Midterms free of feared chaos as voting experts look to 2024
The presidential election is almost here, and as it gets closer, some are asking what the state of the country is. Many are talking about the possibility of chaos. What do we know about that possibility?
What is happening?
Over the past few weeks, there has been a lot of talk about what might happen if something were to happen. People are concerned about what might get in the way of Democrats winning a majority in either the House or the Senate. They aren’t thinking of what might happen if the president’s supporters would be behind a candidate who is going to do things differently.
One of the candidates that’s been mentioned, in particular, is Donald Trump. Trump has raised the specter of violence at the polls, claiming that “this election is going to be watched like you’ve never watched an election before.”
The question is, what is going to happen to make Trump’s supporters feel like that’s actually happening?
Many, including me, are asking what would happen if we were to see, in fact, violence at the polls. We’re not talking about something that would be small and local but something that would potentially be big and national. There have been reports of people getting stabbed after voting. On Election Day four years ago, a man was shot in the head after voting at a polling place in Maryland.
The question is, what is going to happen?
In an ideal world, we would be on the cusp of voting, with the ability to have a president elect. It’s unclear if that will take place — there have been reports that this week’s primary in Mississippi was marred by some of the most unusual voting chaos yet.
