There's nearly 10,000 people watching the Michigan Board of Canvassers meeting already, which I'm guessing is around 9,990 more than usually do.
Annnnd we're off: Nearly 17,000 people watching.

Aside from the lack of hard evidence, even if it’s true that the lack of in-person canvassing hurt Dem turnout, it likely also saved lives, which was kind of the whole point.
For that matter, even if it turned out NOT to have saved any lives, that’s hardly a mistake I can blame them for making. Especially since HE STILL FUCKING WON BY SIX MILLION VOTES WHILE RECEIVING TEN MILLION MORE VOTES THAN BARACK OBAMA.
The problem downballot, as far as I can tell, was NOT Democratic turnout, it was REPUBLICAN turnout ALSO being sky high.

I’m not sure how much in person canvassing could’ve helped with THAT.

What?? A Republican conceded that they lost without demanding a recount? Wow. That's refreshing...
According to @CookPolitical, the House tally is now:

Democrats: 222
Republicans: 209

...with 4 uncalled races...and check out how close they are: Image
But wait: #NY22 is now down to just a *75* vote difference!

📣 MICHIGAN: Updated/Corrected: Over 156,000 Michiganders have gained Medicaid coverage in the #COVID19 era thanks to #ACA expansion: acasignups.net/20/11/18/michi…
Here's how "Healthy Michigan" (#ACA expansion) enrollment has grown since it was launched in April 2014. It ramped up & hovered between 650K - 700K until February 2020...after which enrollment has taken off again.
That's a 23% increase since February. If the #ACA is struck down by the Trump/GOP lawsuit, *830,000 Michiganders* would be screwed.

That's one of MANY reasons why the Georgia Senate runoffs aren't just about Georgians. Donate to #FlipBothGASeats today: secure.actblue.com/donate/garunof…

On the one hand, Medicaid expansion under the #ACA is up to the Governor & state legislature (which is why Georgia hasn't done so yet).

HOWEVER, if @ReverendWarnock & Jon @Ossoff are elected, the Senate could pass #HR584: 1/

#HR584, introduced by @RepTerriSewell & @RepVeasey last year, is very simple but would have a huge impact. Right now, if Georgia decided to expand Medicaid under the #ACA, they would have to pay 10% of the cost out of the gate. 2/

In Georgia, expanding Medicaid via the #ACA would provide healthcare coverage to up to 474,000 Georgians. Assuming $6,000/yr apiece total, Georgia would have to contribute $280 million/year.

Under #HR584, Georgia wouldn't pay anything for the first 3 years. 3/

That's Monica Palmer on the left.
She apparently only wants white people's votes counted.
Oh yeah...this photo comes from a story last week about an ethics complaint being brought against her for having a conflict of interest.

Population of Detroit: ~79% black (~531K / ~673K total)

Rest of Wayne County: ~15% black (~164K / ~1.08M total)
