My state finally had its primary yesterday (originally was supposed to be April 28 but was moved for Covid 19).
A big reason why I don't like the current primary system that means a handful of early states get to decide the nominee and people living everywhere else have no say.
I received a mail-in ballot.
You could drop it in the mail or take it to a designated drop off box.
I went to my local library to drop it off.
There was a very long line of people voting. Elementary schools are closed, so there are limited places for in person voting.
Interesting that so many people were willing to wait hours in line to vote in a primary where all but one presidential nominee has dropped out.
There was a Congressional primary, and I took that seriously. Looked up the candidates and voted against the incumbent who was on his 14th year. My way of voting for term limits. I will vote for the Democratic incumbent in the fall if he wins the primary. Since parties do block voting in Congress, it's important to vote for the Democrat.
What I took from this is that people are motivated to vote.
Nov 3 will have a huge turnout nationwide.
We need mail-in ballots and as many polls open as possible, because people will be voting in person.
I am curious as to how many polls in North Carolina will be open in black communities.
Biden should win NC, but that state is famous for voter suppression.
Also, we will not know the results of the presidential election on by November 4th. The people and the media will go crazy not declaring a winner right away.
And it won't be one state uncertain like 2000.
This is going to be an intense election.
