So those letters go through but ballots don't? How do they do that?

46 farking states?

I can't read the article due to paywall... let me guess: Florida, Texas, Arizona and Georgia are the other 4?

As a sidenote, if you run into a postal worker, tell them thanks for their efforts and they're appreciated.  I saw a guy in my neighborhood go all Karen on a delivery person for a letter or something that took longer than usual to arrive.  It wasn't that dude's fault.  He can't bring you something that never made it to him.  Those folks have to absolutely hate their jobs right about now.  And the term 'going postal' does have some significance historically.  Don't taunt the dynamite mailperson.

Those would be the four states that can't read the article due to literacy issues.

Because 90% of mass media is corporate poopies and they're into performative acts uber alles.

/cnn is basically a cartoon network for older, wealthier liberals, to keep them comfy and not feel like they need to act

You're not figuring on the weight. The import of the decision on the ballot is, ipso facto, pro funkum, more weighty. When you've already got a largely overweight population, the cost of their decisions, pound for pound, invokes even more gravitas.

Bear in mind that only 60% of Americans can physically vote at all. You might knock non-voters, but not everyone has access to a forklift or a Chinook.

Did that for the primary here in MN about a week before the actual election.  No muss or fuss; there were two of us voting mid morning that day at a library in a neighboring suburb.  Plan on doing the same for the November election and I did get my sticker that "I voted".

If the post office had to handle every ballot twice, it would less than a single day of their normal workload.

That's what I said. This could actually be a benefit because older people will get their votes stolen. Older people tend to vote Republican. But my dad does plan on voting by mail and for Biden, in Texas.

If I can survive Walmart, I think I can go cast a vote.

In 2012, I lived in Virginia county with a significant minority population. It was a given that the county would vote for Obama. So, to counter that, they reduced the number of voting machines at my precinct. In 2008, there were 10 or 12, something like that. In 2012, there were 3. Three! I think I waited 4 hours to vote, standing the entire time.

Anyway, my point is that I expect this will happen around the country as well, in areas where Republicans control the voting apparatus. Getting to vote in person might not be the slam dunk we all believe it to be.

/DNRT

My blood is fng boiling over this.

Trump & his crony create a nightmare & then warn everyone that nightmare is going to come true when it comes to ballots.

I pray all day, every day that Biden wins, dems take the Senate and hold the house and immediately pass legislation that makes the DOJ an autonomous dept where the house, senate and SCOTUS have to confirm the person (and it must be unanimous), and a president can't install the head anymore.

I know it sounds wrong the way i'm presenting it, but something MUST be done where a president can no longer appoint the head of the DOJ. Same with a lot of other depts too. America is broken the way it currently is and it won't take a generation for f*cking facist Republicans to come back into power. And even that is now based on a prayer because we the people are physically incapable of stopping it.

I'm more frightened now than i've ever been in my life. My stress level rises with each passing day. If trump successfully steals it, I won't know how to deal with it at all. We're poor & can't just up & leave here. ☹☹☹🍋🍋

At this point, I won't be surprised if Barr doesn't state that federal officers will be sent out to every polling place (obviously, even more into minority districts) to deal with making sure that only the 'right' people get a chance to vote.  And also to demand to know what party voters plan to vote for (and if you say Democrat, you are either forcibly removed from the line or arrested on the spot and held until after election day).

They're not done yet, and this actually is endgame.  Sh*t, at this point I wouldn't put it past Barr to actually send officers to arrest former Pres. Obama and his family, along with Biden and Harris.
