make your vote count


i voted almost 3 weeks ago
i was able to track my ballot from the time it was mailed to me to the time it arrived to the voting office and when it was counted
i know my voted counted

i dropped mine in the mail in one of those blue post office boxes a block away
my wife she took hers to one of those ballot boxes
we have over 30 in our county 
alas in texas they only have one per county
harris county in houston has several million folks for that one ballot box
that is how voter suppression works

it seems that voter suppression that is going on mainly affects the democrats
there are a lot of republicans whose vote is being suppressed along the way

those lines dont discriminate on whose standing in them
granted those lines are not at all of the voting places
its pretty obvious whats going on 

but voting is a funny thing
people take it real serious
they will go through a lot to vote
some have had to stand in the rain and hot weather for hours and hours
they stuck it out and voted

they wanted to make sure their vote counted

if you are going to mail in your ballot
the advice in many states now is 

take it to the voting offices and deposit them
hand carry them to the post office and have them hand stamp it before its mailed

the mail has slowed down in some places
accusations are it is being done on purpose
go vote in person if you have to 

be sure and wear your mask to protect yourself and the poll workers and the other voters

now here in california and some states thanks to the supreme court ruling 
if its postmarked by election day then you have 17 days for it to arrive
some states allow less time

know what the rules are in your state
dont lose your vote
make sure it counts

i hope that when this election is over with 
a bipartisan committee of half democrats and half republicans is formed to correct all of this voter suppression that is going on 
to make our elections so its easier and less restrictive for all folks to vote

be ready
we probably will not know who won for a few days unless biden wins by a huge margin
if he does it will be obvious that first day
