The election is safe and secure. Don't believe the Republicans lies, don't disenfranchise youself [View all]

Look, I am aware that US elections aren't run 100% perfectly. There are issues and archaic rules that cause problems. But overall, the election is safe and secure. The one person who benefits if you believe it can be easily stolen or compromised is Donald Trump. He wants you to be discouraged and think there is no point in voting because you think he has total power to corrupt the election. He doesn't. He can fuck with it around the margins slightly but otherwise, we are as safe to vote now and to trust the election results as we were in 2008, 2012, fucking 1956, 1992, 2018, whenever. Nothing has changed other than some bluster and empty, vague threats by a con man with his back to the wall. Vote on election day, vote early in person, vote by mail. Just vote and know it will be a free and fair election. Have faith and don't let Trump's lies and threats ever influence or discourage you. That's all he has are mind games and cons.

On to election day and onward to a Biden presidency!
