For quite a few years we put our ballots in this box. Went out of service less than 10 years ago. (I blurred out the town name)

Well, Our Democracy.  Important distinction.  And of course "we" means... you know, the correct people.

I assume the Dem/MSM hyperventilating about "Our Democracy is in peril!" is mostly related to their shibboleth of "election denial!".  (I've been too bored with it to check.)  So, just a reminder:

Democrats in 2000:  "Bush stole the election!"

Democrats in 2004: "Bush stole the election - again!"

Democrats in 2016: "Trump - along with RUSSIA RUSSIA RUSSIA! - stole the election!"

Democrats in (and since) 2020:  "Anyone who questions the sanctity of our pristine electoral system is guilty of sedition, and insurrection, and treason!  They should be hunted down and killed, like the terrorists they are!!!"

So, I’m sure you’ve all gotten tired of the suffocating 24/seven news coverage that’s been devoted to the suspicious white powder that was mailed to Kari Lake’s campaign office, right?

I will surly vote later today.

Oh...sorry.  I meant I will surely vote later today.

The media has spent enough time prepping the mass for a "stolen election" narrative.

The President-ish of the United States has publicly declared that essentially any wins by the opposition party are illegitimate.

A school shooting that is not a school shooting.

1 person injured in shooting at Ingraham High School in north Seattle

This school is two miles away, I know the area. From the address and the pictures show, this happened next to the school not at the school.

So in Arizona, where the current Secretary of State is the Democrat candidate for governor, 20% of the polling places in Maricopa County are unable to process votes. But don't worry, just leave your ballot and we'll count it downtown tonight. 

GOP voters need to show up wherever it is they're destroying counting ballots and let the Democrats know they are not putting up with this shit anymore.

Media kept hammering Kari Lake on, "will you accept the outcome of the election?"

Joe Biden is signing an executive order stating that Thanksgiving is being re-named "Misgiving" this year.

In #14 JCM said: Media kept hammering Kari Lake on, "will you accept the outcome of the election?"

The appropriate response would be, "when I win, will you?  That's the real question."

She said that and way more, she hammered the media and dems on all their election denial. She really handle the media well. When I say well, she took all their BS and threw it back. Remember she was media for more than 2 decades.

Projection explains about 90% of Democrat attacks on Republicans. In this case, I hope Governor Lake opens an investigation into the SoS office under Katie Hobbs.

What do Democrat poll watchers bring to work as a snack?

I love voting in my little township.  Other than Govenor, Sens and Reps all the other down the ticket are only Republicans running.  The Dems don't even bother running here!  That's just how RED we are here.  Wish the rest of the country was.

Too many uncontested candidates for me to vote straight Republican. Don't want to leave anything blank and possibly have my ballot invalidated.

But where there was a choice, I voted Republican. I did make sure the candidates weren't loonies as in Marjorie Taylor-Greene, in which case I would have had to cehck the opponent too.

BTW, I often drive through Groton, MA. One main road is where I saw the largest number of Bernie Sanders signs when he was running. Another house has BOTH "I support our local law enforcement" and "Black Lives Matter" signs.

Go down Rt. 40, and it is mostly Republican signs, including one house with a fence around it and a large TRUMP 2024 sign.
