    Drop those ballots off in person people.

    • @T Electronix EXACTLY… But the swamp whisperers supporters hate FACTS… Facts Always Confuse TRump Supporters…

    • @Patrick Tolman Your made in China magacap is getting too tight.

      @Patrick Tolman Really, you just walk up to a box. You don’t wait in line or anything to drop off your mail in ballot at a polling station. But i am sure you in your infinite wisdom knew that right?

      @Daniel Martinez ya I know . My friend dropped his 3 ballots off last week and were going to vote in person November 3rd!

      @Daniel Martinez you flag burning cop killing rioting dumbocrats said you couldn’t go to the polls in person and vote for some LAME reason! Flip flop flip flop just like ChinaBiden and HeelsUpHarris flip flop flip flop

  2. Yeah, No one can trust Dejoy’s USPS. Deliver you ballots in person & vote completely blue. We have until Nov 3rd to dump Donald.Don’t mess this up America.

    If the mail can be controlled imagine what else they can control.

    • @TrumpVirus-19 Instead you will be paying for the imprisonment of the bidens

    • Fun stuff, you need to worry about Presidential Equitable Tolling. Ask a lawyer to explain it to you.

    • @TrumpVirus-19 It’s not going to happen. Trump is lucky if he lives another 5 years. Only 4% make it to 90. Most die between 65 to 85 with most people dying between 75 and 80. Trump, Biden, Pelosi and hundreds of others in the government will all be gone forever in less than 10 years.

    • I bet youtube delete at 9:10 am. Lol

    • I just wonder if when Trump goes to prison, will secret service have to enter prison with him!!! Ex Presidents are assigned 2 agents for 10 years after leaving D.C.

  4. Dropped mine off last night, Colorado.

  5. This is a perfect example of why you should never trust or vote for a republican. You’ll literally be voting against the Constitution, and yourself.

    • @Shawniemarie Moore Oh its True !! My friend is not the type to make that up !! I feel bad for the people of San Fran, once a beautiful city !!

    • Correct. Only the wilfully blind or those incapable of not voting Red due to fixated idealogy eg anti abortion criminally legislated for all (anti choice) as opposed to prolife for individuals (choice) and nothing else matters… only they would be so unaware as to not care about what Trump’s Republican stand for – corrupt self serving authoritarian practices that seek deliberately to deny the will of the people by making it harder.

    • Before we go on about Trump saying vote in person. Mail in voting has always existed. It exists because of the will of the people for choice. Democrats were are also saying vote in person or by mail early. Louis DeJoy as a Trump sychophant and deliberate plant slowing down the mail service is not the will of the people. It is suppression by stealth. The most important message to prevent huge scale voter suppression is right in front of us. A phone campaign should be RINGING all these people NOW because the stealth attack relies on CONFUSION and people not following all the changes brought since by Republican yes Republican appeals courts restricting purposefully late counting, you know oh I got this mail in vote it should get there within 5 days, oh I’ll post it and hope it gets there, oh I never heard maybe they get it today Nov 3, oh.. too late. Wait, why are all the Red fervour smiling… could it be they understand this “stacking” administratively and legislatively is not objective and issue focussed. Its ok to change your vote from Red to Democrat. Biden voters use drop boxes in advance of Nov 3 or vote in advance in person. This election is now about ethics and morality and equity and not living under authoritarian minority rule. Voting is your right. Vote 🌊

    • @Tim P no she didnt.. Even if your imaginary friend did receive all those.. Still can only vote once.. Its not like 6 ballots from the same person will be counted as such. Trump is using peoples ignorance against them and for his own personal gain. If it were true people were receiving all these ballot for dogs and dead people there would be countless videos online showing and talking about them…

    • Totally Right ! GOP CRIMINALS !

  7. One of the first things Biden and Dems must do, is reverse all of the voter suppression obstacles Republicans put into place, and make voting a national holiday, like it is in other countries.

  8. Hourly Reminder : Donald tRump is a weak man’s idea of a strongman!

  9. Louis DeJoy! Remember that name! He’s the tRump clown in charge of the Postal Service that waylaid your vote, slowed down your mail & perhaps didn’t have your medication mailed in the mail & who is busy destroying the once mighty US Postal Service. Louis DeJoy again I repeat!

  10. AMERICANS! It is now too late to rely on your postal system to get your ballot delivered on time! Hand Deliver it to a voting box today. Don’t wait any longer! – just a Canadian watching along

  11. If you are voting for the first time, young or old, I hope you felt that surge of pride and accomplishment like the first time I voted, many years ago.


  13. _“Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds,”_ only worked when America was a democracy.
    Now you have to be your own swift courier.

    I dropped my ballot off yesterday at a ballot box outside of the polling station. I feel a huge load of my shoulders. I was having so much aniexty over this year’s voting. These are scary and crazy times. Please drop off your ballots in person. Please vote. Your vote will count if you drop it off.
    No matter who you are voting for, please stay safe. No matter who you are voting for, make your vote count
    Biden-Harris 2020

  15. Voter suppression in a first world country like the USA is astonishing. It’s the act of a totalitarian state. VOTE IN PERSON OR DELIVER AT DROP BOXES. VOTE BIDEN.

    • @Wilf Fred We were all told to vote inperson, so the election could not be rigged. That was 3 months ago, Donald Trumps words.

  16. They did it on purpose- cut the delivery times in half in critical locations to try and steal the election. Everyone must realize this was done specifically to STEAL the election. And never forget if we win how close we came to losing democracy to a party repeating that “we are not a democracy, we are a republic.”

    • It’s a good thing we were all told to vote inperson, so the election could not be rigged. Donald Trumps words 3 months ago. And we are a “constitutional republic” not a democracy FACT.

  17. I hope people will be willing to stand in line for as long as it may take because the next 4 years will be way longer!

  18. The mail was mostly never on time , long before Trump.

  20. Don’t let anyone google “Tony Bobulinski” it will bury the left!
