THREAD: Tuesday's presidential primary election is 100% still happening. Here's what you need to know about voting in the age of coronavirus! @LUCHA_AZ @ChispaAZ @case_az @AZadvocacy @AllVotingAZ @IndivisibleofAZ
@LUCHA_AZ @ChispaAZ @case_az @AZadvocacy @AllVotingAZ @IndivisibleofAZ 1) Live in Maricopa County? The bad news: 80 polling places have been shut. The great news: You can now vote at ANY polling place in the county. Go to onearizona.org/vote to find one convenient for you.
@LUCHA_AZ @ChispaAZ @case_az @AZadvocacy @AllVotingAZ @IndivisibleofAZ 2) Live outside of Maricopa County? For the most part, your polling place has not changed. Yuma closed one polling place (the health department, for obvious reasons). Apache County moved a few. Go to onearizona.org/vote to find where to vote

1/ It’s presidential #primary season, and we’re in the middle of a #pandemic. President Trump has declared a #NationalEmergency, sports seasons are postponed, and yet voters may be forced to line up at crowded polling locations to #vote. 4 states still have #primaries next week!
2/ There’s a bill in the Senate right now that would make it possible for all Americans to #VoteAtHome, keeping everyone safe while ensuring the 2020 elections continue. Add your name to send a message to your Senators, urging them to pass the bill: act.represent.us/sign/vote-at-h…
3/ If passed, this bill (S.3440) would require all states to allow voters to request absentee ballots if a widespread emergency made voting in person unsafe. #CommonSense #coronavirus

Wisconsin’s 4 Republican “Representatives” voted no. They voted against you, your neighbors, those that need help. This is why you MUST vote to replace them in November. @WisDems #WILeg

Gallagher CD 8
Grothman CD 6
Sensenbrenner CD 5
Steil CD 1
Here are the candidates running against those terrible 4 Republicans:

We should expect to see more talking head recommendations for how to alter the #voting process to address #coronavirus concerns. Voting by mail is going be a part of the solution.

Here's why I don't think it can be the whole solution for the #2020election

THREAD:
States should move to allow more voting by mail independent of recent developments. The @BPC_Bipartisan Task Force on #Elections recommends just that. We support moves by our friends at @voteathome to ensure all Americans have the option to vote by mail

bipartisanpolicy.org/report/logical…
That doesn't mean all states have taken the important steps to update laws and technology to administer an #election with a very high % of #voting by mail, and it's unlikely many can get up to speed before the #2020election. Many state legislatures have already adjourned

Today we released research that reveals the political views of #GenZ shows a vast gender divide that will have significant implications for #election2020.

Here are a few major takeaways. #Thread
IGNITE partnered with Dr. Melissa Deckman @MelissaDeckman of Washington College to survey a nationally representative sample of more than 2,200 Americans aged 18-23 in the summer of 2019.
One, for the first time in American history, Gen Z women will surpass their male peers in terms of political engagement. The #politicalpower of these young women will be an asset to candidates who actively engage this demographic.

I understand you are planning to vote for @BernieSanders.

This is a free country, and you have the right to #vote for him. I am grateful to live in a country where we actually have a choice when we go to the #ballotbox. There are many countries where that option doesn't exist.
That there are countries were the head of government places his/her name on the ballot, no competition, and still conducts an election. Of course, in such countries, voting is actually often MANDATORY.
Did you realize that?

The result? The head of government receives overwhelming ballot box support. 80% 90% support!

'Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the state
A whole bunch of folks just weren't doing so great;
With no health insurance, and school weeks 4 days
The legislature was unworthy of praise. #moleg
Lawmakers were sleeping all snug in their beds
While visions of #DarkMoney danced in their heads.
The will of the people they chose to ignore;
Democracy seemed just too much of a chore.
To make voting easy, they simply refused
For a map with #fairdistricts, they just had no use.
The roads they were crumbling, the bridges were too;
Where cement was needed, the fix was but glue.
Women and doctors were growing irate;
Their bodies and freedoms now seized by the state.
Our unions and workers faced ruthless attack
Wishing for someone who just had their back.

@bbcquestiontime @IBlackfordSNP Thank you so much for speaking up for #50swomen #waspi. £271-400billion was taken out of the NI FUND as treasury stopped paying in their share around time of bank crash. More than enough to provide decent pensions #NHS & benefit funding.

This proposed Tory legislation will affect & severely limit the rights of thousands of vehicle-dwelling people. Not just Gypsies, also seasonal workers, farriers, racing & sports people, festival crew, blacksmiths, construction crews, & others who Ms Patel classes as -
- having 'other' lifestyle choices.

