Assuming any MetaFilter users are interested in writing posts or comments during voting and counting, how will this bloggie handle what will be its 4th US presidential election?

Seriously, there will obviously be thousands of comments during polling day (or days
), and the vote counting night. Or nights and days.
There's a few election related threads ongoing, and the mods on mod island are currently setting a "very high bar" for new FPPs in this area. As a MEV*, how will MetaFilter work/what's the procedures during the voting and counting phases in relation to (a) starting new FPPs and (b) a prolonged vote and count resulting in several days of the USA figuring out who is the next President?
Bit concerned about a ten thousand comment thread (quite possible) if it's all funneled into one thread. Or trying to follow a myriad of rapidly created new threads if it's at the other extreme and all manner of things kick off at the same time (voting problems, riots, delays, lots and lots of lawyers etc).
