Record number of absentee ballots requested in key swing states.

Widespread concern about COVID-19 at polling places has some states making it easier to vote by mail.

More than 2 million requests have been received in Michigan, according to Jake Rollow, a spokesperson for the Michigan Department of State. President Donald Trump, who has amplified baseless theories about the dangers of absentee voting, previously slammed the initiative, saying it was"done illegally," inaccurately claiming the state had mailed every voter a ballot instead of an application for one.

In this Monday, May 18, 2020, file photo, Michigan Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey, R-Clark Lake, speaks in downtown Grand Rapids, Mich. A bill that would allow Michigan clerks to start processing absentee ballots before Election Day is not dead, and the August primary legitimized concerns that officials won't be able to quickly handle a surge of mailed-in ballots during the coronavirus pandemic, Shirkey said.

Personally take your ballot when you get it, and after you fill it out, take it to your Secretary of State office. Drop it in the barrel. Don't mail it.

This is a problem....

Ohio is sending out absentee ballot request forms to every registered voter.

SojournerNow Yes! Because we will vote this MFer out!

A reckoning is coming for the GOP and Donald Trump.

Of course they were. It is the easiest way to rig an election. I got one for my grandfather who has been dead for 12 years and I never even applied for it. Just showed up in the mail.

Imagine my shock! They are spending tons of money pushing it here in Michigan.
