Some Tuesday election updates.

Let's begin with an encouraging, record setting 1st day #earlyvote in GA. Just jawdropping turnout, intensity. 1/

Most governors are popular. Not an anti-incumbent, throw the bums out election. 2/…
Dem House and Senate candidate fundraising advantage a big deal, could be the difference in the home stretch.

Remember candidates get lower rates than outside groups - means you get more for your dollar. Ds likely to close w/more ads than Rs. 3/

Friday night Senate landscape:

- Dems have taken CO, NH, WA off the board
- Have sturdy leads in AZ, GA, PA (Senate stays Dem)
- NC, NV, OH, WI are toss-ups
- 4 of 5 generics show Dems gaining
- Biden's approval rose, highest of year now

We should feel good about this.
We had a good week of polls. People should feel good.

No question I would rather be us than them.

But it's close, so close, and we have to keep doing the work.

And early vote is starting soon in many states.

It is critical Dems #VoteEarly. It helps us increase Dem turnout, makes our elections run more smoothly.

Vote early. Make your plans. It really matters.

1/ Election officials have been providing some excellent behind the scenes footage to help Americans understand more about the processes, procedures and safeguards used in election administration. This thread includes some favorites! #TrustedInfo2020 #Protect2020 #VOTE #IVoted
2/ Thanks @jolingkent for giving America a peak into one of the best operations in the country - @OCRegistrar.
3/ In a year w/ too much misinformation, confusion & rhetoric about a trusted method of voting, @VICENews did a great job showing some of what goes in to making mail/absentee ballots the preferred method of voting for millions of Americans!

Here's the thing, they are using these exaggerated threats about that ability in order to suppress the vote.

"It’s unlikely that Trump will steal the election. But unlikely doesn’t mean impossible." - @zackbeauchamp


"Trump’s focus on mail-in ballots is pernicious, and intentional. Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, many, many more Americans are planning to cast their ballots by mail. And polls have shown that Democrats are likelier to vote by mail than Republicans."

#WhenWeAllVote, #WeWillWin.

"The general sense among experts on American politics is that the nightmare scenarios ... are only plausible if the election is close, and even then, they remain unlikely."

I love building websites that answer simple questions.

I knew I'd be asking this question a lot over the next few days, so this morning I built:

This is the *massive* county where Republican Governor Greg Abbott said they could have only one absentee ballot drop box for the entire county. Looks like he failed at voter suppression in Harris County!
UNBELIEVABLE!!! Keep it up, Texas! ❤️💪

News has reached the front. There are new #SecondCivilWarLetters. The final battle is on and victory against President Trump’s “War on Intelligence” is near. Read on.

General Biden:

President Trump has run out of corners to round in his “War on intelligence”. The fires of contagion have encircled his wagon full of lies and there appears to be no escape. He lost the battle of COVID without even trying to win. Surrender!

General Harris:

President Trump’s “War on Intelligence” is nearing it’s end. It appears that both the President’s Secret Healthcare Plan and his cargo of bombshell revelations were both lost in the mail. They have run out of ammunition. Victory is near

Asian Americans being unapologetically Asian American in America is my favorite mode in the face of all the xenophobia and anti-Asian sentiment of 2020.

We mobilize. We vote. We say fuck you in ways our parents could not when faced with hate. #AAPI
18 to 29-year-old #AAPI voters cast 84,000 early votes in 2016.

So far this year, young Asian American voters have cast 330,000 early ballots. An almost 400% increase! 🙌🏼

Let’s keep it up. Text a friend!…
“...polls show that Indian Americans are turning decisively to the left, alienated by the @GOP’s divisive rhetoric toward immigrants and minority groups.

72% of registered Indian American voters plan to support Biden, compared with 22% for Trump.” #AAPI…

Trump, by tweet, argues against counting all the votes:

"Must have final total on November 3rd."

But the other lie is Twitter’s statement that mail-in voting is "safe and secure." Not in America:…

The seminal MIT study, Losing Votes by Mail, warns that 22% – more than one in five mail-in ballots – never get counted. #SaveMyVote2020…
What’s the solution?

