Who really knows? Covid-19 kinda chills the entire process. Hell, Biden might get covid-19! THEN what happens? They are already talking about a virtual convention and that too might be entertaining.

Things are, if nothing else, waay different than they have been in the past. Now, for instance, there are no rallies and no meetings. Seems all politicking seems destined for TV and, so far, there doesn't seem to be much of that. Then there are the primaries being set further out. If they keep that one up I also have no idea what the results are going to be.

So, who knows?

There is no reason the remaining primaries can't all be done by mail. I've been mail voting for years, and it's a lot easier than going to the polls. I'll have to mail vote in November, too. We live just outside an incorporated city limits, and because of various different district boundaries we need our own ballot. Not enough of us to have a polling place.

I see Georgia Republicans and Trump have come right out and opposed mail ballots because it will help Democrats. No more BS about "fairness" or "voter fraud".

Mail Voting Devastating to Republicans

Quote:
“The things they had in there were crazy,” Trump said in a Fox News interview last week. “They had things — levels of voting that, if you ever agreed to it, you’d never have a Republican elected in this country again.”


So it's unfair if Republicans lose the election because we don't let them cheat?

In this day and age it is ridiculous to demand that people leave their jobs on a Tuesday, drive god knows how many miles(34 in my case) to show up in person by the f*cking hundred millions to spend five minutes filling out a form.

Because that's the only way Republicans can win.

Automatic voter registration should be a thing, with ballots automatically mailed to everyone of voting age and returnable sample ballots sent to teens not yet old enough to vote for polling and educational purposes.

Voter registration SHOULD NOT BE PARTISAN.

Ballots should include polling on issues of the day, which would give government some idea how the folks they are governing actually feel.

I'd put the Postal Service in charge of it all, handling that kind of sh*t is what they do. Each post office has a counting machine and a live website reporting the numbers as they arrive over a two week period.
I'd make it an annual affair with Maximum Hoopla.
Election Day would be a national holiday where we see the last of the votes counted and the winners announced.

If I was the King Of The World, I'd straighten this sh*t out forthwith.

You are flat out right! The problem is that the Republicans will fight like hell. This one is a real gift to them. They have always wanted to stop people for voting and, this time, they just might get it.

I can, however, hope I am dead wrong about that!

I think even Republicans are going to see that leaving their shelters to vote with all the infected is a bad idea. They are going to be calling for mail ballots as well. I'm somewhat amazed at least the Democratic primaries are not all run by mail. Each Party in each state controls their primary election.

Your faith in the intelligence of the Republicans are somewhat encouraging but I doubt it. I am basing this on the southern states unwilling to start trying to even contain Covid-19 let alone actually admit its not a Democratic hoax. There are a number of Democrats who want to continue with the caucuses! Then there are those who are committed to the "old ways", in both parties. I think there are groups, in both parties, that are not exactly fans of change in ANYTHING!

I know, mean spirited, sorry...............

I was surprised when I got the mail today to see Georgia has sent out request for absentee ballot to vote by mail requests to all registered voters. This one is for the 19 May primaries only.

So we will, at least here in Georgia have vote by mail for the primaries scheduled for 19 May. Upon further reading there was another box I check for Eligibility to receive vote by mail for the rest of the election cycle without another application. wonders be.
