HONOLULU, Hawaii (The Adobo Chronicles, Honolulu Bureau) – In the past, Americans living on the West Coast, including Hawaii, already knew who had been elected president long before they could even cast their ballot. Not anymore.
In an unprecedented Memorandum of Agreement (MOU) among all the major cable and news networks, Tuesday’s presidential elections will be called starting with Hawaii, going East. In THAT order.
No election results — official or unofficial — will be broadcast until after the polls close in Hawaii.
So is this what Donald Trump meant when he said at the last debate, “I will keep you in suspense?”
If you live on the East Coast, you can go to bed early on election night. You won’t know who has been elected president until Wednesday morning!
