    Anyone taking the day off Tuesday?

    No. Texas has voting open for 3 weeks now. Don't most states do this now?

    No, I was afraid of being quarantined as the virus is going around my sons school pretty heavily. I voted last week. I volunteered to be a poll worker but nobody ever called me...

    aren't we more likely to not be in wednesday, from watching the coverage (and still not knowing anything in the morning)
    for those of us who are political junkies, this could be like the superbowl going on for 2 -3 weeks (or Bush v GORE x10)

    but yes, i will vote in person tuesday so i may well be taking the day off, whether i intend to. or not

    LMAO! I intend to take off Wednesday morning if Trump wins (lesson learned from 2016). Biden, I'll go to work, no winner, I'll go in late.

    That is a very interesting statement. You must have some type of plan for yourself. Please share more on that specific plan. Are you and your family planning on leaving ths USA , If someone is Re Elected ? Sell all your property
    Quit your job. , close your business ( if you own one ) . Seriously. Go to Mexico ? Go to Canada ? Go to Cuba ? What is your plan ? Sounds interesting .

    Under normal circumstances, I'd say election day should be a national holiday which is structured to actually encourage voting vs just another day for businesses to put on a sale.

    Given the expansion of mail in voting & early voting, I don't think it's as necessary.

    I've only heard of Bruce Springsteen and Tommy Lee. Butler County Sherriff Jones has offered to help them pack.

    He lives in china, so he doesn't have a say, anyway. He's just a sign person, nothing important.

    when alec baldwin threatened to leave the country i ups's him a sleeve of uhaul moving boxes

    seriously, bear in mind that when the election swings the other way, the OTHER 150,000,000 people (perhaps the more mature half of the country, since they never occupied portland?) felt exactly the same way. a fact that we seem to loose sight of. you may find it hard to believe but your opinion DOESN'T carry more weight than the opinion of the other side (REGARDLESS OF WHICH WAY YOU ARE VOTING)

    I already did that 3 years ago, but It wasnt because of Trump, now that see how Things are in the US I'm glad I made the move when I did. I moved to China, lets not hate now.....

    i am hooking up a 46" tv in the office, so we can watch election results, supreme court proceedings, i doubt that either side will concede gracefully