This is an escalation of Thatcher's Criminal Justice Bill. Whilst not directly related to #Brexit, there's no denying the Leave mandate has emboldened racists and those seeking to curtail freedoms. -
These ideas are worse than before, and are nothing short of Ethnic Cleansing.
If you just a holiday maker then this doesn’t apply to you, but if you live in your vehicle AT ALL, if you use a live-in for your lifestyle, work, sport, festivals or everyday life, this is about you. -

PEDOPHILES!
@POTUS @realDonaldTrump @ICEgov Children have been raped and murdered because FAKE NEWS didn’t tell the truth about Jeffrey Epstein’s Island & Child Trafficking by wealthy politicians & celebrities. Shameful. @arobach 🍕🌭
@arobach @jamesgoldston @FBI Fake News / Epstein Cover-up. @ABCNetwork @abcnews @ABC @realDonaldTrump @POTUS ABC endangered children and protected sexual predators by not sharing the truth for 3 years. @CBSNews @NBCNews @ChrisNagusKMOV @KMOV @GayleKing @NorahODonnell #RealNews 🍕
In 2016, ABC killed a story about a pedophilia ring.

3 years later the story became public.

How many children were raped in those years? How many child rapists got away?

Why kill the story?

Bill Clinton was implicated & @HillaryClinton was running for President.

@3Days3Nights The real question is, why did #Q choose to have 93 days of #darkness, and why was "dk" chosen as a coded form of #Silent #Running?

In '93, after a 2nd #Referendum, #Denmark (country #code DK) ratified the #Maastricht #Treaty creating the #EU.
What if there was #Voter #Fraud?
@3Days3Nights In those days, there was a flaw in #Cisco #routers which allowed the #CIA to hack into the #EU #negotiations and monitor all #electronic #comms, including #VOIP. I know this from an #Internet #insider. This data is likely now in the #NSA's #archives. So, yes, proof of #EU #fraud.
@3Days3Nights I'm not saying for 100% sure that there was #Fraud in the #Denmark #referendum that ratified #Maastricht. And I'm not saying for 100% sure that the #USA has proof that the very #Creation of the #EU was #fraudulently #accomplished. But the clamor for a 2nd #Brexit #vote...

You may hear people saying the CPC will cut healthcare. You may hear CPC supporters say that's fear-mongering. But, is it, really? Let's take a look. 1/25

The National Citizen's Coalition was incorporated in 1975 by an insurance agent names Colin M. Brown. Mr. Brown had begun advertising back in 1967 against the Canada Health Act. 2/25
Our universal health care was the NCC's primary target, but over the 4 decades it has been in existence, it has also campaigned against;

- The Canadian Wheat Board

- the Canadian Labour Congress' strike protesting wage and price controls in 1975

The Constitution Act of 1867 says the role of government in Canada is "peace, order, and good government". It sounds a bit quaint, but it is included in the Constitution Acts of many Commonwealth countries, like Australia, New Zealand, etc. 2/25
Americans have "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness". Sounds very free-wheeling and individualistic. Given the sh*t-show in the US, I'll have me some peace, order and good government, thanks. 3/25

In the 2020 general election #Wisconsin has ONE decision... Who will be the next president of the United States?

Get registered, get educated, and #VOTE!

If Trump's recent actions have not caused enough concern, here's how his policies are hurting WISCONSIN...
Trump's improvised and failing trade policies have real-life consequences for Wisconsin. Yet Trump doesn’t seem to care much about the fate of Wisconsin farmers, manufacturers, and laborers insisting he is doing a great job as president.

observatory.journalism.wisc.edu/2019/01/09/is-…
Trump pledged to use his business & negotiating skills to end trade practices that have hurt farmers... as a result, Wisconsin is LOSING FARMS!

From January to July, WI lost 491 farms. At that rate, the Dairy State could lose 735 dairy farms this year, a decline of 9%.

I expect every party to be making hay over Trudeau's makeup for the next several days. Because when something is tossed in your lap, you go for it, right? Except, maybe that isn't the high road... To begin with, I acknowledge my privilege. #cdnpoli #VOTE #NeverScheer 1/24
I am white. I grew up in a lower middle class family and got a good education. Education was highly valued in my home, and I know it isn't that way in many families. Many kids grow up without someone at home who encourages and supports educational success. 2/24
Having said that, and acknowledging that I cannot appreciate the pain that racial discrimination may bring, I still say that 20 years ago we were less enlightened than we are now. We had less opportunity to be enlightened. 3/24

We are now entering a new paradigm. @charlesadler is calling out conservatives who threatened a Liberal cabinet minister and her children. Physically threatened. The (sic) kudatah boys are spreading across the country. 1/10
I heard a @cbcradio report that experts expect, regardless of who wins the election, the losing side will not accept the win. I beg to differ. In #ableg the hard right did not accept the NDP win. They sought to overthrow the democratic choice. 2/10
It is not Liberal supporters, or NDP or Green, who threaten to "take back" their province or country from the duly elected government. Let's drop this "both-sideism". It is only the far right that threatens violence if they don't get what they want. 3/10

Good morning and welcome to another #Brexit thread

I'll be attempting to cover the events that are happening both in the Commons and in the Lords today so this is going to be a long one

1/n
So first things first, hello to all my new followers and here's a quick breakdown of what's happening today, and a quick precis of how business in each House is carried out and why really arcane things seem to happen that bear little-to-no relationship to reality

2/n
What's expected for today?

In the Lords the Opposition and Crossbench peers have laid a motion that will allow them the time to scrutinise the Bill that's about to be debated in the Commons. They want to debate this Bill on Friday at the latest. More on that later
