About ESY

Welcome to Every Second Year. This is a blog about power — the people seeking it and how voters decide who deserves it. 

Specifically, ESY is about the United States House of Representatives — the 435 members who, according to the Constitution “shall be composed of Members chosen every second Year by the People of the several States”. ESY is bare-bones, meaning our focus is on publishing quality content rather than fancy graphics or a pretty website. 

The blog has four parts:

1. Big picture analyses of the 2020 House Race where I use electoral history, trends, and data to understand the overall state of the 2020 election. These posts are labeled “The Big Picture“.

2. Analyses of closely contested contested 2020 races and states. These posts are labeled “2020 Battlegrounds“.

3. Candidate interviews to complement “2020 Battlegrounds” posts. There will be both edited & condensed interviews and extended interviews, which will include the messy, unedited parts.

4.  The District. This is where i’ll post my ideas in progress. Thoughts and things I find interesting but haven’t researched or polished enough for a full post. 

#1 and #2 are the primary focus, with a post from one of these coming every Sunday. #3 and #4 have no regular publication day.
