In less than a week, election day in the United States of America will be here. But odds are Americans across the nation might not know the official outcome immediately on November 3 when they go to sleep; in fact, the official results might not be known for days, weeks, maybe even a month later. That is due to an anticipated influx of absentee and vote-by-mail ballots expected to arrive at the last minute. And, of course, there are also the seeds of doubt planted in some voters’ minds about the legitimacy of certain voting methods, from which has sprouted hundreds of lawsuits still in process.

All of these are just a few examples from this challenging year. And that is part of the reason this federal election is so important. Who you vote for will directly impact you in ways that you might not even realize.
