Now ordinary Americans can say they have President Barack Obama’s phone number. Unlike Donald Trump who gave out a competitor’s number, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-KY), 44 is offering Americans a number to use during these last six weeks of the voting season.
President Obama asked us to text him about how we plan to vote. He sent his number through a text-based platform Community. This lets public figures text their followers directly by city or one-on-one.
‘All right, let’s try something new. If you’re in the United States, send me a text at 773-365-9687 — I want to hear how you’re doing, what’s on your mind, and how you’re planning on voting this year. I’ll be in touch from time to time to share what’s on my mind, too.’
President Obama gives people a comforting offer, which is important, even as Trump threatens to steal the election. POTUS has been saying the election is rigged unless he wins. One of those heads I win, tails you lose situations.
But there is something people can do if they want to take the country back from a wanna-be dictator who has been following Moscow’s playbook. We can vote early by mail in most states. Or we can vote early in person, but only if we can do so safely, and the earlier the safer.
The coronavirus pandemic has taken 202,942 of our loved ones, and this deadly disease has changed people’s lives in ways that are totally different including voting.
Now, people can follow the path of their vote, much like tracking a package, from their state’s webpage.
The Washington Post reported that a full 84 percent of American voters will be able to vote by mail in this voting season. The way that works is that around 44 million will receive automatically-mailed applications to get their voting ballot, which they fill out and mail back in. Plus, 51 million get their actual voting ballot by mail.
Many states accept mail-in votes. Check yours for more details.
