"Glacially slow"? "excruciatingly slow"? It's too bad that it took a whole 6 hours to get results. The press demands results instantly to meet some deadline. What is more important, accuracy or speed?

If readers didn't know who won the DA race for a week I think our lives could go on. Heck, the nation didn't even come to a standstill with Bush v. Gore where we didn't know for several weeks in what is probably the most important election in the country.
