Hello fediverse!

New home, same mission.

@NatashaRomanoff It's Russian roulette for all of us. While many people don't take seriously that they could the next one to get sick enough with to die, in my circle of people I know I have a friend who lost a fortysomething brother, an acquaintance who lost both parents, and a colleague who lost three extended family members. My family (not household) member who was hospitalized survived. Why anyone wants to take the chance with Trump is beyond me.

@QueenRamonda @TonyStark I don't have any hard data on this, but my guess is that everyone knows at least one person who faces a life or death situation in this election.

I was so very excited to see my ballot had arrived in the mail today.

The wind was taken right out of my sails, when I immediately realized it was already Saturday afternoon...

For once a reason to look forward to Monday.

Trump will grab at any tiny straw that proves what he is saying so that he can win by cheating. IF trump tries to cheat to win there will be massive protests over it. -"Barr said to have told Trump about investigation into discarded Pennsylvania ballots that president seized on as evidence of widespread fraud" washingtonpost.com/politics/ba

The problem was caused by a “contractor."
Republicans love to privatize everything so they can make more money off of it. They also like contractors because you can cheat them out of decent employee compensation. Democrats would rather use public employees for this stuff.

This locality is run by Republicans, doing things the Republican way. But, somehow it’s the Democrats’ fault.  

Trump wants any mail-in ballots with any sort of irregularities tossed except Trump votes.

Even though it wasn't required for me, I had my ballot notarized. I also put a first class stamp on it so it wouldn't be classified as bulk mail. I didn't have the option to deliver it myself. I voted blue down the line.

A man from South Africa moved onto my street right before the 2016 election. He wasn't eligible to vote then, but when he became a citizen, I helped him register.

He knocked on my door yesterday to announce he is proudly voting in his first election on November 3rd, in person. It's important to him to walk in.

One election won't solve all of our problems, but voting is the most pressing issue we have right now and it is the one that we all need to take part in. Be like my neighbor and

@NatashaRomanoff @TonyStark

All we need is most people participating and I urge people to think outside themselves. This election will mean life or death to many.

@TonyStark When I was volunteering for Democrats during 2016, my absolute favorite thing to do was voter registration. I had to push past my nerves and go stand in front of a grocery store for a couple of hours, asking as many people as possible the phrase that's lodged in my brain: "Are you registered to vote at your current address?" It was so rewarding and people were happy to do it, for the most part.
