Colorado Secretary of State calls on national media to not report results on election night

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) — Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold touts the state’s security when it comes to voting, but Griswold put out a message Thursday that has many on social media scratching their heads.

Griswold is calling on national news to “make no projections on election night” and “announce no election results on election night.

Griswold doesn’t specifically name any news outlets, only calling on “national media networks” to make the pledge. She also said she’s going to ask other elections administrators and voting rights organizations to join her in the request.

Griswold says that this year’s election will be dramatically different, adding that “We need an unprecedented plan from the media for how they will cover an unprecedented election.

It’s not likely, however, that the networks will choose to withhold information. Networks aren’t the official standard for elections results –results are certified by election officials– and data is provided by individual states to the public at the same time that it’s available to journalists. News organizations like the Associated Press typically make projections on who is statistically likely to win a race based on available data from the states.
