Of Course.

Trump: "Why is Biden's name ahead of mine? This is a plot by the socialist Democrats and Antifa to steal the election. Donald clearly comes before Joe in the Dictionary!"

Same. If not for COVID I'd go on Election Day. I've never used mail-in voting, and DO NOT trust the postal service (or trump) at this point.

Mail-in voting is the only option in my state. I will hand deliver it to the ballot drop-off box, though. USPS is not trustworthy right now.

Re: How are you going to vote this year? (2020)

I'm planning on dropping my mail in ballot at the early voting site on the first available day to do so. Monday 10/19. It used to be the weekend before, but FL Republicans realized that black churches bussed everybody to the early voting sites after Sunday service, so they cut the early voting to only ONE weekend before election day.

Assume absentee ballot is the same as the mail in ballot we receive here in WA state. Been doing that route for the last couple of elections and will drop off this year.

I've volunteered for a lot of organizations. Most recently I did some work for a friend who lost in the OH-12 Dem primary.

And, of course I was joking in my original response, apologies if anyone took it seriously. I ALWAYS vote. This year I'll probably vote the same as I have been the past few years, early and "in person" (at the county board of elections.) Since I'm working from home these days I'll just go up some random Tuesday morning in a couple of weeks, when they will probably not be so crowded.

Wife and I got our absentee ballots in the mail yesterday. We will fill them out this weekend and drop them in the ballot drop box at City Hall and be done with it.

Other: mail-in ballot. Utah mails out ballots to all registered voters, so it's not absentee. And I will drop it in a ballot box immediately, rather than send it through the mail.
