I get so tired every Election Day That we hear that in some states that there arent enough machines in certain precincts. Therefore, the voting lines are extremely long and voters must wait up to a very long time to vote.
States know by past turnouts what to expect in voter turnout.
But, Republican Secretaries of State seem to always be surprised by big turnouts in democratic areas. Not enough machines. Machines that are broken, etc.etc.
We know they will do it again.
So, are we being proactive?
We should have Dem state party officials and attorneys on top of this now.
Insist on knowing how many machines have been allocated per precinct.
Insist on knowing when they will be brought to each polling place
Insist that they all have been tested BEFORE Election Day.
Invite media members to go along with your attorneys when asking these questions.
Ask the media to do stories showing all of the problems in past elections in certain precincts.
Im tired of complaining about this type of voter suppression on Election Day, arent you?
Lets try to stop those Republican efforts in advance.
I know that there are many other types of voting suppression things besides lack of machines.
But Having enough voting machines is one thing that we can try to make happen in advance.
Anyone know When that ruling is expected?
140 days from today, we will vote in a new Dem President and Dem controlled Senate and Dem controlled state legislatures all across the country.
So, keep the faith, keep registering new voters and look forward to a new American sanity.
That headline is something I thought Id never write.
But what they did deserves some positive reinforcement and thanks from us progressives.
Gorsuch, especially, stunned the world.
What he did will help save countless numbers of jobs and careers for LGBTQ people.
I blast him and others when they support terrible things.
So, I feel its only right to praise decisions like this one.
He didnt have to do this.
Conservatives, especially Evangelical ones, now hate him.
So, thank you Justice Gorsuch and CJ Roberts for doing the correct thing today.
I miss their voices.
