I hope at least 85% of those are Democrat voting people.

They all appear to be wearing masks, so that's an encouraging sign.

High turnout is typically good news for Dems.

A bunch of people saying they're willing to stand in line for hours because they dont trust Trump's meddling crony at usps definitely bodes well.

Virginia is polling heavily in Biden's favor.  Hillary won it by 5 points in 2016, Biden is polling at up by as much as 15 in some polls.
 
2020-09-18 11:18:19 AM  
Hope, trifle me not.
Please, Hope, may I have some more.
Landslide for the win.

Came here to say exactly this. The fanatic Trump voter wouldn't have a mask on.

I'm going to do the same damn thing.  I'm in California, where we can ALL vote by mail, I'm gonna mask the fark up and go do my ballot.

I want the Dotard to get reports from ALL OVER the country showing a shiatload of people willingly standing in line, masked up and social distancing, to place their votes in person.

I want his election night to be a combination of Sad Donald walking from Marine One after his shiat-small rally and Sad Donald betting booed loudly at a baseball game.

Followed by Scared Donald being hit with a massive coronary.

I live in CA too. You can fill out your ballot at home and drop it off at any polling place instead of mailing it in. That's what I'm doing this year.

I should really keep an eye on Fark comment threads for good tweets so I can post them with headlines and boost my greenlight count

So much this.

I want this election to be a landslide, the likes of which history has never seen.  And I want there to be no doubt whatsoever how much of this country farking HATES Trump's stinking guts.

It probably won't be so triumphant.  But I can dream, can't I?
 
2020-09-18 12:02:15 PM  
Wait until Republicans whine about voter suppression when they're asked to wear a mask.

"Please sir, can you avoid killing people while you're in the building."

To which he cried, "stop oppressing my rights to murder people!"

I'm in NC and have confirmed that my mail in ballot has been accepted by the election board.

Way to go Virginians!
 
2020-09-18 12:02:31 PM  
Sure, vote early they said... avoid the lines they said...

Just kidding, this is awesome!

I already have the early voting date for Kansas marked on my calendar

It would be awesome if Dems overwhelmingly vote early and Repubs decide to risk the mail and then their ballots get delayed :)
 
2020-09-18 12:02:49 PM  
Real Americans cannot wait to vote for Donald Trump again, so they are lining up to do it as soon as possible! #Trum2020Landslide #KAG #MAGA #MUGU

/This is what Trumpers actually believe.

Yes. Yes you should.

Because if this was just a comment in another thread, I wouldn't have seen it. Instead, I get a little good news on a Friday.

Your implication that people shouldn't know something because they haven't read every comment in every thread... think about that for a second.

A line stretching as far as the eye can see and not a single red hat to be found? Giggity!
 
2020-09-18 12:07:23 PM  
Fairfax is typically very blue leaning, yes?
 
2020-09-18 12:07:26 PM  
High turnout is generally good for Democrats, but we won't know for a while how much of this is just pulled forward.

So go vote.
 
2020-09-18 12:07:49 PM  

WTFDYW: I hope at least 85% of those are Democrat voting people.


Fairfax used to be republican... not full on derp VA though. These days it leans pretty solid Dem. Probably not 85 percent though.

Active and upcoming early in-person voting dates by state. No matter how you do it, VOTE.

Fairfax county is the master bedroom of the Deep State.  Trump is not popular around here.  This is a very good sign.

They're showing the long lines in Va Beach on TV right now. It's insane. And I'm here for it.
 
2020-09-18 12:09:17 PM  
I can see the excuses already. These votes shouldn't count. This is way too early to make up your mind about a candidate. These people would all be voting for Trump if only they knew what was coming out in the next few weeks. Someone will claim that they voted early for Biden but changed their mind afterwards and wanted to vote for Trump. Trump is going to try to use this as an excuse to stop early voting.

Please report back with your redhat saturation levels

Anyone who is able should vote in person.  I don't think they're gonna count mail-in ballots.  At least not all of them everywhere.

Ohio is mailing Citizens Overseas absentee ballots today.  I've had it marked on my calendar for months.  It's going to be a long, long week waiting for it to cross the Atlantic, but I guarantee that once I do have it in my grubby little hands it'll be in the mail and on its way back across the Atlantic before the next sunrise.

Oh, Va. Beach has an infestation, complete with lifted pickups with full-size confederate flags in the bed. Didn't see any red hats in line, though. And everyone was wearing a mask.

You already received yours AND sent it back?  WTF.  We requested our ballot back in July.  Have yet to receive it, so we called this week and were told we should receive by the end of the month.  I'm not feeling very confident right now, knowing that ballots started mailing out on 4 sep.

I'm also in California, and my county has been 100% vote by mail for the last several years. And yeah, you can drop it in the mail, or drop it into any of a number of county election office ballot drop boxes around town, or drop it off an an election office. If you insist on voting "in person," you can show up (on Election Day or before) to a voting office and fill out your ballot there and hand it to them, but it's the same ballot as the one that comes in the mail.

Yeah, Fairfax county will be deep blue.

Good job, Virginians.  My wife and I live in the sticks now so we'll just vote in person on election day.

fark Trump.

it's Fairfax county, a mix of government employees, Young hip tech workers who can't afford DC,   immigrants from India/Pakistan come to work for tech companies and defense contractors, Mexican and Salvadoran Immigrants, and Vietnamese folks from the 1970's emigration.   So, closer to 100%

It's just one location per county right now. Fairfax is huge. I'll likely wait till October when my local branch is open. It's over an hour drive to the county branch.

arrested and found guilty for numerous felonies. The last I saw of him was at his sentencing. He wearing an orange jumpsuit and matching bracelets.

Fixed that for you.
