  1. Good Grief a repeat of Bush and Core Presidential voting.stay safe.✌

  2. and the voter suppression continues. What should be asked is how many poll supervisors, or above are requiring employees to “discover” anomalies?

  3. Yeah, my 18yo signature doesn’t look anything like it does today (WA State rejected my 2012 vote in fact)

  4. *_Imagine_* *signing a Covid-19 waiver to attend Donald Trump’s Corona rally. Just to hear about how Covid-19 is a hoax.*

    Once again, *Can’t fix stupid but the hats make it easier to identify.*

    • @The Origional Jayme Dementia Joe Fingers wants our guns,money, mandatory vaccination, mandatory masks, mandatory lockdown! YOU CALL TRUMP A DICTATOR?????????

      @Tara Reade you keep telling yourself that. Like I said, all Trump supporters do is repeat whatever crap he says.

    • @The Origional Jayme You just repeat Dementia Joe! OBAMA WAS THE FIRST CLEAN INTELLIGENT BLACK MAN!

    • The Origional Jayme | October 20, 2020 at 9:15 PM | Reply

      @Tara Reade Trigger much? lmao, I”ve been saying what a disaster Trump was from the time he was running against Clinton LOL! Nice job displaying your racism tho…

    • @The Origional Jayme Do you agree with Biden that Obama was the first clean intelligent black man?

    My mother’s signature changed radicaly when she became ill. It can happen to anyone.

      @John Patrick I think the issue there is “ballot application”. Anyone can conceivably get one, sure. Like anyone can get an application to apply to Harvard. But getting a ballot requires a registered voter. And those have barcodes. I wouldn’t worry too much about applications.

      And even if someone got an actual ballot, that vote wouldn’t count unless they were a registered legal voter. The ballots are computer verified with registered voters on file for address and signature.

    • Don’t let anyone prevent you from exercising your Constitutionally Guaranteed Right to Vote. When you get your ballot, fill out carefully. Then put your ballot in the Inner Secrecy Envelope, and insert in the Outer Declaration Envelope, and sign it. Mail back, AT LEAST 2 WEEKS before Nov. 3rd. OR, Drop Off/deliver in-person at an Authorized County Registrar Office or Drop Box, AT LEAST ONE WEEK before election day. Check your drivers license and try to match your signature before signing the Ballot or Outer envelope. If you Mail-in your Ballot late, you can go to the polls and try to vote. If there’s an indication at the polling place that you’ve requested a Mail-in Ballot, you will be given a provisional ballot which won’t be counted if you’re Mail-in Ballot arrives in time to be counted.

    • Exactly. I never sign my name the same way every single time, sometimes I’m in a hurry.

    • My writing including my signature changes constantly. It’ll change many times within one written letter to someone. My signature isn’t always the same. I have Fibromyalgia and Arthritis.

    • @Jonathan Mol😄😄😄

      I also write poetry.🙂

  6. In my state you can check online to see if your ballot was accepted, usually just days after you drop it off.

    • They send me a notification thru email that my ballot has been accepted and will be counted. Blue right down the line.

    • mrsmrv 420 That’s how we do it in Colorado. We can track our ballots from the day they’re being sent to us, we can track the day it’s delivered to us, and we can follow it all the way through the counting. It’s SO simple here. And SO fail-safe.

    • @Warm Violet Hey, peaches, anybody in that elections office says *_my_* ballot doesn’t count, you’re damned right they’re in for a fight, because I won’t quit until it counts!

      @K. McKee I saw a 30 minute documentary on Colorado mail voting. Colorado’s like the moon landing compared to a stone age society. Why other States can’t just adopt Colorado’s successful voting system is a total mystery. 👍

      What do they mean by ‘accepted’? Do they mean the envelope has been ‘received’ or that it has also passed inspection – are you sure?

    Voter suppression is part of making America great again I suppose.

    • Too bad if you can’t cheat isn’t it?

  8. More efforts to suppress the votes.

  9. Who makes these officials handwriting experts ?

  10. My mom is 93 and frail. Her signature looks like she’s 5 and writing with a crayon. My forging of her signature looks more like her signature.

      Most people’s signatures are somewhat different than when they signed their drivers license at 16.
      That report was disturbing.

    • Exactly why mail in voting should not be allowed!

