For Michael Reinhart, a 52-year-old truck driver, and his wife, Carolyn, a 54-year-old training manager at McDonald's, voting this year is about their 11 grandchildren and getting schools opened back up.

Specifically, they're in favor of getting the schools opened, right now, at the start of the second wave. They're voting, so you'd better too.

My brother says he's voting in person because Trump told him to. I told him that I completely support his right to stand in line for hours in subzero temperatures to vote for an illiterate criminal from New York City.

I'm seeing a lot of trump billboards here in TX... which actually gives me some hope, the repubs have never had to do any advertising here in the past because TX has always been a freebie for the repubs.

Theyre actually having to fight for Texas!
I mean sure, they'll still win Texas, but this time they actually have to fight for it, thats how bad theyre doing.

I love this, and I love that high turnout in the past has favored Democrats. But truthfully, I'm still petrified that somehow, one way or another, the Pre-Covid prediction I made of Trump losing the popular vote by 10 million and still winning the Electoral College will be right. Early voting in my State starts tomorrow, I'll be there.

These must be Democrats.

1. They are social distancing.
2. Nobody has decided that they can use the other path because there is no rule against it  and it is for losers who don't want to get ahead.

If an area is solid R and remains so then that would indicate depressed voter enthusiasm specifically among republicans. If R areas are slow voting and mixed and D leaning counties are out in numbers it just looks horrible for the Rs

Thanks to the electoral college Russia only needs to change a few thousand votes in a few areas to make a difference. Not like they would be able to access voter counts in several swing states with treasonous republican government officials that turn a blind eye to election security, they'd have to have some like lowly skilled hackers on their payroll to pull that off.

1: Where the hell are Bernie, AOC and the squad, and question 2, do you think maybe it intentional and better that they're not out there imploring their supporters to vote Biden? Are they exhorting their supporters to vote Biden through Hard Left leaning channels I'm not in on? Are they being asked to step back?

We're having noisy, honking caravans with people yelling "VOTE!" over loudspeakers.

... in a Los Angeles beach city in Ted Lieu's district which is "new-denim" blue. Massive turnout is critical, because we don't know every place that Trump or the GOP has corrupted. It's disgusting that the USPS was compromised in broad daylight.

Bernie and AOC are both publicly and openingly imploring all their supporters to vote Biden and detailing why it is much better than staying at home or protest voting.

Trump wins DC with 80% of the vote, while many precincts report negative vote totals for Biden. If the Supreme Court agrees with, you know, everyone, that there was massive interference and gives DC to the Dems, there is a 269-269 tie. In any case, the city burns.

Possibly fewer staff due to COVID, along with other slowdowns due to social distancing reduced overall capacity.


Adding to this:

In Virginia there are often long lines on the first three days and then it quietens down. I went in three weeks after they'd started, and after they'd opened up satellite offices, and the wait was an hour. I know folks who went in a week later and the lines were still an hour, at 8am. They only open at 8. Over a month into early voting and people are queuing in long lines before the polling station is even open.

Plus AOC had the Twitch Among Us livestream that was pretty much a GOTV directed to youth.
As far as media appearances, I can't say. But that they haven't been out doing rallies and such, well there's a pandemic going on plus ya know, a lot of shiat going down in DC.
