The Uncertainty of a Post-Election Transition of Power

The Uncertainty of a Post-Election Transition of Power

Many hope that on November 2, 2020, American citizens will utilize the power of their vote to elect a new Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to become the new President and Vice President of the United States, ushering in the process of healing the rifts present in our nation. Though the result of the coming election is not a foregone conclusion, there is one thing that remains a persistent concern: a peaceful transition of power is not an absolute certainty.

Many speculate that President Trump's attacks on the efficacy of mail-in ballots and his reluctance to commit to a peaceful transfer of power in the event he loses will challenge ambiguities and loopholes within the Constitution. If the President insists that the election was invalid or rigged and uses the powers afforded to his office to refute the results, the country could be at a standstill for weeks and even months, as officials try to sort through the legalities of what to do next.
