As Americans in Nevada — and the rest of the country — toggle between web pages waiting for results to come in for the 2020 election, some social media users are channeling their frustrations into creating images and videos that combine election anxiety with pop culture.
Several memes on Twitter riff on Nevada’s prolonged vote-counting process and the nervousness that comes with waiting for the state to tally its ballots.
What if Nevada counted like Brian McKnight?
