The election of 2017 is over. The votes have been counted, and the results have been certified. The work of governing will go on.

They’re planning for all the things that happen between elections: meetings, caucuses, and conventions that have to be organized, schedules that have to be met, notices that have to published, procedures that have to be followed.
