How are you surviving the national election debate in your workplace?

Several weeks ago an eXtension (extension.org) colleague ended his online meeting by encouraging everyone to vote. Several attending responded they didn’t know how they would vote. The leader of the meeting obviously knew how he was going to vote, but was very civil---didn’t get baited into talking about the candidates.
