Whether schools and churches are open for kids and church goers has NOTHING to do with whether these facilities will be open for polling. Good lord, that's pathetic... The bigger concern is poll workers, mostly retired, and how many will be available to man the polls.

Tell you what, how about we put out some old drive up mailboxes in front of the polling station and let people just drive up and drop off their ballots. Print them at home and do ID verification right in the drive thru lane.

Hell, I'll even agree to let the poll watchers dress up like colonial soldiers and ride white horse out front all patriotic and such...

Well it does too!!!! Because if they can be opened for voting, they can be opened for services and schooling.

Only to those ignorant of the risks during a pandemic... Utilizing as a polling place is a contract between the elections board and the facility.

They've been brutalized by Fox News programming and daytime talk radio for decades. This is the result.

One thread after another with every excuse in the book to try to suppress the vote... They know what's coming and it isn't pretty for their candidates...

They want to keep them closed for safety so that large numbers of people don't congregate there for long periods of time.

They are not boarding them up or padlocking them, they can reopen safely with social distancing to vote and require masks.

If nothing else, it crystallized the fact that it's my duty to do everything in my power to vote out Trump.

I think we also need to get rid of voting for all these judicial positions. Do the vast majority of voters even know what or who they're voting for? Texas is the first state I've lived in where I went to the polls and got a book of electiona and referendums.

But democrats can go to several funerals for Lewis, and get together for riots any time they want.

sometimes it's like we're arguing with 18yo first time voters.
