Trump doesn’t need to accept a Biden win especially when the electors haven’t voted yet.  The electors are scheduled to cast their votes on December 14th which is the first Monday after the second Wednesday in December.  It is only after that vote and the President of the Senate opening the voting certificates and counting them that a true winner can be announced — providing, of course, that there is someone with a majority.  Otherwise, the winner will be selected by the House of Representatives and they have until March 4th 2021 to select a winner.

Regarding the Nevada service-members issue, where they vote does matter and the constitution does not mention where service-member votes should be cast.  In my opinion, it should be the state where they live.  This becomes a problem when service-members are living overseas and don’t have an established residency in any state — which state should their vote be counted?  If one state is lacking in a couple thousand votes, counting service-members in that state can flip the results for that state.  Should service-members living abroad be allowed to vote?  The US citizens living in Puerto Rico, the US citizens living in the US Virgin Islands, and US citizens living in Guam are ineligible to vote for the President.  However, if they move to one of the states or DC they can suddenly vote. A person currently living in Puerto Rico moving to Georgia can legally vote in Georgia.  Why should that be any different for people in the military living abroad?

The American population are realising that their vote literally doesn't matter.  Less than 550 people actually get to choose their president, and the rest of them merely select a 'preference' and frankly they are lucky if their vote is even counted - it's just a formality after-all.

Even worse, there are brainwashed people like the above who actually defend the erosion of democracy.  Funnily enough, many of these shills didn't seem to have an issue when this broken system was used (alongside foreign interference) to elect Trump, or Bush before that.  As soon as its a Democrat who has won and humiliated their clown-in-chief, suddenly they don't like the system any more.  

Wake up America.

Thank you for admitting that the only thing that matters is the vote of the electors.  Tragic but true.

The USA is not a democracy.  It's a representative republic. Representative s are hired through an election process from citizens that share their same views to vote on the day-to-day business items.  

In the case of the Presidential election, each state assigns electors that will be picked depending on the popular vote of their state.  If Biden wins the popular vote for the entire state, that state will send the appropriate number of electors sworn to cast their votes for Biden on December 14.  If Trump wins the popular vote in the state, then a different set of electors will be sent to cast their votes for Trump. 

The electors are members of their respective parties so they usually vote for whomever they swore they will vote.  But it is possible and it has happened many times before, an elector casts an “unfaithful vote.”  It has never changed the outcome of an election but if enough of them do cast unfaithful votes, then the outcome could be different and the Presumptive President Elect (currently Biden) will not be promoted to President Elect.  Since it’s not possible to predict the faithfulness of the electors, I cannot state any particular person has won until after the December 14 votes are counted by the President of the Senate.

Well said.  The US political process is not democratic, and your vote is basically a platitude - a con to make you think you have a say. 

The election depends entirely on the will of the electors, not the population.  The electors hold the power and it is only due to precedent and goodwill that they choose who they are asked to choose.  In this sense, it is more of an oligarchy than a republic.  Republics can be democratic, whereas the US isn't.

Who the American population vote for isn't directly relevant.  Most Americans have never even met someone who can cast a meaningful vote - that's how rare a privilege it is.

It is clear that Trump has lost the election in terms of votes from ordinary people.  In most countries, that matters.  In the USA, it doesn't.

It's an excellent demonstration of the profound flaws in the US political system.

You're right. The American system has been shown to be perfect and not at all like a circus.
