Trump doesn't want to "test" the system, he wants to de-legitimize it


And increase unnecessary crowding and confusion at the polls on Election day:

N.C. Attorney General Josh Stein reminded people they cannot vote twice, again rebuking President Donald Trump’s telling North Carolinians to vote by mail and to try again in person. It is illegal to vote twice.

Trump tweeted: “NORTH CAROLINA: To make sure your Ballot COUNTS, sign & send it in EARLY. When Polls open, go to your Polling Place to see if it was COUNTED. IF NOT, VOTE! Your signed Ballot will not count because your vote has been posted. Don’t let them illegally take your vote away from you!”

Think about it. If his supporters follow this recommendation, there will be thousands of additional voters showing up at their polling places for no reason, asking poll workers for evidence that voter could easily get through the new NC Board of Elections BallotTrax portal. We're struggling as it is to have enough volunteers working the polls, the last thing they need is a steady stream of assholes who've already voted clogging up the process. Lines will already be long with social distancing, and this will turn even the least-crowded precincts into nightmares.



We shouldn't have to do this,

but maybe posting somebody outside the voting area with an IPad who can check people's absentee ballot status might be a good idea. Not sure how complicated the process is, but it's worth looking into.

Of course, you'd need volunteers for that, too...

They'll be in the long lines too.....

.....And Republicans have jobs to be at. They're not standing in line for 3 hours. After all, they're "working their assets off so Democrats don't have to." So I've heard anyhoo
