    It just shows how much Trump's campaign has given up and are not even trying to win this year's election any more.

    They ought to be doing opposition research on . . . you know, their actual opposition. That four years later they're still obsessed with "her emails" and can not find anything to have a go at Biden for, or "that monster" for symbolises a truly worrying mental breakdown and lack of credibility.

    This will totally ensure Hillary doesn't become president in 2020.

    What stops Georgia from pulling the same stunt next time?

    Speaking theoretically (since the Court didn't put any requirements in its ruling) it could have issue an injunction to discard the system, along with a temporary stay pending proof that the issues plaintiffs had properly and correctly raised had been dealt with, said stay having an expiration date set at a period when there is sufficient time to put in place an alternative.

    Knowing Georgia, they'd kind of fix the problems that exist now and do nothing to deal with new problems as they arise.

    Yes, it's the fact that the problem exists in the first place, and the unfortunately high likelihood of this or a similar problem still existing when the next election is up, that I wanted to highlight. Obv. they can litigate this again, but it's just kinda embarrassing that the election infrastructure in a modern democracy is this bad.

    Three Trump-appointed judges overturned the federal court ruling striking down the one-box-per-county rule in Texas.

    Big surprise there eh? One big sleazeball circlejerk.

    I'm sure that's the case. But that's another thing the courts simply can't do anything about. There has to be a currently justiciable controversy.

    I got my ballot today! It shouldn't have taken this long (I sent in the application on 8/11) but the state rules say they can't be mailed before 30 days of the election (?) Not sure why, when some places have early voting. I'm still mulling whether to send it by mail, or drop it at the Voter Election board...or vote in person.

    They can't even begin processing absentee ballots until election day. And with all the GOP law suits in PA I'm worried the absentee process will screw everything up -- since that's what they want.

    The good news is my son got his new PA voter registration card, and his move from NC didn't get lost between the cracks in our horrible, outdated, complicated and politicized voting process.

    The GOP may have gotten away with ignoring subpoenas in CA, but our PA attorney general seems ready to file law suits for voter intimidation.

    I took my ballot to the Board of Elections office (at the county's administrative offices) the other day. Wanted to make sure it wasn't delayed in the mail. There was an armed city police officer "guarding" the drop box -- but he spent most of his time directing traffic -- drivers were waiting while elderly/disabled folks got dropped off at the curb (not enough handicapped parking).

    Also a couple of Elections officials were checking the backs of envelopes for errors. Apparently some people put their DOB on the line for the day's date and needed a new "official" outer envelope. Or they'd used blue pen or a sharpie instead of the required medium point black pen. Otherwise it was fast and easy. I didn't notice anyone filming things. Just a couple of cars with big Trump signs and flags driving the loop, honking their horns, but that's typical for around here so it's probably not considered "intimidation".


    PS, I only use fine point or needle point pens....so I had to make a special trip to buy a medium point black pen before I could complete my ballot. No idea why the vote-counting computers are calibrated that way in the 21st century, when it doesn't really prevent fraud (any more than using a #2 pencil on SATs did in the 80's). Does anyone have an explanation for this (cue Ominous Gamer)?

    Even in Alabama, they don't think they can win an election in which everyone is allowed to vote.

    If the Democrats win and don't make making voting easier a major priority of their first time, they're a bunch of dipshits.
    Greater than the odds, higher than the stakes
    One shot to change the course, with no room for mistakes
    Bound with stronger will, in the hands of time
    So where's the pawn that turns the tide and keeps the game alive?
