Leave the absentee ballots to those who truly need them this year. YOU need to show up in person.

That's my plan.

Can't trust USPS. I mailed a small gift to someone two weeks ago via USPS first class. It got there yesterday.

Masks and gloves seem effective enough so far that I'm pretty sure that I can get away with it. I always go early in the morning before work when there's no crowd, so nothing new there.

Eh, I'll ask for an absentee ballot and drop it in a designated ballot box.

We’ll vote absentee and track our ballot. If it doesn’t arrive by Election Day, we’ll head for the polls.

California has a ballot tracking system as well, few states where this election will actually be decided offer that.

Absolutely. If you can go to a shop or store, you can get your ass to the polls. Unless you are really at risk for some reason (but then you are not going to the stores, either).

You betcha! Plus, I'll be voting early — there is a location near me, even closer than my assigned polling place. I love early voting.

My whole state is vote by mail. There is an official poll drop box about a block closer than the local post office.

I haven't been in a building that wasn't my house since March. [EDIT: forgot I cat-sit one weekend for someone, whoops] I have pre-existing conditions that make me cautious as hell. I'll be putting stamps on my ballot so it goes first class, and tracking online.

Bingo!!! Some of us haven't seen the inside of a store, a classroom, a workplace, or any enclosed public space for that matter, since March.

My state supplies an envelope with first class postage.

This is my plan as well. I've tried to decipher the code to voting but so far, never had. I did it one year and I was practically the only one there. The next time, I repeated that, and it was jam packed. So its always been a crapshoot.

Last time, we took our daughter so she could "experience" it. The three of use waited in line for probably an hour. Not bad at all. BUT. in these pandemic times, I absolutely cannot imagine standing in that long line snaking back on itself in a small building for an hour.

Get absentee ballots and drop in the box at our county office is our plan, too.
We usually vote early, but husband has underlying conditions and just had back surgery so standing in a line for long periods is not in the cards.

if it is feasible, everyone able to do so should drive to their respective outside ballot box and drop off at town/city/county offices, hopefully located right outside the building. I would not trust the post office to deliver anything at the moment.

My plan too, we get automatic vote by mail ballots and I plan to hand deliver it to a drop box at a local library close to Oct 5th when we can start to return ballots. We also have ways to check that it's been received and processed.

I will absolutely be voting. If I can just drop my ballot off at the voting station, I will do that.

But there are very few things more important to me than making sure we do not live through another 4 years of this dumpster fire.

I’ve only had to wait more than ten minutes once and that was when Jesse “The Body” Ventura was running for governor. Our state routinely has the highest percentage of voters in presidential election years. Have fewer polling places and you will have fewer voters which is the Republican plan.
