RECAPPING: @POTUS Thursday issued a series of tweets urging voters to mail-in their ballots & then go to their polling places "to see whether or not your Mail In Vote has been Tabulated (Counted)"

@TwitterSafety later marked 2 of the tweets...

1/13 ImageImageImage
.@TwitterSafety explained its aim was "to prevent people from sharing advice about voting twice, which may be illegal"

It also explained "laws regarding the invalidation of mail-in ballots when individuals choose to vote in person are complex &vary significantly by state"

2/13
So what does happen? We reached out to officials helping coordinate #Election2020 security for the states, who agreed that in many states, polling places should have a record of whether a mail-in ballot was requested & whether it had been returned

Hey, did you know you can access aggregate voter data from Florida's elections? dos.myflorida.com/elections/data…
The data are not user friendly. You download a zip file, which contains .txt files for each county. You can copy and past into a spreadsheet or upload into a statistical software package. #OpenAccess #Elections dos.myflorida.com/elections/data…
Weird thing though: the aggregate voter information is there for most of the counties, but NOT PALM BEACH @pbpost . The # registered in each precinct is missing. So are the # of votes for each candidate. Just zeros. At least as of today.

Hillary Clinton wrote her senior thesis on Saul Alinsky.
Saul Alinsky was a community organizer.
Hillary knows how to organize.
She uses "Rules for Radicals"
"Rules for Radicals" is dedicated to Lucifer (The First Radical)
#Election2018 is over but its not too late to #WalkAway.
Words mean something. Words create reality.
Words bring order out of chaos. True words are good.

"Rules for Radicals" is dedicated to Lucifer.
The people that follow those rules follow Lucifer.
Who else is a radical?

Obama was a community organizer. This is old news I know.
The community organizer president radical is running a third term from a veritable bottomless pit of radicals in Washington 2 miles from the Whitehouse. Organizing for action. Sedition. Treason.

1/ Gerrymandering has backfired for Republicans in Dallas County.

Republicans had hoped to keep a majority of Texas House seats there when they redrew district boundaries.

Now, they hold onto only two of 14.

3/ Democrats allege Republicans packed and cracked Latino voters across the county to diminish their voting strength overall and ensure a GOP majority.

The 2016 presidential vote and 2018 midterm elections solidifies, for me, that the black vote will always remain consistently progressive/do the right thing. We never miss a beat. Folks have already said this, but the left needs to start focusing exclusively on voter reform.
No one really needs to lecture blacks folks on the importance of voting. They just need to make it easier, more accessible for us, and eliminate prisoners losing their vote. Their lectures need to be aimed towards white women and Latinos, collectively.
It might be impossible, but white women need to be convinced equality is more beneficial to them than white supremacy (which is a hard sell) and non-white Latinos need to be paid more attention to (white Latinos are going to consistently be a lost cause).

1/ Texas Democrats were hoping for a historic year in 2018. What they got instead was hope for 2020.

2/ One source of Democratic optimism: single-digit victories this year for a handful of Republican incumbents who swept into office by double digits in 2014.

THREAD: Return to this thread throughout the night for breaking updates on adult-use legalization in Michigan and North Dakota, and medical cannabis legalization in Missouri and Utah (and well as a number of other significant cannabis-related efforts across the US).

1/
Democrat @CharlieCrist won re-election for the US House in Florida's 13th congressional district.

The cannabis connection? Crist held a roundtable in August with @Surterra to drum up support for a bill to provide federal employees and vets access to medical cannabis.

2/
Republican @mattgaetz has won re-election to U.S. House in Florida's 1st congressional district.

Gaetz has become an outspoken pro-cannabis advocate, both in Congress, and in his home state of Florida.

