So I left without voting. Irritates me that Im standing there losing pay from my job just to choose between two ass holes.

A friend of mine was saying in new mexico they have like 20% of the polling places they had in 2012 in some counties. And when the supreme court said they don't have to enforce the VRA anymore, a lot of places in the south were able to just close stuff where they wanted

That's just another way to prevent people from voting. Angry

Then you'll have them all to yourself

Tomorrow is precious, don't ruin it by fouling up today.

It benefits no one if the election results don't reflect the actual opinions of the electorate. Whoever is elected has to actually *lead* the country, (something Trump is incapable of ). There will be some who won't vote, but the turn-out in pre-balloting is massive, (ie in Florida Hispanic voting) and that does not favor Trump.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

This is why I went to early voting. No line and no time off from work.

@DonaldTrump, Patriotism is not honoring your flag no matter what your country/leader does. It's doing whatever it takes to make your country the best it can be as long as its not violent.

There's a bunch of states that don't allow it.

I honestly don't know why.

Do you not know that Democrats are at least equally guilty of gerrymandering?

The Peoples Republic of Maryland is one of the highest gerrymandered states along with NC.

Don't know why you would say that. Angry under-educated lower income voters make up a good chunk of Trump supporters. Much of the youth vote is on college campuses, missing work won't affect their turnout. And the yuppies don't have an issue talking time off from work. Their employers likely encourage it. You go through some serious mental gymnastics to try and deny the obvious ramifications. You argue politics like a fundie argues God.

You confuse "under educated" with income. The average GOP voter makes more money than the average Democrat voter. The average GOP voter might not have a college degree but they have jobs that make money. Plumbers, construction workers, police, laborors etc. I don't have a college degree but I've always had a well paying job. My wife manages a restaurant for 6 figures and she only has a GED. Lots of college graduates out there working at Starbucks because the high paying jobs they want are hard to find.