Massive in-person early voting.

Go mid-week when there are no lines.

Bring mask, gloves, sanitizer, ID and resolve.

This is what democracy looks like. #Election2020 #VoteEarly
And to people replying.... of course it's also suppression! The board of elections failed to plan for this. But I am choosing in this moment to focus on my neighbors, who WILL do whatever it takes.

Glad the New York Times has caught up to what I’ve warned about: mailing in your ballot is playing Russian roulette with your vote. Don’t. Don’t. Don’t. #VoteByMail #VoteByMail2020 #SaveMyVote2020…

Morning thoughts after the #Debates2020 We have been living in the midst of evil for 4 years. For all of us with tender hearts this has felt intolerable. /1
2/ Last night Donald trump has an opportunity to express empathy for the families of 220,000 dead Americans - many of whom died alone. He was not able to do so
3/ Last night trump was offered an opportunity to express compassion for the children he ripped from parents arms to sleep alone on concrete. He could not offer a single shred of care

In the whole of my life I have never waited more than five minutes in line to early vote/vote. I am 49 and so that means in 31 years. Never.

Today I made it to the window for my ballot in just under 34 minutes. It was the middle of the afternoon. 😳
Don’t tell me something isn’t happening in this election.

I also want to say I have never cried reviewing my ballot and scanning it into the machine. I have never cried thanking poll workers. Never, never. Before today. 😪
I have prayed and prayed and wrestled over this election...and most every vote I had to cast (except one - thanks @cmjones99 for the quick civics lesson while I stood in line - my phone a friend). I am so proud of my selections.

THREAD: @FoxNews has played the long game & it has very nearly cost us our democracy. When they started their slogan was “Fair & Balanced”. It implied that the rest of the mainstream news channels, which the majority of Americans believed & trusted, were NOT fair or balanced. 1/8
It also created a false equivalency, where the GOP & Fox News pundits could make increasingly outrageous & factually dubious statements that could be given the same weight as mainstream news reporting, which in the vast majority of instances was down the middle & fact-driven. 2/8
Fox News was the originator of “both sides” political reporting, not in that they reported both sides, but that they CREATED the very dynamic that one side’s political demagoguery was the equivalent of the other side’s earnest political discourse. 3/8

Standing in line to get my ballot.... I can't describe to you just how much more practical this is for some people than same day voting. Line is 100% African American as far as I can tell mostly older folks
I requested my ballot online and in my state you can get your ballot EMAILED to you. Print it out and take it back. For some reason the BOE (which I've called a good 4-5 times since my application) had me listed as mail in. I don't trust it'll arrive on time OR that l I'll see it
So I'm standing in line. Do I worry about #covid? Yes but we're outdoors and no closer than you get to people in a grocery store. You do what you gotta do 🤷🏾‍♂️

It’s time to talk some real serious scary but necessary talk.
Here’s what I think you should do immediately to survive what I fear may come next.

“The danger he poses is related to past dangerousness he has shown in terms of verbal aggression, boasting about assaults, paranoid reactions… This is a national security threat and the White House has a credibility crisis.” @pttrn_ntgrty #The25thFor45

“It cannot be that here and now in 2020 we allow the government of the people, by the people and for the people to perish on this earth. No, it cannot and it must not… WE WILL VOTE.” @JoeBiden in Gettysburg

“The FBI says white nationalism is a real problem, and the FBI wants to do something about it, but President* Trump doesn’t want to talk about that. He doesn’t keep the country safe.” @GenMhayden @RVAT2020

Typical income taxes:

Teachers paid $7239
Firefighters paid $5283
Nurses paid $10,216

...and Donald Trump paid $750.

That is unfair by any measure.

“Who do you owe the money to? Do you owe debt to ANY foreign nation? Do you owe anybody money who is impacted by any decision you make as president* of the United States? WE NEED TO KNOW THAT.” @KamalaHarris
