I mailed in my ballot on late Wednesday, 23, 2020 and my ballot arrived at the election office on late Friday, September 25, 2020. The mail-in process took two or three days the most. I could have placed my ballot in a drop box at an early absentee location, but I wanted to see if mail-in works. It is still safe and secured to vote by mail in Virginia; however, vote in person if you can. Vote early and get your family and friends to vote. Make democracy great again.
When Trump declared that he won’t commit to a peaceful transition of power if he loses, that is the test of our democracy. We don’t have to wait for four more years to see if democracy will die. If Biden wins on November 3rd, we will see right away if Trump has absolute power or not. I still strongly believe that the Secret Service and the military will kick his ass out if he loses, but we’ll see.
