Election Connection: 7 Weeks: 49 Days Until Election Day

Standard

As Jon Lovett and Jon Favreau said last week, it’s time to:

GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER!

What is is your plan to vote?

I was originally going to fill out an absentee ballot and mail it in as soon as humanly possible, but looking at my other choices, I’ve decided that my PLAN is to vote early and in person. There won’t be any lines and there are two early voting polling places very near my home.

No procrastination. No time wasted. No worries about mail sabotage from the current Postmaster General and/or AG Barr.

On October 24, I will be voting early.

If for some reason that doesn’t work out, I can still request a mail in ballot by October 27. [NOTE: This is specific to my state of residence. Check your own deadlines at Vote Save America – Find Your State.

I’m ready to go!

Here are some handy links from my friends at Vote Save America for all of your voting information needs. They are your one stop shop to get out the vote.

Election Connection: 10 Weeks: 71 Days Until the Election

Standard

I would encourage you to watch Day 1 of the RNC Convention from last night, and then rewatch clips from last week’s Democratic Convention. You can find both on C-Span or YouTube.

I would ask you to look critically at the messages being sent out, and ask yourself if this country will survive four more years of a Trump Presidency with its corruption, its lies, and its complete disregard for life.

Then, in seventy-one days (or sooner with early voting), vote as though your life (and the lives of your family and neighbors) depends on it.

Because it does.

I didn’t know that today would be the day, but it was the day. Joe Biden’s running mate will be Senator Kamala Harris! I supported all the names floated out but she was in my top 3, so I’m very happy and ready to get out the vote.

Election Day is in twelve weeks; a mere eighty-four (84) days. Gloves off.

Election Connection: 17 Weeks: Can Donald Trump Win in November?

Standard

Not if we turn out and vote.

We must pay attention to the various voter suppression tactics across the country from now through Election Day.

One way to stay aware is to stay informed. Read this article, Donald Trump Has A Secret Plan To Win (Seriously) by Dan Pfeiffer.

Dan also has a new book out this year on how we can beat Donald Trump and Untrump America.
