A lot of Black worked quietly and stealthily, from grassroots organizations, to volunteers bringing voter to the polls or answering questions about the absentee ballot process to helping get people registered to encouraging and reminding family and friends to get their absentee ballots in early. It had to be done--anything to try to stop the carnage from this virus and this economic fallout on communities that have been suffering. There was really no other choice.

Trump is trying to get mail in votes tossed out, if he succeeds he will have won in some states and it could overturn the election. Plus Republicans are attempting to do in local and state races too. Some states still haven't certified their votes or haven't officially finished counting.

I wouldn't say he could even get votes tossed out, as he can't point to any single instance of voter fraud. He would have to supply that evidence first. I think someone earlier hit the nail on the head though in that they are trying to establish a foothold to weaken the states rights/laws concerning elections. That was straight out of the Kavanaugh playbook and that's what conservatives are trying to do moving forward. Make it so states themselves can't hold elections and rules are administered by the federal government, making it easier for them to disenfranchise certain voters who Republicans can't win with. This also establishes a precedent where incumbent Presidents can refuse to concede elections. Democrats won't use this, but Republican presidents very well may. 


Thanks, @sivad40 and @Skin!

I do think it's hilarious that the GOP goes on and on about the 'radical left wing,' but their own party has not been in the 'center', in what, 30 years? The DNC does such a bad job of marketing this to the wider public. 


If anything, the DNC in its current state has much more in common with the GOP of the past than the current GOP does.
