pyropansy: frogmunist: superunfriendlyreminder: Funny how all these voting machine “glitches” always benefit republicans…. Isn’t this literally a joke in an episode of the Simpsons Hey! I’m an election worker! If you ever have an issue like this please tell the people who are working at the polls! I don’t know about other states, as ours got new machines two years ago and we have some of the newest polling machines in the country, but I’m sure that your local polling place will do something about a machine like this. If you don’t trust the machines to allow you to vote for who you want, you ALWAYS have the right to ask for a paper ballot. If they refuse, get that shit on video and blast them on social media. Election offices HATE having people complain about them on social media. Be sure to specifically get them denying you a paper ballot. PAPER BALLOTS ARE NOT INVALID BALLOTS AND WILL BE COUNTED. Know your rights, be nice to election workers, be sure to register to vote, and actually get out there and vote! (Also, if you are willing and able, you should sign up to be an election worker. In the US there is a serious problem with most election workers being Republicans. Most election offices try to have a balance between Democrats, Republicans and Independent, but that’s kind of hard when Republicans are the only ones who sign up. It pays pretty well, and its wayyyy less difficult than most retail jobs. You also can learn so much.) : Tate Reeves Bill Waller Jr. Write-in pyropansy: frogmunist: superunfriendlyreminder: Funny how all these voting machine “glitches” always benefit republicans….

State Sen. Gayle Goldin (D), who sponsored the bill, noted that every presidential candidate since Richard Nixon had released their tax returns voluntarily until President Trump ran for office. Trump has repeatedly claimed that he cannot release his tax returns because he is under audit, but the IRS said an audit does not prevent a candidate from releasing their personal tax information. Goldin argued that “tax returns provide essential information about candidates’ conflicts of interest.” Tax returns, she continued, are vital information a voter needs to know about a candidate at the ballot box. The bill passed the Democratic-majority Senate on a 34-3 vote. It now moves to the Rhode Island state House. : THE HILL Rhode Island bill would keep Trump off 2020 ballot unless he releases his tax returns gehayi: raven-conspiracy: Call your reps or use Resistbot if texting is your thing, and MAKE THIS HAPPEN in your state!! http://thehill.com/homenews/state-watch/393581-rhode-island-bill-would-keep-trump-off-2020-ballot-unless-he-filed-his Rhode Island’s state Senate passed a bill this week that would keep candidates off the presidential ballot in their state if they don’t release five years’ worth of tax returns, according to the Providence Journal.
