Too Late to Vote by Mail

Republicans in power are trying to suppress votes likely to be cast by Democrats. Mail is being slowed in key areas that vote heavily Democratic, like Detroit and Philadelphia. Right wing legislatures and judges have instituted or are instituting rules preventing ballots from being tabulated if they arrive after election day even if they were postmarked several days before election day. It’s probable that, if an issue that comes before the Supreme Court that gives them the chance, a majority of Justices –– Kavanaugh, Thomas, Alito, Gorsuch, and Barrett –– will vote to throw the election to Trump. Democratic candidates and supporters are urging voters to vote in person or hand-deliver ballots to official drop boxes. Six days before election day shouldn’t be too late to vote by mail, but it is.
