The state of our democracy?

Is our democracy alive and flourishing?

Through all the attacks and assaults upon our freedoms and our institutions, we were assured that we would always have the votes to change everything in the next election. The right to vote was our saving grace.

But now, doubt has been cast upon the most basic right in a democracy, the right to vote.

People are not sure if their votes will be counted. Maybe the Post Office will be sabotaged? Maybe the in-person voting will be suppressed?

Maybe none of this will happen? But just the idea that our right to vote is being challenged is disturbing to many citizens.

How would you rate the present state of our democracy?
