CA has early voting so I will probably walk over to a voting station and submit my mail in ballot next weekend.

I wish we had the day off as a National Holiday, every November.
I'm in Australia,we vote on a Saturday and voting is compulsary,you are fined if you dont vote,unless you have a valid reason,although our conservitive party would like to change it.
although you do have to register and a lot of younger gernerations are not registering.

funny thing is the Liberal party,IE "our conservitives",wanting a postal vote om marriage equality,so of course the younger lot had to register to vote"so now a whole younger gerneration are registered and will have to vote in election.

oh yeah and marriage romped in 70%-30%

so it was a win win

bloody idiots

High turnout has historically favored Dems. Hence the Republicans' effective efforts to suppress the vote. Everyone on the left has been hoping demographics are going to be the death knell of Republican power. But traditionally most Latinx and Asian folk don't vote. And among registered voters, their turnout is the lowest. But if they were to vote in greater numbers, I don't think the effect would be as strongly in the favor of Dems as they hope. There are many many conservative Latinx. The evangelicals tend to vote like white evangelicals; whereas African American evangelicals do not. There are many conservative Asian voters as well.

Youth from every background can be counted on to vote in a more liberal way, but they're not voting. It's so hard to predict turnout among younger voters. You hear about enthusiasm and increased registration, but that does not always translate into turnout.

Three weeks. I talked to a guy today a few years older than I am. Lives near me in a red county of a purple state. He's hoping for a big blue wave, he said. It's nice to meet strangers here and find they aren't predictably conservative. He has a history of union membership. The longer I live and observe life under capitalism, the more I think that nothing is more important in creating a decent life and decent communities than our unions.

If the Dems do win the House, I will start making calls in support of anyone but Pelosi for Speaker.
