    From the article.
    Infectious disease expert says it'll be safe to cast ballots in person if voters follow social distancing guidelines

    National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Dr. Anthony Fauci said this week there is “no reason” Americans can’t vote in person for the 2020 presidential election, so long as votersfollow proper social distancing guidelines amid the coronavirus pandemic.


    “I think if carefully done, according to the guidelines, there’s no reason that I can see why that not be the case,” Fauci told ABC News this week. “If you go and wear a mask, if you observe the physical distancing, and don’t have a crowded situation, there’s no reason why shouldn’t be able to do that.”

    Of course! We voted at a school. Put on a mask, go vote, drop it in a locked and sealed big container. Piece of cake! :oldthumbsup:

    Of course, it would be safe IF the all the guidelines were followed but we already know that people will not follow those guidelines. They haven't yet so why think they would in this situation. Are they going to wear gloves when their touching the machines, are the machines going to be cleaned between each voter touching them? There's a lot of IF there.

    He also said...
    Fauci added that individuals who are “compromised physically or otherwise” and who are not interested in physically going to the polls on Election Day, can use mail-in voting.

    ...which can easily be done.

    So now let's watch how fast Dr. Fauci can go from patron saint of all self-styled "science believers" to nothing more than yesterday's news. ;) ;)

    I don't know about you but.. when we shop we stand in line to check out.. and there are many other check outs. People all wearing masks and no one has ever came down with the virus in our huge walmart store.

    So.. yeah so I also don't see why we can't go in and vote. I just read today where some curb side mail-in vote boxes are being taken. How 1-5 mail in votes have been rejected as fraud.

    ...or we could all just get a ballot in the mail and mail it in...unless President Trump and his Postmaster General destroy the post office before people get a chance to vote of course.

    Of course! Mail in ballots how the Dem's want to do it is so they can cheat. Just like "harvesting votes". What a sham. :sick:

    ...I'm curious how you would know if they did or didn't come down with something? Is there a sign somewhere in the store "We've gone "X" days without anyone coming down with Covide."?


    Are you or a loved one in a bracket that is particularly at risk if exposed to Covide? I ask because while you might not have a problem that doesn't mean others don't.
