    lolol I will love to see conservatives contort themselves into defending this.

    I love the fact that his term ends on Jan 20th no matter what. There is no way around the constitution on that point.

    so, between a global pandemic that's functionally getting ignored, ongoing protests against the state from left and minority groups, galloping unemployment and looming eviction crisis that is functionally deadlocked and the largest economic drop in modern history. trump makes the move that is going to rile up the qanon "deep state" parts of his base when it becomes obvious that no, it doesn't work like that. why ? because he's being unseated by the liberal-fascist-deep-state-swamp despite trying his very best to combat COVID spread!

    this is lead-in-to-terrible-post-apocalyptic-sci-fi tier stuff we've got going on, p. happy im moving into a 50's era building next week with a airraid shelter.

    What about the procedures for voting in the November election?

    While the date of the presidential election is set by federal law, the procedures for voting are generally controlled at the state level. That’s why we have such a complicated patchwork of voting regulations, with some states allowing early and absentee voting; some permitting voting by mail or same-day voter registration; others requiring certain kinds of identification for voters; and many states doing few or none of those things. So it is possible that states could revise their voting procedures in response to a public health crisis, perhaps by making it easier to vote by mail or through various absentee procedures that would not require people to cluster together on one particular date. Washington State, a focal point for the coronavirus outbreak in the United States, has conducted elections by mail for years, and its presidential primary on March 10 was able to unfold without disruption. The federal government could also take steps to mandate or encourage different voting procedures, without changing the timing of the election. Richard L. Hasen, an election law expert and professor at the University of California, Irvine, has proposed that Congress require states to offer “no excuse absentee balloting” for the general election, so that anyone can opt to vote by a method besides in-person voting on Election Day.

    Can't have mail in voting if the postal service collapses before then.

    If only the virus killed the morons first and then no one else. Still it stands to reason that over the next few months more of the science denying fat fuck morons will get it than the rest of us that give a shit. Oh and the moronic "influencer" parties might weed a few out, but those shitbags might just end up killing their family members, who weren't making enough views anyways, fuck em.

    except most of those that are dying are poor who cannot afford adequate care and often essential workers who didn't actually get a choice and had to put on the mickey-d costume.

    these people, overwhelmingly, have zero political engagement and most likely don't vote.

    It's indefensible.

    It's almost like those in power realize this, and have spent the last fifty years making it increasingly difficult for those that would vote against them to actually cast a ballot.

    When a gun is to your head but hasn't been pulled and goes off at random, you tend to start asking why the fuck that's happening to you and if there's a way out. Not voting now or trying and finding out they made it impossible for you isn't gonna go over well. Republicans might try to foretell the election but if it doesn't work, they will lose more than just a few spots, they're fucked completely then.

    Is it really more difficult to cast a ballot today than it was fifty years ago?
