Protesters hold signs and flags in front of the U.S. Supreme Court after the 2000 election resulted in a recount as a result of Al Gore winning the popular vote, but George W. Bush winning more electoral votes. The court decided the outcome in favor of Bush. Experts say the likelihood of a split vote this year between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump is unlikely, but the polls are close and it’s not out of the question.

  • Virginia's newly-elected openly transgender state representative: Discrimination is a disqualifier

    Virginia Democrat Danica Roem, the US’s first openly transgender state representative, gave a thank-you speech following the announcement of her win on Tuesday, November 7. She beat Bob Marshall, who had served in Virginia’s House of Delegates since 1992. Marshall introduced a “bathroom bill” earlier in the year, requiring people to use only the restroom that matched their biological sex. The bill was not passed. This video shows Roem’s victory speech at the election night watch party. “To every person who’s ever been singled out, who’s ever been stigmatized, who’s ever been the misfit… This one’s for you,” Roem said to a crowd of cheering supporters.
