Wait, you actually get a sticker to say that you voted?

That's standard in US elections. I have always been offered a sticker.

What a last few days.  The house is blue, and then Trump immediately shits the bed and triggers the Rapid Response protests.  I just came back from it.  I hope that Mueller will be ok; fortunately it is looking like Whit's promotion may not even be legal.  Let's hope so.

I'm just shaking my head at all the attempts to retroactively mess with vote totals (trying to stop mail-in votes being counted in parts of Arizona). Stop literally undermining democracy, rather than just trying to oppose it.
Still short tempered.

the Georgia race is pretty insane right now. sounds like the purged votes by the 'winning' candidate is up to 340,000 (who is the current Secretary of State in his own race)

the conservatives know that, if voter turnout is high, they will lose.
- Voter IDs for the indigenous in North Dakota that requires physical addresses, when they don't have them on reservations.
- polling locations in gated communities that require IDs, when the state doesn't require IDs.
- illegal purging of votes based on bullshit.
- reduced number of locations and/or machines to ramp voting times to 3+ hours. at least it's not summer, like the primaries.
- malfunctioning machines (not so much this election), that would vote for the conservative candidate even though you voted Democrat for the whole ballot.
- running out of ballots
