We need federal voting standards

The election was over at 11:15 on Nov. 6. Can anyone explain why we had to wait two weeks to learn that it was an electoral landslide (more than half again as many votes as his opponent) our president won, not just a victory? The antics in Florida, shortening early voting, stuffing the ballot with lengthy legislative initiatives, closing voting places in voter’s faces, undersupplying machines and poll workers in Democratic areas, etc., have highlighted easily corrected problems.
