Just going by the news..Let me get this straight. You do not trust mail in through the US Postal Service, nor dropping off your filled out ballot at the county seat or designated drop box location? You get the paranoid award of the night.Why so republican ballots can be dumped?Early in-person voting is the way to go. If you requested a mail in ballot, I would drop it off in person, instead of mailing it in.I think how daily life is affected by Covid depends very much on where you are.You see there it is, Coyote, Covid IS being used as a weapon. People are not locked up in their homes, Life is pretty much normal.Because your questions deflect from what this bill proposes Meister, which is to shorten the time period already in existence. Shorten it AT BOTH ENDS.Coyote, I can't even get an answer from you. I've asked twice.So...again, why propose legislation to SHORTEN it?Covid is the excuse, it's a political weapon being used. I can go to Costco, I can go to a bar.Why SHORTEN it?How much time are you willing to give them to count the ballots? A week? Two Weeks? A month?
Past elections have been counted quickly, now that Trump is in office, the democrats are trying to cause
chaos IMO to muck up the election.
They have done nothing overall for this country other than try and bring down a duly elected president.
The problems aren’t because Trump is in office but because Covid has messed everything up.
So why shorten it?
I can go to the DMV, but I can't go vote in person????????
The problem IS that Trump is in office.
How long should we give them to figure it out with the count?
If the democrats have their way, it will be after Jan 16, 2021.
That date will usher in the real chaos.
I will answer your questions, but they don’t address the issue.
Covid is not an excuse or political weapon, it is a reality, and each state deals with it differently and has different concerns for the safety of its citizens and ensuring a fair election.
Q: how long should we give them?
A: as long as reasonably needed, which would includes starting prior to the date specified in the bill and more than “within 24 hours”.
Social distance and keeping the paws disinfected works great. Nan can go to her hairdresser, people everyday are out and about
taking care of their everyday life. But, voting?????? Oh no, can't do that.
Your answer of the length of time is vague, at best, and could go on for months. It's a non answer.
I will give you my answer for Scott's request. I don't think there should be a 48 hour limit. I answered your question straight
on and not willy nilly. There has to be a cut off...even in this year.
By the way, have they stated how they are going to verify the signatures of millions of ballots?
It's a political game being played because of Trump
People can go and vote at the polls of course. But many people will be afraid to, and for good reason.
But consider some of the logistics involve in maintaining a safe and secure place to vote in a dense urban area for example.
Social distancing (long long lines)
Time needed between voters or at intervals to sanitize.
Room occupancy limits (my polling place is a small church, with the entryway set up with the tables, pollworkers and forms and then about 4 voting booths in another small room beyond).
How many people would you get through before the polls closed? There are many areas that have long lines even in normal times.
As to how long, we’ll, start early and let’s say two weeks max. No one WANTS to delay knowing the results.
As to how to verify signatures? Same way they do now..when I sign for my ballot, my signature is compared to the one in their log book.
