Comments on Election Day (before counting the votes)


I heard reports all week about long lines at the polls during the Early Voting.  For that reason, I decided to wait until Election Day to cast my ballot at the local elementary school.  I was quite surprised to be able to just walk in and vote without any waiting.  I voted for Joe Biden and the entire Democratic ticket.  I feel that Donald Trump is the worst president in the history of this republic.  As early as January he did inform the public of the dangers of the coronavirus.  He said it was just sniffles and would be over by Easter.  Even now he downplays the seriousness of the recurrence of cases of COVID.  There are many other issues where he failed the citizens.  I am not a political person and don't want to spend time writing up his failures.

The counting of votes will be much different this time as so many votes were submitted by mail.  Obviously, if Trump loses he will argue that there were irregularities in the voting process.  I really hope that there will not be any civil unrest after the result is known.

I always curse the Electoral College when I see Trump.  Hillary Clinton in 2016 won the popular vote by 3 million votes but lost in the Electoral College.  I just don't understand why no serious effort was made to abolish it since it is a relic of the early days of our nation.
