They should go and vote 🗳 they can protest for now 43 days or so they can stand in line to vote 🗳 koolkaryn She should be VP. MORE BULLSHIT. wendid27 It’s a disgrace in these times especially!! It can work perfectly if they want it to! biscottidana We need 'line support' for those voting districts which have long lines to vote on November 3rd. To do this, we need to know where the historically longest voting lines have been and where they are expected to be long in 2020 due to fewer polling places.

Voting: absentee and early has been around for years. Yes, make it a national holiday. Nothing will entice those not willing to vote to go vote. There will always be excuses and complaints. No it's NOT poll tax. LibbyReale Exactly right! So says the “Governor “ BusyBrain_Very P,ease help us! Ludicrous. Does Abrams know what a Poll Tax is?

I agree. Anything that they can do to prevent the Democrats from voting, they do. We need to forge ahead and get them out, November. It’s lies from the left and this shit network Can do their job and stop making these people look like retards🤔 The puppet doesn't know about: 1. Early Voting 2. Polls open early 3. Polls close late 4. Employers must allow employees time to vote It's like watching a caravan of blind ppl fall of a cliff

My freedoms worth it!!!🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 How about: Vice president role should be to assure voting rights and manage FEMA. Why do we not minimally expect that?

Abrams voters have all the time in the world since they don't work so if they can get off their lazy worthless asses to get a joint or riot in the streets they can go vote. that's a load of bull mail-in ballots is pure fraud, a mailman was already caught tossing republican campaign fliers. We're supposed to believe this won't happen to republican ballots. While the left flood the election with altered or false ballots.

Ok, so who is being suppressed? Who is suppressing? Comments are saying it’s Trump and the GOP. Isn’t it the states responsibility to locate polling locations and to get the poll workers? Just wondering. Worked For 100’s Of Years. julibriskman FightToVote GOPVoterSuppression Election2020 JanUnhinged This 1000 times!

She’s gonna be upset when she finds out it takes me less than 5 minutes to vote I hate to say it’s entirely who we are as a nation but I really hope we change There is likely a large swath of Americans who still believe blacks should not have the right to vote.

Democrats dodge abortion fight with plan to keep Hyde AmendmentHouse Democrats will keep a decades-old ban on government funding for abortion in spending bills this year, dodging an election-year clash with Republicans and disappointing liberal lawmakers and activists Weak Some things are worth fighting for, Dems.
