Minnesota is often chilly, but the courts cast a terrible frost over elections. Ballots received after Nov 3 may not be counted. Minnesotans are accustomed to hostile conditions, so let’s get those votes cast! #MeetChaosWithAction
You have options!

Do not let voter suppression suppress your commitment.
Make sure this election is #TooBigToRig

Thread on preparing for potential local violence on Election Day. The purpose of this is to tell you all what to expect in days ahead; sometimes we are not transparent enough on planning and preparedness and what it looks like. This may be long. But hopefully helpful. 1/

Donald Trump said today to “get rid of the ballots.” #Election2020 #VoteLikeYourLifeDependsOnIt…
Authoritarians and dictators say things like this - countries where elections are predetermined.
