Part of the reason we count as a republic is that we utilize indirect democracy via "a body of citizens entitled to vote" (i.e. the electoral college) as opposed to direct democracy via popular vote, right? I admit I forgot it's not actually involved in a midterm, but your emphasizing the republic aspects of US government whereby we empower others to make decisions on our behalf is what got me thinking about it.

I agree with you about secure, reliable election results being important. I'm glad that's a thing we've repeatedly proven to have, despite ongoing scaremongering to the contrary.