      @algon44 No, mail-in ballots are more secure and harder to fake. They are mailed to one specific registered voter and have a barcode.
      This signature nonsense is the BS.

    • @algon44 okay that’s ridiculous. Mail in voting had worked for years. We have a pandemic and I wouldn’t allow my mom to go in person voting. There has been very little evidence of fraud. In fact the only fraud I remember is from the Republican party. Most recently, a congressman in CA has put up fake ballot collection boxes. He even put it on social media.

    • Howard ..time for a Court case. Floridians need to push back.
      Otherwise you’re okay with the overwhelming POLITICAL CORRUPTION in the State. I for one and the 2 dozen members of my family may never visit one of our favourite places again. Disgustingly pitiful.

  11. FLORIDA ALWAYS CHEATING ALWAYS (Still 🗳 VOTE lets make a landslide 🌊 🌊 🌊)

    • @Warm Violet You do know Trump does not Qualify to have the representation of a republican. He is the most incompetent president in U.S. history and does not care about Latino’s at all what so ever! he doesn’t even care about his fellow Americans. Biden sent his well wishes to The Trump Family and Trump only thanked him by lie’n & making false accusations about Biden’s character. Trump just wants your vote he did NOTHING for the ppl of Puerto Rico 🇵🇷 (Hurricane Maria) & putting scared children in cages having them sleeping on floors is just out right UN-American.

    • Remember 2000? The Brooks Brothers Riot and the Supreme Court decision (5 to 4) that handed the election to Dumb Dumb and his running mate (real prez) Dr. Evil. Bushy the Unfit lost the popular vote and probably the Electoral College too.

    • @Lolia Dior He didn’t carry the state by a very wide margin the last time.

    • @Grimm Grimm High five! Palm Beach, Biden/Harris!

    • @Lolia Dior 29 electoral votes, baby.

    Reporter: President Trump, do you think you have chance of winning?
    Trump: As long as there are ways to cheat.

    • @Roald Shakleton How is providing more ballot drop boxes a bad thing?

    • Roald Shakleton | October 20, 2020 at 7:36 PM | Reply

      @John Patrick They’re deemed ILLEGAL by the county’s Registrar of Voters. Voting multiple times, as Trump suggested, is also ILLEGAL. Emphasis on ILLEGAL.

    • @Roald Shakleton You still haven’t explained what is wrong about other than an elected official said it’s illegal.
      So, again, what is wrong with more ballot drop off boxes?

    • @John Patrick
      If they aren’t official drop boxes, no one should drop their ballot in one. In all my years of voting, I’ve never seen this kind of nonsense pushed by the GOP. I hope they enjoyed the run while they had it.

    • Roald Shakleton | October 20, 2020 at 9:07 PM | Reply

      @John Patrick Dig deep. Muster all the intelligence that God may or may not have bestowed on you and research the rationale of assigning illegality to a specific action. Don’t be a child always asking, “Why?”.

    The guy in bubble wrap gets the *SMART* prize:
    Bubble wrap insulates AND is waterproof.

    • 4:10 – the guy without a mask gets the smart prize; he won’t get infected because others wear one. thanks.

    • Yeah, bubbles have to be on the inside to insulate… otherwise. The thin backing sheet allows cold air close to the body. With bubble son the inside, the thin backing layer is kept away from the body and heat from the body keeps the little bubbles warm.

    • not to mention….. entertaining.

    So as you get on in age, who has not had a signature malfunction. This just an excuse.

  15. I know Republicans CHEAT! Than they are always blaming everybody else.

    • Yep. And the GOP voter doesn’t want to hear about real Republican corruption. They just like fake Dem corruption like the birthers, Sarah Palin’s fake Death Panels, Jade Helm, Seth Rich conspiracies, Clown Strike Russian propaganda, and slogans like “no corruption. no collusion”.

  16. Don’t be deceived, it can be guaranteed 100% that potus pundits will be submitting bogus STOLEN ballots to create doubt.

  17. Democrats and those who care about America must definitely come and vote for Biden and the Democrats to save the country from the Donald Trump disaster.

  18. This is insane. Vote in person if at all possible.

    My electronic signature is a mess compared to my actual signature! I mean whose isn’t?

    The only ballots that’ll be challenged are the ones with Biden’s name on them.
