US Election Night November 2018: Be Prepared

You need to prepare for the high load on US election night 2018.

You should do load testing and other best practices (like renting additional servers, or using more caching).  I would assume that load will be equal or greater to that on election night 2016 during which time the website was barely responsive. I recall trades taking 30 minutes or longer to execute.

I've also seen the website become unresponsive at other times - notably the AZ Senate special election (2017).
