes Are Counted’

‘What we and the other media need to start doing is preparing the american people that there is nothing illegitimate about this election taking additional days or weeks to make sure all the votes are counted’

EXCERPT:

ZUCKERBERG: "One of the things that I think we and other media need to start doing is preparing the American people that there's nothing illegitimate about this election taking additional days or even weeks to make sure that all the votes are counted. In fact, that might be important to make sure that this is a legitimate and fair election. So we're going to do a bunch of different messaging around that just to make sure that people know that that's normal. So if one of the candidates in any of the races claims victory before the is consensus result, then we're going to add some informational context to that post directly saying that there is there's no consensus result yet. (...) I think this is important because there is unfortunately I I think a heightened risk of civil unrest in the period you know between voting and and a result being called, or after that. I just think we need to be doing everything we can to reduce the chances of violence or civil unrest in the in the wake of this election."
