There were more articles, profiles of all the varied races. Indeed, it was very busy heading up to the vote and in the aftermath. We used to have a few people who would help cover elections, but I did most of it this go-round. That’s how it is these days in newspapers with lower staffing. Even so, I like writing about politics, so no major complaints.
