Sunday Funday: VOTE, VOTE, VOTE Edition

What??? Early voting has been going on for a full week and you haven’t voted yet? What’re you waiting for? 

Seriously, if you have time to vote, do it now. That will relieve you of worrying about possibly missing voting on Election Day itself. There are a couple of ways to vote early. One is by absentee ballot that can be obtained from you county auditor. The other is by going to the auditor’s office during regular business hours and voting there. This is a form of absentee voting so you will have to put you ballot in the secret sleeve and into the envelope. However instead of mailing it to the auditor, you hand it to them.

Plus this is a sure way to check your registration. Details on absentee procedures can be found at the Secretary of State’s website.  

This year, vote for facts, don’t vote for fear.

George Soros survived the Nazis+Soviet communism to become a self-made billionaire+generous advocate for human rights. His emergence as a totemic hate object on the right just sickens me. And yeah, there’s more than a tinge of anti-Semitism in this.

Once again the last thought goes to John Fugelsang:

“Gorsuch was cheating. Kavanaugh was cheating. Voter ID laws are cheating. Russian interference was cheating. Using stolen emails is cheating. Gerrymandering is cheating. An electoral college that was demanded by slaveowners is cheating. And in Georgia, letting the white GOP man stop black ppl from voting for the black Dem woman is some serious WTF weapons-grade cheating.”
