Stepping back from party and partisanship, consider all of the ups and downs of this election cycle over the last 2 years. In your opinion…
- What went wrong?
- What went right?
- What do you think could be done better?
- What do you think went perfectly?
- What lessons do you hope we as a country learn from this election?
- What, if any, reforms would you advocate for the next election?
- How universal do you think your opinions are? In other words, would you expect non-TS to have the same opinions?
Topics related to the election include, but are not limited to…
- Election security (e.g. poll watching, vote validation, legislation, etc.)
- Electoral college and the mechanics of determining winners
- The role of media (TV news, web news, social media, forums like Reddit, etc.)
- The role of “bottom-up” initiatives (protests, voter outreach, grassroots fundraising, etc.)
- The role of “top-down” initiatives (rallies, political ads, super-PACs, campaign strategizing, debates, etc.)
- Foreign and domestic election interference (e.g. voter fraud, voter suppression, ballot tampering, social engineering / propaganda, “October surprises”, etc.)
- Voting mechanics – i.e. how we vote, laws regulating voting, how votes are tabulated (e.g. first-past-the-post)
- Intangibles, by which I mean standards, customs, traditions, and so on
