    If a winner is announced , then all bets will be settled tomorrow?

    "Who will win the 2020 presidential election?" This is the wording of the bet.

    If a winner is announced tomorrow, will betonline and other books pay out ?

    There is no winner until the opponent concedes defeat. The books will try to settle quickly though so they don't have to worry any longer

    So if you think the media "declares" a winner it's official?

    I guess not, just trying to figure out how long our money we wagered on this craziness will be tied up?

    Very high chance this won't be official until the end of December. If 1 of the remaining states officially claims Biden winner he will have 270 and technically win the election. That probably wont happen until next week because they are still counting the ballots. Even then most likely recounts in several states and that can take 10 days. However Trump said he will appeal so It could go to court for weeks. Some books might pay if States declare winner. Some might wait until after all the court hearings.

    Thats not really true. There is no law that states a President has to concede at all. It's just the polite thing to do. If Biden is declared official winner by electors and courts then Trump has to leave the White House but he doesn't ever have to concede.

    Not a law. Just like an elector voting for the same party the voters 'instructed' him/her to vote for is not a law. I read somewhere it's perfectly legal and MAXIMUM fine for voting the opposite is a thousand US Dollars.

    Al Gore rescinded his concession / I don't think it is over until the electoral votes get officially cast.

    Every other thing out of his mouth is a lie for years... I can't believe anything he says? I don't think he had covid, tried to get sympathy.
    Cuz he knew he was going to lose.

    He has been setting up this lie about fraud for months, by everything he did.

    That being said, there is a clear-cut winner voted by the people .
    Joe Biden.

    Will bets get settled today ?
