The Daily Beast is paywall? LOL. No thank you.

And judging from reports from dozens of other cities in dozens of other states, it's beginning to look like whats happening in Vegas is definitely not staying in Vegas. *Fingers crossed*

Trump took a gamble, let's hope he craps out.

The quick Javascript switcher extension in chrome is your friend for around 70% of paywall issues.

Good.

Never assume victory and run up the score. Let's get that number to >99%.

Yes, I know Henry VIII was the villain in the source material.

Like a lot of gambles in Vegas, hoping this is a sure thing.

Sacha Baron Cohen taught us that it's incredibly difficult to get someone to hit you.  No fear at the polls.

Well, I've always just assumed that my mail in ballot gets counted but this is the first tear actually used the tracking system to check. So, thanks for teaching me that I guess?

FTFA: 
"Rita Carrillo explains that her house received an absentee ballot for her father, who has been deceased four years."

But to purge the rolls of dead people constitutes, "Voter Suppression."

Got it.

Trump and casinos.  Did you really think there was another option?

Fight Club taught me that.

It's happening everywhere.  I've seen several interviews with people who stood in line for hours saying they weren't deterred by the wait because they wanted vote and they thought the wait was voter suppression.  They weren't going to allow their vote to be suppressed.

I voted yesterday. Straight Dem. Took less than an hour. Zero issues with Proud Boys or any other Trumphumpers.

And even better, took two non-voters with me.

No, purging the rolls of live, actual people because their name is vaguely similar to a guy who got a felony arrest for possession of marijuana is voter suppression.

But that's perfectly ok with you, right?  Like all Trumphumpers, you're looking for ways to make sure *those* people don't vote.

/Black son will be casting his first vote this year.  It damn sure won't be for the "least racist guy in the room"- Blacks aren't that stupid.

The Heritage Foundation's Voter Fraud Database contained, as of December 2019, 19 cases since 1997 in which one or more individuals were found to have voted or attempted to vote in the name of a deceased voter. Cases of both in-person and absentee fraud were documented.

Do you ever wonder if Republicans are embarrassed that Haiti is calling the USA a shiathole country base on their shiatty response to Covid-19, hurricanes, vote suppression and theft, gerrymandering, almost heriditary offices, and grift, graft and corruption on a scale that makes Trumps the King of Papa and Bébé Docs globally?

Or do Republicans have no shame like their Gilded Beast?

Awesome! Did they vote or are you just bragging that you have friends?

I've talked for years that we have a lot of unrecognized heroes in this country. Like the people that build and maintain our roads and utilities (repairing those utilities in harsh weather conditions), the people that grow and bring us our food, retail our food... This year voters, especially those standing in line for hours not knowing what sort of threats might appear, are heroes. With any luck many infrequent voters will learn this year just how easy it can be and we'll get larger turnouts for years and years now.

(I learned this year how easy early voting can be, had previously imagined there were special rules or circumstances involved. Had friends tell me they always have, with smaller crowds, shorter waits, and more flexibility on when it's done. My location is even considerably closer.)

Haiti is not really dissing the USA. Ils sont trop sages pour cela. But they could. Look at the numbers:

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-512351​0​5

US
deaths 224,339
death rate 68.6 (per million)
total cases 8,568,178

Haiti
deaths 232
rate 2.1 (per million)
total cases 9,026

Can't do math? Can't figure out how counting cases per million affects population size and density?

Too dense to consider Haiti worth emulating?

Here's Canada just in case:

Canada
deaths 9,995
rate 27.0 (deaths per million)
total cases 218,874 (lower than death total in Amurika-ka Trumplandia)

Lazy, lazy trolling these days.  It's like they're not even making an effort.  Nothing like 2016.  Such low effort! SAD!!

i moved to vegas last year from phoenix. my partner and i voted last tuesday in-person at an early polling location since we were nervous about mail-in ballots.

man, it was a night and day difference from arizona. the fact that early in-person voting was an option at all astounded me.  we were already mailed ballots like everyone else.

and you could vote at any county location!!!  the voter information about polling locations was also accurate, imagine that!  and there was ample parking, clearly-marked lines, voter touchscreens combined with secured register output viewing for verification.

no drawing a line between two lines on the ballot, no photo ID, the option to surrender your mail-in ballot or state that you didn't, and loads of people willing to help.

i guess my point is, it feels good to live somewhere with reasonable access to voting after being filmed wait for NG in line to vote in 2016.  like a whole new world.

Also, 'receiving a ballot for a dead person' is not the same as 'casting a ballot for a dead person'.

LV resident.  Dropped off our ballots last week; took five minutes.

Pleasantly surprised with how easy it's been to vote.

Her house received an application for an absentee ballot, or someone already committed fraud.