The Democrats whittled away at more of the GOP gains vs 2016 as a number of states (AZ, CO, OR) counted a weekend’s worth of mail-in ballots. What we see now is nearly final as most states have ended #earlyvoting and few mail-in ballots remain.
#Earlyvoting #MAGA #Election2018
The #Republican share of votes cast so far is +0.80% vs 2016. In contrast, the #Democrat share is -0.07%. In total, the Rep-Dem margin vs 2016 is R+0.87%. So the GOP is doing ~153K early votes better in these 13 states than they did in 2016.
#MAGA #Election2018
#Republicans have lifted their share of the vote from 2016 in 9 of the 13 states. #Democrats have done so in just 7 of the 13. Net, the distribution of votes have moved in the #GOP’s favor in 7 states; to the #Dems in 6.

The final large batch of votes came in from Florida (a few more will trickle in today & tomorrow) and again favored the Democrats, as expected. As a result, the GOP-Dem margin decreased 0.09% since yesterday and 0.29% over the last 24 hours.

People keep asking me about the Democrats doing well recently in #earlyvoting because they are catching up in my "Change in Rep-Dem vs 2016." This isn't true. The Dems are not doing well. Let me explain...
#MAGA #election2018
If the Republicans do 10 points better than the Dems in the "Change in Rep-Dem vs 2016" in the first million votes but then the Reps and Dems tie in the second million, the result moves from R+10% to R+5%.
#MAGA #election2018 #earlyvoting
That doesn't mean the Dems did better. In fact, the Republicans help their lead. But with a larger denominator, the Republicans no longer have the same percentage gain despite having the same nominal gain.

#Earlyvoting update:
The #Republican share of the votes cast so far is +1.3% against the “final” 2016 results and +0.7% against the corresponding date in 2016. In contrast, the #Democrat share is -0.2% in the “final” data and +0.2% in the “daily.”
#MAGA #Election2018
In total, the Rep-Dem margin in #earlyvoting vs 2016 is R+1.5% in the “final” data set and R+0.5% from 2016 in the “daily” data set. In other words, the GOP is doing about 243k early votes better in these 13 states than they did in 2016.
#MAGA #Election2018
#Republicans have lifted their share of the vote from 2016 in 9 or the 13 states. #Democrats have done so in just 7 of the 13. Net, the distribution of votes have moved in the #GOP’s favor in 8 states; to the #Dems in 5.

1. I am one of a majority of women in America. Yes, I am angry. And disgusted. And fearful over the direction of our country. But, I am far from powerless and with my sisters I make this pledge:
2. I am not ok with cruelly caging children, tearing them from their parents with no plan for reunification. I am not ok with creating orphans as a matter of government policy. I refuse to accept traumatizing children as an act of deterrence against immigration.
3. I am not ok with sitting by in denial while our planet faces certain peril and our children face uncertain futures for small economic gains from blind deregulation. We should be leading the world in our quest to stop climate change and protecting our precarious environment.

All 4 (now present) in Trump Presidency:

Tyranny-
1. Open hostility to verifiable reality and #FreePress
(Use of words “Hoax” or “Fake.”

2. Shamanistic incarnation- phrases used such as “lock her up” “build that wall.” And now....”Angry mob.” “Mob Rule.” Dazed by chants
3. Magical thinking (Mexico pays for wall/Drain the swamp. Facts are not necessary-just need a chant.)

4. Misplaced faith: (like Trump is “strong” and “protective” or the only one who can deliver positive economy.) @TimothyDSnyder
“Fake news” is used by an authoritarian who is trying to govern from place of uncertainty.

Those wondering how #Kavanaugh got confirmed today will not be surprised to learn that, in many ways, our government fails to represent us. You may have seen this meme. But it is worse than you think. More data in the thread below. #Elections2018 #Election2018 Image
Today, women make up roughly 51% of the U.S. population but control just 23% of the Senate and 19% of the House. Image
“By 2040, it is predicted that 70% of the population will live in just 15 states and thus select only 30% of U.S. Senators.” Or worse. washingtonpost.com/news/politics/…

#Florida study finds "mail ballots were 10 times more likely to be rejected than votes cast at early #voting sites or on #election day" and "ballots cast by youngest voters, blacks and Hispanics were much more likely to be rejected."
