    You want your vote to count?
    Vote in person.

  2. Go to your county recorders office. It is always a polling place. They are always ready. They can verify your registration. They often have several offices. They are always staffed. They never turn away a ballot. They never turn away a voter who gets there BEFORE polls close. I know because I worked at one for years.

    • Ash Roskell Laughable. You do that. Your vote won’t be counted by the deadline. You’ll send the presidency decision to the house where Trump will be elected again.

    • @DK x Mace
      I vote in a state that has an all mail in system. The balllot is tracked through the USPS system. We’re able to track it online like registered mail and confirmation is received when it enters the system and when it is delivered. We can also drop off our ballots.

    • Depends on what state you live in. Florida mail-in ballots have to be mailed. Check your local regs first.

    • @Ash Roskell The only threat at the polls will be SOROS and CLINTONS backed ANTIFA.

    • @Ms Linda
      I can drop mine off directly to the county office, which is close to where I live. I’m out of town now, so I get my ballot mailed to me here and can track it online.

  3. Vote in person…..

  4. Vote in person!

    • @jeck jeck really cause we see are clowns like yourself running around destroying it. Bunch of losers need to eat lead. You are a buffoon

    • Forcing and violence is never okay.
      Given the chance, communities will always defended themselves.
      At the moment, nobody is interested to protect nothing because government takes the choice away.

    • @S R
      Vote by mail, like trump did and still does:) And vote for Harris/Biden;)

    • @John Smith
      And that is GOP’s illusion of choice I mentioned:/ Mindset of idiots.

    • @Ms Linda No, that is not allowed in Florida. We can track it, however. I also plan to photograph it before I send it in. If it has not reached the elections office on election day, I can verify that through the tracking system, show up at the polls and fill out a provisional ballot, and if my mail-in is “lost” or does not arrive in time, my provisional ballot will count as my vote. I would prefer not to go a crowded space like a polling station, so I will opt for the mail-in plan as my first choice.

  5. Yeah we know where is Zuckerberg 300 Millions going

  6. “I got my fingers crossed?????” how comforting

      They’ve got their fingers crossed they can cause so much confusion that they can claim they won.

    • mysteryman2024 | September 8, 2020 at 2:47 PM | Reply

      @Markus Rother First off, it’s the left who is blocking all the bills, that’s why we haven’t received another relief check. Secondly, it’s the left who is trying to steal this election with mail in voting. If you can’t see this you’re either too brainwashed or too dumb to understand what’s happening.

    • mysteryman2024 | September 8, 2020 at 2:52 PM | Reply

      @Ms Linda Funny, because in virtually all comments I’ve ever seen, rational people give thoughtful opinions and make decently supported claims, then anti-Trump people on the left respond by name calling and contributing nothing of substance.
      I do love watching you try to flip the script through, it’s something the left does really well, guess it’s easy when you have no interest in integrity.
      Some common name calling from the left includes “Trumpers”, “Trumpsters”, “Trumpanzees”, “Trumpets”. I’d love to hear examples of name calling from us, if you have any. And no, “leftist” isn’t name calling.
      Please try to keep your reply somewhat based in reality. I know, it’s really hard for you guys, but just try, ok?

    • @mysteryman2024 How can the Democrats block a bill which they themselves has written and brought to the floor? The Reps control the Senate, the White House and the SC – 2 1/2 of the 3 branches of government! And still you are pretending that Democrats are the ones in charge! They are not.
      And still it’s true despite your spinning: There was enough money for the election in the house bill. And it was purposefully blocked by Moscow Mitch.
      And, btw, you want to see some namecalling and insulting by a republican? Have you ever seen the twitter feed of your republican president? Or listened to one of his speeches? Or when he’s talking to reporters who don’t praise him like the submissive underlings and bootlickers at fox?

  7. I will vote in person. Don’t trust anything politicians have to say. That includes the lame stream media.

    • That’s disinformation. The easiest and safest way to vote is to use a drop box. Mail is equally good as long as you’re in a state that allows postmarks up to election day. If not, vote early if you can. Nothing wrong with voting in person either but it’s definitely not the only option! If you need to vote in person and have trouble, at least cast a provisional ballot. It’s your right as an American to do that, and if the count is close, provisional ballots can make the difference. Also the vast majority of mailed-in ballots will NOT be delayed.

