Stacey Abrams is requesting donations to support getting every vote counted

Dear xxx,

We know that victory is within our grasp.

There are still thousands of ballots yet to be counted. Thousands of Georgians whose voices have been shouted down by agents of voter suppression.

And after every vote is counted, we believe we are headed for a runoff, which means we will have one more chance to win this election for Stacey Abrams, and for Georgia.

But we need your help to get there.

We need you to chip in $25 to support our legal team today. Our lawyers are not taking their eyes off this process for even a moment.

Letís finish what we started. Are you with us?

All our best,

- Team Abrams

9. You're welcome. I'm on a warpath right now with the voter suppression crap.


I'm in Arizona and this "exact match signature" suppression on Early Ballots is what the holdup is in calling the Senate race between Sinema and McNasty. Early voting ballots in Arizona do not necessarily mean they are cast early because you can drop them off all the way up to election day. In my county alone, 150,000 "early" ballots were dropped at polling sites on Nov. 6.

Early Ballots have to be enclosed in the provided envelope. On the envelope is a tiny space where you have to sign. As we have been averaging 75% of the vote in Arizona being cast with these early ballots, the Rethuglicans in charge in this state have figured out that the signature issue is their "golden ticket" to suppressing the vote.

I have seen periodic reports of this as a major problem in Arizona over the past several years and finally came face-to-face with just what that looks like. I posted an OP on the experience a few days before the election to try to warn others. I just wish I had learned of all this sooner: https://www.democraticunderground.com/100211362850

Dems need to open their eyes to what real voter suppression looks like in all its various forms.
