Guys, in about 100 days is election day. I know, I know, might as well be 100 years, but for reals, in 100 days our long national nightmare could be over. It’s up to you to end it.
And that’s why I’m asking everyone who reads this blog to please check your voter registration again (especially if you are living in a Red State) to make sure that it is up-to-date.
And as long as you are on your state’s Secretary of State web page checking your voter registration, also request an absentee ballot. (UPDATE – The God Save Whatevs people have a tool for requesting absentee ballots from every state.)
Do it today, don’t wait.
Some states are going to start sending out Absentee ballots within the next 40 or say days. (Hi, North Carolina! How are you doin’?) The sooner you get these ballots in your filthy, hippie, paws the less chance that the Republicans will have to eff with your right to vote them out of office.
Pro-tip: check your state ID (driver’s license or whatevs) to see how your official signature looks. Make sure you use the exact same signature when signing your absentee ballot — it is what they will use to either accept or reject your ballot.
We know that The Russian Usurper is doing everything he can to eff with the USPS, so when you do get your ballot complete it and mail it back ASAP. Don’t dilly. The rules in the states about postmark dates are all over the place, don’t take a chance: return your ballot early. (Also, the more the early ballots are counted, the sooner the results will be announced.) — And need I say that Lord Damp Nut is going to scream that the election was rigged if the ballots come in late.
Some good news because I know we need it:
1. This is the rare election not about the economy
2. That said, Trump’s approval rating is really bad
3. A Trump win is still within the margin of error
4. Biden’s advantage in the electoral college is clear
5. This election looks nothing like 2016— Harry Enten, CNN
I’m not bothering with national polls, we’ve been fooled before, and the popular vote is meaningless. We need to organize and treat this election like we are 10-points underwater. Talk/Zoom with everyone you can and get them as organized as you are. Take nothing for granted.
Thanks for all you do! — Tengrain
