Voted yesterday.  Still seeing all the political signs, was hoping they would disappear

The signs I can deal with. It's all the goddamn houses and pick-up trucks flying Tump flags that I can't stand. One house I pass on my way home from work used to fly one of those POW/MIA flags and they took it down to put up the Dumpster fire flag.

There's a couple trump banners around here with the "Make Liberals Cry Again" logo, which at least has some honesty about the motivations and thought processes of trump voters

It’s funny. In my liberal austin hood people are generally shamed out of putting actual Trump signs in their yards. Instead they make it obvious with their overblown support for the right wing nut job running for city council and pro-police messages.

Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

There's a couple of Trump signs on my hill--in my little, progressive VT hometown, goddammit. Fuckin' people, man -- they're the worst.

I've seen like 3 Biden signs and 1 Trump sign in all of Chicagoland.

I have to laugh at the Trump signs that say
No More Bullshit

really???

the only thing more ridiculous is "Drain the Swamp"

got our ballots last week. I still have to decide on the local ballot questions, will turn them in at town hall later in the week

Line was longer than RSD!

2 hours and 45 minutes of waiting in the cold, but I voted!

Interesting interview of a GOP congressman from PA. He signed the petition asking for them to throw out the PA results.
He admitted there was fraud

committed by Republicans

C-S: Was there election fraud in 2020?

SG: Yes, there was. They have confirmed cases of election fraud.

C-S: Who committed that fraud in Pennsylvania?

SG: Right, Republicans. But it?s still election fraud. It doesn?t matter who [commits] it. We don?t want that fraud to occur. And to say there wasn?t any is a lie.

Now, I will say there?s not like this mass amount of fraud, that?s going to shift hundreds of thousands of votes. But there was election fraud. We have had repeated, repeated election fraud in this commonwealth for decades.
