Day 4

Published last at 11:33am CDT October 30 2020, subject to change throughout the day.

84,541,764 have been cast for Election 2020 thus far accounting for 61.3% of the total votes cast in the 2016 general election.

In Minnesota the 8th Circuit court has ruled to reject all absentee ballots received after 8:00pm on Election Day.

Unphased by these efforts, though, many have been heeding the call with early voting and mail-in voting records continuing to be broken.

In Texas more than 9 million have already been cast, which is more than 2016 turnout. This impressive turnout has offiically flipped the state to be considered a "Toss-up" by various forecasters.

Additionally, in another tightly monitored state, Georgia, Senate challenger Jon Ossoff reported last night that incumbent David Perdue cancelled their last debate for this weekend. Perdue cites his commitments to aiding Trump for the cancellation whereas Ossoff cites their Wednesday debate.

These continued efforts of squashing support for mail-in options and the continued developments where see see states - once considered Republican safegrounds - gaining Democratic momentum shows us that we can and do have the power.

It's up to every single one of us to:

  • Vote today, vote early and if you cannot make a plan to arrive early on November 3rd to vote
  • Inspire those in your networks to vote
  • Use tools like IWillVote.com and BallotReady.com to help

And most importantly, take care of yourself and one another, it's going to be a wild next week, and COVID's third wave is just starting.

Let's take a leaf out of AOC's book and "drink water and don't be racist".
