Kentucky Primary Proves Mail-In Voting Works | The Last Word | MSNBC 1


This week's Kentucky primary set a record in voter participation after the state allowed "no excuses" mail-in voting. Stacey Abrams, former Georgia House Minority Leader and founder of "Fair Fight Action" says "no-excuse" mail-in voting needs to be available nationwide. "We know that the Covid virus is going to ramp up again in the fall and we haven't even made it out of the first wave – that means we have to be ready as a nation to defend our democracy by allowing mail-in voting for every voter who chooses to use it." Aired on 6/25/2020.

  2. You go Stacey. We need what you’re doing in a serious way. Great job.

  3. I’m ready for it all, Mrs. Abrams! Time for a change right away! 💯

  4. Fun fact: The t’rump campaign emailed supporters with instructions on how to vote – wait for it – BY MAIL!

  5. Heck yeah! She’s got DNC chair written all over.

  6. Keep up the crucial, important and good work ms Abrams. After the win in November… I hope you continue with an upgrade of the election system in general and the transparency and accountability of elected politicians.

    I love her!!

  8. Oh bugger! Trump’s not gunna be happy & u know what he does when he’s not happy😳he throws a tantrum & starts screaming obscenities in every direction……How’s he gunna act when he has to leave the WH🙄

    • U got that right… Trump would try to take The Resolute Desk if he thought he could get away with it. He’d think it wasn’t too good for someone lesser than him. Conceited bugger

    • Your grammar and spelling is about as bad as your views on trump.

      @no That would be – ”Your grammar and spelling ‘are’ about as bad as your views on ‘Trump”’, wouldn’t it? Best to get it right before criticizing others!

    • @no are u speaking to me? my “strine is fine”… u obviously aren’t use to the way Aussies speak, we may speak differently (in ur opinion} but that makes neither u right, nor me wrong.

    • @Margaret Nicol nuthin’ worse than an proper ‘English’ expect hey, don’t know nuthin’ ’bout nuthin’

  9. *2020 Under Hawaii’s new vote-by-mail law, there will no longer be traditional polling locations. There will, instead, only be 8 voter service centers statewide for people to vote in-person, same-day register to vote, or perform other necessary voter services. 🏝️ 🗳️ 📮*

    Please please don’t let Poll numbers fool you. You need to go out and vote. Vote by mail by physically going into the booth to help vote Trump out. The only way is for you to go out determined your win for democracy.

  11. When Trump talks about massive voter fraud, you know that is what he has planned. He always accuses the other side of what he has done, is doing or wants to do.

  12. She’s exactly right “we are on the side of Democracy!” I’m an independent, and Trump and the GOP has shown how corrupt they are and how they want to remain in power. I will never vote Republican again for the rest of my life, and it didn’t matter who the Democratic nominee was…Trump remaining in power, including the GOP refusal to remove him, is the cause of the situation we are in now. Trump and the GOP claimed this was just a flu, it was a hoax, it will be gone, we can reopen, don’t need to wear masks. 124k people dead and counting, the infections at 2.3 million and counting every day, 40 million people out of work. Are we winning yet? NOPE, Vote Blue/Green across the board from local state to federal. WE THE PEOPLE are the boss, if the people in office now cannot do their jobs…WE can elect others to do it for us!

    • @Laura Ly
      You say it like it’s a bad thing.

    • @Laura Ly I voted for every winning president for the past 30 years EXCEPT CON MAN Trump, you’re a troll…how would you know? Oh thats right you assume…

    • @hankakah assuming… you voted as you say, that makes 5 times for Democratic presidential candidates and twice for Republican Bush Jr. (who happened to be a neocon puppet that destroyed Iraq on behalf of our “biggest ally”). Never mind local elections. Still doesn’t change my original point that someone who says they will never vote for anybody who’s Republican must have probably never expected to find among Republicans anyone “worthy” of their vote. It’s called logic even if there’s an element of assuming involved. You simply sound like the folk NPR manages to find with similar bios, but the more they talk the more it becomes apparent they never thought kindly of Republicans or their party. BTW you yourself throw out accusations very easily, a-s-s-u-m-i-n-g that the reason everyone of them who doesn’t want to topple Trump must be motivated solely or at least primarily by corruption and hunger for brute power. Not a possibility that they may see the alternative more disastrous for America. You assume only that they must be governed by the most evil corrupt egotism. So don’t write to me about assumptions.

