As of last week, nearly ⅓ of registered voters have already cast their vote, a historic first, especially given the current worldwide Covid-19 pandemic. In prior years, with mostly in-person voting, we knew the results of an election the same evening. Comparatively in 2020, given the amount of absentee and mail-in ballots, it’s hard to say whether there will be a decisive answer come Wednesday morning. Regardless, given the heightened interest in politics, plenty of us will be glued to our televisions all night as the electorate counts roll in. And it’s also safe to say that it’ll be nerve-wracking, with nearly 70% of Americans citing the upcoming election as a source of stress.
