    Default Live voting vs mail in voting

    There has been a lot of debate on this issue over the years.. The reason I started this is because I belong to group on Facebook associated with the town we live in.. That said yesterday a woman posted that she recieved a mail in ballot form that was suppose to go to her neighbor.. Only problem is the neighbor in question moved over ten years ago.. Here in PA our primary has been moved back to June 2nd.. Most of the state has had the lockdowns continued to June 4th.. There has been a big push by the Governor's office to do voting by mail.. You have to think the date of June 4th could have just as easily been June 1st.. Everything they do is for political reasons.. I will as I always have show up to our voting center in person..

    I'm for zero voter suppression. I've mailed my ballot for years. Live vote works well for those with the ability to do so.



    This is not my horse. It's my neighbor's.

    And so it begins..

    Schumer: Vote by Mail ‘Will Be a Very Important Part’ of Next Coronavirus Bill

    https://www.breitbart.com/clips/2020...m2CmpS5VAoTYNA

    On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) stated that vote by mail provisions “will be a very important part of the legislation that we’re going to put forward, and we are going to fight like the devil for it.”

    Host Chris Hayes asked, “[T]he last CARES Act…the big one, it had money for mail-in voting, but there’s no sort of federal requirement that states prepare themselves. It’s a very spotty system. Is that a must-have for Democrats? Is that something that is a kind of like a brightline for Democrats as a priority, to make sure we can have a safe and healthy election?”

    Schumer responded, “It is really important. I don’t underestimate the desire of Republicans to use the COVID crisis to prevent people from voting, particularly poor people, people of color. They’ve done that all along. Here’s a good one, in Alabama, if you want to vote by absentee ballot, you have to have a notary public sign that you did it. … It’s aimed at stopping people of color and poor people from voting. We feel extremely strongly that everyone should be able to vote, that the COVID crisis should not stand in the way of what is the hallmark, the wellspring of America, which is free, fair, and open elections, and that will be a very important part of the legislation that we’re going to put forward, and we are going to fight like the devil for it.”

    Not surprised at all by this. Voter suppression was brought up.

    My honest opinion is to vote live days before the day with limitations on entry’s and create a distancing form of line

    I'll be voting the same why I have for years. Mail in ballot. No social distancing needed. That is unless someone feels absentee ballots aren't acceptable.

    I've said it before. I vote by mail in ballot, for decades now.
    Even the President and his family vote by mail.
    What is the problem with everyday people voting the same way ?

    And on a lighter note concerning the ballots of mail-in voters...Hudson County used to be notorious and legendary for it's tradition of counting the ballots of long dead voters to the point where then Governor Brendan Byrne(74-82) was repeatedly asked about it....Governor Byrne said let me put it to you this way...''I want to be buried in Hudson County,so that I can remain active in politics''....He was a tough old school Irish politician with a quick wit when it came to politics...

    President Donald Trump warned Saturday that Democrats are trying to rig the May 12 special election in California’s 25th congressional district between Republican Mike Garcia and Democrat Christy Smith.

    Democrats won the seat in 2018, but newly-elected Rep. Katie Hill resigned over a sex scandal. National politicians are weighing in, knowing that the outcome could hold lessons about the election in November.
