Presidential elections are typically nerve-wracking affairs, and the usual advice for nail-biters is to trust the system. But maybe not this time. Considering the depths of deceit plumbed by Donald Trump’s adversaries who have attempted unsuccessfully to upend his presidency, there is reason to suspect underhanded efforts are afoot to thwart his re-election. Law-abiding voters should keep a sharp eye on the electoral process to ensure that both the Republican president — and his Democratic opponent Joe Biden receive every legitimate ballot, and not one more.
