Hello, everyone. There are two issues for which I am trying to raise awareness and I hope you will help me spread the word:

1. Many states are allowing no-excuse absentee ballots. If you live in one of these states, please do the following if you haven't.

a. Request your no-excuse absentee ballot now! That should ensure that your ballot will go out as soon as the state starts sending them. This is the best way to keep everyone safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. 1/3

It's very clear that many more Americans will be casting votes by absentee or mail ballots in 2020.

It's also very clear that Trump and Republicans are desperate to stop it and suppress the vote.

It will take some planning and a little more work from us, the voters, but we can beat this and make our votes count.

@Spiderman I will drive people to City Hall myself so they can drop their ballots off if I have to, or Norristown or Media or Doylestown or wherever. (Note to Republicans: You can't drop off other people's ballots here, only your own. So stop lying about "ballot harvesting.") And the last thing I feel like doing is circling City Hall and trying to stay in the correct lane so that I don't end up on Broad Street while waiting to pick people up again.

@TonyStark
I salute the valiant effort. It's only the tip of the iceberg of slush and garbage and disinformation that allows such abuses of power to thrive, but you have to start somewhere.

@TonyStark
Trump should be very pleased with himself that he has inspired legislation for The Protecting Our Democracy Act. We'll just be calling it the Restrain Trump Act soon.

@TonyStark

In fact, the House has a truckload of intelligent legislation already passed but withering on McConnell's desk. With a Democratic majority Senate and President next year, we could have a beautiful wave of legislation that is efficiently moved and passed.

Govern? Who has time for that? Republicans are too busy picking our pockets, packing the courts& destroying our healthcare.

Tony Stark :verified: boosted

This is what governing looks like. Republicans should try it sometime.

An extraordinarily compelling reason to vote for Democrats in November. Of course it won't reach the Senate floor until Moscow Mitch isn't Majority Leader anymore. :registertovote: :voteblue2:

> It is sad that they resort to attacking Joe Biden's son because they can't find anything to use against Joe.

It's sad they have to resort to attacking anyone. politics is weird in that sense. you don't often see people promoting a product by saying the competing product is worse, outside of Apple computer ads, and it's weird when they do it, too. it's a shame a politician can't stand on the basis of their policies. if they have any good ones.

I'm so tired of the grifting and cronyism of this administration. They're put themselves in an elite group accountable to nobody. We need to hold them to account. :voteblue2:

Glenn Kirschner reacts to the lack luster speech Trump made before the U.N.
"He looks like a man who is ready to lose an election."
"What does justice look like in a post-Trump America?"

It's not too early to look forward because having SOMETHING to look forward to is energizing!

@YinzPittsburghers There are enough votes to override Wolf's veto, which means that a lot of Democrats need phone calls right now.
