This is the foundation of our democracy. This is taught in any junior high school social studies class.

Your votes won't be displayed publicly.

I agree that if you throw out the ballots, this thing gets waaaay simpler.

Maybe you should turn your concern to Minnesota’s sitting governor who isn’t giving up power right now. It’s actually happening today, vs a hypothetical that may happen in a few months.
Lol, vote him out or just keep crying whatever works for you.

That's the funny thing, dem's get all worked up about Trump's moronic comments, when they are rarely followed up by any action.

Meanwhile democratic governors are the ones who are actually ruling by authoritarian rule, and spew lies to keep their authoritarian rule in place.

Trump is simply a reflection of blue collar lives matter. Those folks got their towns gutted in the last 30’years. Rough

What lies is Walz "spewing" to keep his "authoritarian rule" in place?

the state is no longer reporting total hospitalization and daily ICU numbers with the Covid report. That seems interesting. Not saying it’s under Walz’s order, but if you’re the governor everything a state agency does is your issue.
What about the 7 million dollar bix warehouse building that was needed for dead bodies. Now it’s being used as a glorified warehouse to store masks and gloves.
How about allowing the candy store in Jordan to open to help out a friend while shutting down other small businesses.
There is always waiting 4 days to call in the national guard after the city burned. Plus he allowed the Christopher Columbus statue to be torn down when he knew people were intent to do that. Notice that it has not been put back up yet.

I realize Trump supporters are able to rationalize almost anything he says or does.

but stop and consider this:

The President of the United State suggested that the only fair way to determine the winner of a Presidential election is to NOT count all the ballots.

Even if you say he was joking - is that the type of thing the President should be joking about?

Free, fair and honest elections are supposed to be the bedrock of our democracy.

this election could be a bigger mess than anyone thought possible.

we are living in a bad movie.

This election will be a disaster. With all the states having various time lines for how mail in ballots are counted. When the ballots need to be lost marked. States are different in how mail in ballots are allowed to be changed once their is an issue found. More people than ever are requesting mail in ballots. Plus the mail may or may not be slowing down. Add in the fact that everyone will be doing Christmas shopping online and stores are starting ads in October the increase in may flow could be astronomical. There is a fighting chance this election will make Gore vs. Bush look like a smooth election. It could be February and the winner still may not be known.

I think SON is confusing votes with ballots. "ballots" in this case refer to mailed-in ballots, not votes cast in person.

Multiple people from Democrat leadership have said they won't concede the election, just like they've never accepted the 2016 election. Curious why the press doesn't ask Hiden about his views...
... oh ya, Hiden only accepts pre-scripted questions so he can give teleprompter responses.

He's absolutely going to file lawsuits left and right claiming fraud in every state that's remotely close.

No doubt about it. Don't be surprised to see lawsuits filed for emergency injunctions on November 4th asking for ballot counting to immediately halt in every state. They're already drafting them to have them ready to go.

In that scenario it'll be the mail-in ballots that are excluded.
