Election Day is almost upon us, folks — it will have come and gone before you read another issue of this newspaper. Like many of you, I regard this election as perhaps the most crucial one of my adult lifetime. And it’s a cliff-hanger!
Some unusual things could happen with this election. One possibility is that the popular vote and the Electoral College vote could diverge. This has only happened four times in our history, most recently just 12 years ago, when George W. Bush lost the popular vote by 543,816 votes, but was determined by the Supreme Court to have won a majority of Electoral College votes.
