Here is a good link about,Mail Voting in all 50 States.

In these Global Pandemic times, you need to think about how you are going to vote.

One option that is an alternative to in-person voting, is Mail Voting/Absentee Voting.

First of all, Mail Voting/Absentee Voting – ARE THE SAME THING. Just depends upon what your state calls it.

The time is NOW for you, and your entire household to prepare for November.

Open Thread | We Knew What They Were Doing This Spring

When this was happening in the Spring, so many of us said that this is what was happening. So, there is no surprise for it to be validated. But, only increases my loathing of them.

From Vanity Fair:

How Jared Kushner’s Secret Testing Plan “Went Poof Into Thin Air”
This spring, a team working under the president’s son-in-law produced a plan for an aggressive, coordinated national COVID-19 response that could have brought the pandemic under control. So why did the White House spike it in favor of a shambolic 50-state response?
BY KATHERINE EBAN
JULY 30, 2020

………………………….

Normally, federal government purchases come with detailed contracts, replete with acronyms and identifying codes. They require sign-off from an authorized contract officer and are typically made public in a U.S. government procurement database, under a system intended as a hedge against waste, fraud, and abuse.

This purchase did not appear in any government database. Nor was there any contract officer involved. Instead, it was documented in an invoice obtained by Vanity Fair, from a company, Cogna Technology Solutions (its own name misspelled as “Tecnology” on the bill), which noted a total order of 3.5 million tests for an amount owed of $52 million. The “client name” simply noted “WH.”

Over the next three months, the tests’ mysterious provenance would spark confusion and finger-pointing. An Abu Dhabi–based artificial intelligence company, Group 42, with close ties to the UAE’s ruling family, identified itself as the seller of 3.5 million tests and demanded payment. Its requests were routed through various divisions within Health and Human Services, whose lawyers sought in vain for a bona fide contracting officer.
During that period, more than 2.4 million Americans contracted COVID-19 and 123,331 of them died of the illness. First in New York, and then in states around the country, governors, public health experts, and frightened citizens sounded the alarm that a critical shortage of tests, and the ballooning time to get results, were crippling the U.S. pandemic response.

But the million tests, some of which were distributed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency to several states, were of no help. According to documents obtained by Vanity Fair, they were examined in two separate government laboratories and found to be “contaminated and unusable.”

Who got paid from this invoice. There’s a reason why there’s nothing on it. Why the merchandise was CRAP. It was supposed to be CRAP. This was never a genuine order.
