Garrett M. Graff has a full magazine-length booklet for Politico today, illustrated by Daniel Zender, “A Day-by-Day Guide to What Could Happen If This Election Goes Bad”, from a series called “The Friday Cover”, with the subline “Election Experts game out the chaos that could unfold in the minutes, hours and days after the last ballot is cast”, link

Some of the risks are (1) voting is extended (2) false of premature claims of victory (this one is a biggie) (3) Armed groups mobilize (no, far Left, you don’t want to “abolish the police”) (4) The Justice Department intervenes (5) Hackers undermine results (6) Ballots turn up late (7) a counting collapse (8) legitimate fraud is uncovered (8) vote counters are intimidated or attacked (9) Supreme court challenge that stops a count or ultimately decides the election (10) Trump or Biden refuses to accept the legitimacy of the results (11) state or local officials refuse to certify results (12) Electors revolt or are replaced (13) The winner is incapacitated or dies (14) Congress chooses a president (15) Trump refuses to leave office.
