You smell that? That’s that bull$#!t.
The national election of the presidency, senate, and congress are 21 days away and somehow there has been a MAJOR voting registration debacle in Virginia. According to WUSA9, a cord, that’s right, a cord has been cut that has disabled the state’s voter registration system on the very last day that residents of the commonwealth are eligible to register.
Putin? That you???
These are some top-notch shenanigans and local officials definitely need to investigate exactly how this happened and relay that transparent report to the public ASAP! Public confidence in elections is already at rock bottom and the idea of “rigging” has been pushed upon the voting populous by 53% of white women’s COVID-commander-in-chief that all efforts to ensure fairness should be exhausted.
Governor Ralph Northam said that he doesn’t have the power to push back the registration deadline and the courts would have to make that mandate. He said he supports such a measure but we shall see. Gotta watch these Republicans closely when it comes to elections.
The power was restored later on in the day according to reports from CNN, but some voters were angry over the “unexpected” outage. A coalition of voting rights groups, filed a lawsuit after the system crashed and urged the state to extend the voter registration deadline for 48 hours.
Here are some helpful tips to keep in mind when filling out your ballot too:
If you’ve already received your mail-in ballot, your ballot must be postmarked by Nov. 3 and must be received to the Virginia Board of Elections by Nov. 6 at noon.
Before mailing your ballot in, make sure that you’ve signed everywhere that needs to be signed. If not, your ballot could be thrown out. This includes the voter’s oath or your return envelope, and anything pertaining to your witness requirements.
If you live in Virginia and aren’t sure if you are officially registered please check HERE on your status. Your vote is important and these people will do anything to take it away from you.
