Election Night Open Thread

Today is not just Election Day at Shakes Manor — it's also Iain's birthday! The last time the election fell on his birthday, Barack Obama was elected president, so let's hope this birthday election delivers an awesome result, too!

Or even just a good one. Anything on the plus side of the spectrum would make the birthday boy very happy, not to mention the rest of us, lol.

Anyway! The point is: I'm going to be spending time away from the news tonight, and, frankly, given that there's nothing I can do now except wait and fret, it's a good thing that there's something else, especially something pleasant, demanding my attention.

So here is a thread for discussion as the returns roll in. Chat about the results, about the ongoing reports of election interference, about your concerns or hopes, and all other things election.
