The 2020 Election Schedule starts soon


We’re getting close to election season. The Democrats are almost done with their draft for presidential candidates, but don’t be surprised if a few more enter the race. Now it is time to announce the playing schedule, just as the commissioners of MLB, NFL, NHL, NBA, etc. announce the upcoming schedule of their seasons. So, get your scorecards ready as I am pleased to announce the 2020 schedule for U.S. elections, including local and state elections, congressional, and of course, the presidential race. Actually it’s pretty simple, but there are still a few loose-ends remaining (see “To Be Announced” below). Frankly, I do not understand why any state hasn’t announced its primary/caucus date yet, particularly New York. Talk about bad planning.