    • I voted for both Bushes , one twice, and why should I have to justify my vote to you? FU!!!

      @Laura Ly  Beyond help. You make think I’m narrow minded but I read European, Japanese, American, Brazilian, English and Australian news and know better than to argue with you.

      @Michael Mccluskey Are you a silly little man….? L.O.L., you are stupid!

      @pat comerford Is it racist for our president to want border security, to deport dangerous illegals, to want to make illegal immigrants pay a fine and wait in line behind others who are doing it right?

      @Michael Mccluskey A silly question from a silly little man!🤣🤣🤣

      @pat comerford you obviously can’t communicate like a normal human being… you silly little devil… I felt embarrassed and stupid just typing that, you’ve got a talent.

      @Michael Mccluskey 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

  14. Of course it does. In Germany we have been doing it fo decades. No problem.

  15. Impressive woman.

  16. They are talking about voter suppression openly – like, it’s not a violation of rights… What a democracy 👍.

  17. She’d rip Pence to shreds in a debate. That is, if “mother” lets him be in the same room with her. No amount of his squinting and head shaking can wave him.

      Lol I would love to watch that debate… right after the Trump Biden debate that Dems are afraid of…

    • ​@Michael Mccluskey LOL… Who’s afraid? Biden’s got a secret weapon for the debates… a small ramp and a glass of water. Dementia Donnie has a hard enough time grasping reality to have a grasp on the issues… maybe if he used both hands like the post stroke water glass display. That family history of dementia that Dementia Donnie has is really showing from the hilarious the the oranges of the investigation to anominus, talleraded, premedication, diversary, Ulucious Grant, the countries of Tanzaynia, Nambia, Button and Nipple, United Shaytes (that’s the short list for his short bus sick-o-fants)

      Dementia Donnie is not just an embarrassment of riches for displays of mental disabilities… he’s also just an embarrassment.

      Please enjoy a very small sampling of Dementia Donnie’s “best” addled a-brain words.

      I know your Dementia Donnie rectal echo chamber has great acoustics but when and if you can pull your head out, you’ll find he’s not the bigly genius he claims.

      Like you I bigly can’t wait. Unfortunately by election night after Donnie “leads”/bumblefucks us to 25% unemployment, a 30% GDP decline, $5.3T added to the National Debt and 200+K Covid deaths, the debates won’t be necessary. Biden will have achieved a bigly triple digit lead over Donnie in every state.

      @Suomy Nona this is the first time in three months that a Dem made an attempt at debating…. good effort. So I watched your videos and yes its no surprise to me that Trump is not a seasoned politician nor a scholar… however many of those short clips a quick mishaps after an hour plus long speach. I don’t believe I have seen a biden speach longer then 30 minutes. And generally Bidens mishaps are much worse then Trumps… not to mention that Biden is extremely racist and just plane mean to some Americans… Trump insults people yes, Biden wants to physically fight people… I guess you and I will both see who is a stronger debater when Trump and Biden face off…. If Biden shows up…

    • Michael Mccluskey | June 27, 2020 at 4:58 PM | Reply

      @Suomy Nona also it wasnt post strok, it was post 600 salutes to the graduating class…. if you actually watched the entire thing you would know that….

  18. Stacy Abrams DOING what MITCH MCCONNELL absolutely REFUSES to do, PROTECT THE ELECTION.

  19. This is the only way the reScambliCons win. By many forms of voting suppression.

    I wish I had an American vote right now. Trump is a danger to the whole world.
