    The 2020 presidential election is unprecedented. Never has a modern U.S. presidential election take place facing so many uncertanties. Nobody knows what will happen on election night. The pandemic forced many American voters to cast their ballots by mail. Nobody is sure how many of them can arrive on time. No one knows exactly how long it will take different states to count their ballots. People are wondering how many projections can news media make on election night. People don’t even know if we will have a concession speech on election night. Will these uncertainties plunge the country into a constitutional crisis? Possibly, according to Stewart Patrick, director of Program on International Institutions & Global Governance at The Council on Foreign Relations. The days and weeks following the night of the election will be test the strength and resilience of American institutions as the country try to anwser these questions, says Patrick. #PresidentTrump #Voting #Election
