We might not know the results of the 2020 Presidential Election for days or possibly weeks. That is because many states have different rules for processing their mail-in ballots.  Florida began processing mail-in votes two weeks before the election. 

Sorting mail and counting ballots can be a logistical nightmare.  Here is why:

-        12 states count ballots as they come in.

-        11 states have a buffer period ahead of the election of over two weeks.

-        17 states begin counting less than two weeks before the election.

Needing a birdie on the 18th hole on Sunday at the TimberTech Championship, Darren Clarke safely two-putted from 40 feet to get his first professional win since the 2011 Open Championship and prevent Bernhard Langer from successfully defending his 2019 title. 

“I’ve had a lot of opportunities the last few years, so it’s great to finally win one,” Clarke said. “I wouldn’t be working this hard if I didn’t think I could still win.”

The change is a big win for the Florida cruise industry, which has been shuttered completely since March.  

Cruise stocks rose Friday after the CDC announced it will replace its nearly 8-month old no-sail order with a less restrictive “Conditional Sailing Order.” The no-sail order has been in place since mid-March due to the coronavirus, but will expire on Saturday night and not be extended, the CDC said.…