      You mean Trump, it’s not the media, the things that come out of Trumps mouth are on live TV or his constant tweeting and can be proven

    I’ll be walking to my local polling site just down the street:)

  9. VOTE AT THE POLLS…..

    • VOTE IN PERSON!!! (IF YOU GO TO THE STORE, YOU CAN VOTE IN PERSON)

    • I see this is the new tactic of the bots and trolls to scare people away from voting at all, since many states have made voting in person very difficult for some people.

    • @GlennC777 let me guess democrat controlled

    • @S R If you can’t see that Trump is a terrible person, an awful leader, and actually a really bad businessman as well than I think it’s you who’s being controlled. He lacks EVERYTHING he would need to be a competent president.

    • @Mike
      Nope:) By mail and blue 2020.

  10. “I’ve got my fingers crossed.”
    Not what you want to hear from a federal employee.

  11. Its called Vote in person with Valid ID !

    • Remember when the leftists told us if your skin is brown then you’re too stupid to acquire a valid ID to vote and that it’s racist. Talk about low expectations 🤡

  12. Vote at the polls if u don’t want your vote lost

    • Jolene Plourde | September 8, 2020 at 4:42 PM | Reply

      Drop boxes are fine

    • @GlennC777 lucky you as ive said ive lost 3 in about a year my point is mileage varies and lost packages aren’t anything new they literally have a page for it

    • @JD100
      Nope:) Vote by mail and vote blue.

    • @Underground Frenchy
      You must be a communist then:/ *Only large scale organized voter fraud for past 30 years was done by GOP:)*

    • IT DOESN’T MATTER !!! The Electoral College vote is what determines the presidential winner. Ask Al Gore or Hilary Clinton, because they won the popular vote by the people but the Electoral College voted for George Bush and Donald Trump so your vote really doesn’t count. The media doesn’t report on this sad truth.

  14. Oh look! Richard Maddow’s BF is blathering on.

    Dr. Fauchi said it’s safe to vote in person. Wear a mask, bring your own pen, and if you want to be extra protected wear gloves.

    • @ApkTheCrazyOne Me too but now that problem is well known and can be dealt with, whereas the bots and trolls are now using it to imply that voting by mail won’t count, pushing people back to the problematic process of voting in person, which many states are making very hard, not to mention pandemic complications, with the intended result that some people just won’t bother. Just encourage everybody to vote, and encourage them to understand their state’s process and decide in advance what’s best, and don’t fall for propaganda, it’s everywhere.

    • ApkTheCrazyOne | September 8, 2020 at 3:20 PM | Reply

      @GlennC777 I mean the same could be said that left wing media activists are saying that it’s simply not safe to vote in person ignoring all the experts they’ve been proping up throughout this pandemic. The concerns of domestic interference is a extremely valid concern given the state to state mail in voter fraud we’ve seen. Not saying that people shouldn’t vote but at the same time we need to hold these ballot harvesters accountable and make sure that every vote is safe and counted.

    • @ApkTheCrazyOne Ballot harvesters? You just pegged my BS meter there I’m afraid. There are serious problems with voting in person, and it’s the media’s job to point that out. There are also problems with the mail, ditto. Each person should consider their options and just make sure they vote. If eligible voter votes, we will be rid of our failure of a president.

    Best advice: show up in person or request an absentee ballot.

  17. Don’t bother watching their “polls”

  18. Im voting in person… trust no one

    • @GlennC777 I noticed you’re copying and pasting your comment over and over lol

    • @J N Yes. Whereas the bots don’t have to, they just say the same misleading thing from a hundred different accounts.

  19. Will the voting workers allow my dog in or does he have to vote by mail?

    • Your dog can’t vote. If he tried, he wouldn’t be issued a ballot. If he attempted to use somebody else’s ballot, his signature wouldn’t match. If he somehow succeeded, he would be subject to imprisonment in dog jail. Fortunately, this sequence of logical difficulties means almost no “fake” votes are actually cast in American elections.

    • mysteryman2024 | September 8, 2020 at 3:44 PM | Reply

      As long as your dog votes democrat, they’ll definitely allow it. But if your dog refuses to parrot the mantra of the narrative and dares to think for himself, then definitely no. Also in that case your dog is a racist, and a white nationalist, and a Nazi. Nazi dog!
      This is literally a perfect description of the thinking of left.

    • @mysteryman2024 No that’s the caricature of the thinking of the left that has deluded the right for decades now. The right has literally rejected every actual source of expertise, leaving blank minds easily filled with anything.

  20. The Safest place to vote, is at the polls if you want your vote to count.
