Well, the election is proceeding. As I write this, Electors in all 50 states plus the District of Columbia haven’t met yet, and the outgoing administration is still trying to challenge the state-certified results of the election. What’s going to happen between now and noon on January 20, when the Biden administration will be sworn in? Neither I nor anyone can say with certainty. All I know for sure is that the ugly isn’t behind us. Given the way 2020 has gone, I worry about how it may look. But maybe I’m being too negative! Maybe it’ll be better than I fear.

How do you think it’s going?

Please write a brief reflection in which you explain your reaction to the way the election was (or is still being) conducted. I can’t give you much guidance about exactly what to say, because I want your honest unvarnished reaction to the 2020 presidential election. I trust you’ll have something to write about. Just think about the election and tell me what you’re thinking about it.
