#CAPrimary: There were massive lines, almost all #Bernie voters. How did they pull that off? Registered Dems got the ballot with the presidential candidate and didn’t have to wait in line. So who’s waiting in line? People who got those crazy NPP ballots! gregpalast.com/bernie-lost-55…
Here's the trick. NPP voters had to wait in line to exchange their ballots for a Crossover one. And if you don't have your ballot with you, they give you a provisional ballot. gregpalast.com/bernie-lost-55… #CAPrimary2020 #CaliforniaPrimary #CaliforniaPrimary2020 #SuperTuesday
In 2016, #California gave out 1.3 million provisional ballots — that’s half of the provisional ballots in the entire U.S. Then they disqualified 407,000 of those ballots. theguardian.com/commentisfree/… #CaliforniaPrimary #CAPrimary #BernieSanders

#Biden supporter California Secretary of State, #AlexPadilla, wins “Vote Suppressor of The Year.” By sheer numbers of ballots disqualified—with young and LatinX voters suppressed—Padilla makes Katherine Harris and Brian Kemp look like Thomas Jefferson. wsj.com/articles/calif…

#CAPrimary2020: How many hundreds of thousands of #BernieSanders votes will be lost in the avalanche of "provisional" ballots? theguardian.com/commentisfree/… #CAPrimary #CaliforniaPrimary #CaliforniaPrimary2020 #Bernie2020
In 2016, the state forced 1,307,190 voters to cast provisional ballots, 408,749 of those were rejected, a valid rejection rate equal to all other 49 states combined. gregpalast.com/bernie-won-cal… #CAPrimary #CaliforniaPrimary #CaliforniaPrimary2020
In '16, California vote chief Alex Padilla backed Hillary Clinton, now he's been campaigning for Joe Biden. The victims? LatinX and young voters. It's José Crow, Georgia with a bullet. gregpalast.com/how-california… #CAPrimary #CaliforniaPrimary #CAPrimary2020 #SuperTuesday

#CAPrimary: One of the disasters this year is caused by the fact that LA and other counties cut polling stations by 90%. #CaliforniaPrimary #CAPrimary2020 #CaliforniaPrimary2020 #BernieSanders #Bernie2020
They were replaced by so-called “voting centers “ which anyone would know were deeply insufficient and unprepared — especially as #Bernie got out the word that you had to bring in your NPP ballot to exchange it for a Crossover Democratic ballot. #CAPrimary #CAPrimary2020
There's zero question about who was hurt: Regular Democrats tend to mail in their ballots. But most NPP independent voters, who widely favor #Bernie, could not mail in their ballots because they had to do the exchange. gregpalast.com/how-california… #CAPrimary #CAPrimary2020

Millions of California independents are accidentally signed up for a racist, homophobic party. Millions more are handed a ballot without presidential candidates. In consequence, millions of people will not get to cast a vote in the primary. truthdig.com/articles/theyr… #CAPrimary
But it gets even worse! If independently-minded voters (categorized as No Party Preference or NPP voters in California) don’t say the magic words, ‘I want a Democratic crossover ballot,’ they are automatically given a ballot without the presidential race. mintpressnews.com/democrats-stea…
It's bananas that it’s this hard to obtain the correct ballot in California! mintpressnews.com/democrats-stea… #CAPrimary #CAPrimary2020

California @BernieSanders voter education 🧶

The Primary election decides which Democrat will face Trump in November. YOU MUST VOTE IN THE PRIMARY in order to have a say in whether Bernie is the one who faces Trump.

CA primary ends March 3rd, Super Tuesday, this time around!
#CAprimary2020 is a month long primary, more or less, if you vote by mail. VBM ballots start getting mailed out same day as the Iowa caucus, February 3rd, depending on the county you live in.

➡️ Don't wait until March 3rd! Take advantage of the opportunity to #VoteEarly!
By voting before March 3rd you minimize the potential for voter suppression and genuine polling day mistakes. You also ensure that your vote will be counted by the end of the day March 3rd, not weeks later, when the media have already run amok with the projected winner!
