The 2015 presidential election was a watershed moment in the history of the country. We were following it very closely because election meetings invariably meant heavy traffic jams. But to discuss the election purely in terms of the traffic it caused would be to trivialize it, so that's not what we are going to do. What we have here is a curated collection of tweets that we picked up through our traffic alert system. They are being preserved here so that someone may stumble on this post in a few years time and reminisce!
