The last game of President Trump: Breaking the coup attempt of the Democratic Party and the enemy of the country
The closer you get to the election day (November 3), you can feel the heat from all sides surrounded the ballot box, from the Democratic Party's push to vote by mail to the application of the military to the election. or not? It can be said that President Trump is facing a lot of pitfalls of the righteous "enemy" in the heart of the country.
But as a "warrior" of difficult space, it can be said that the current decisions and statements of President Trump have pushed "the opponent" into the situation ... do not know where to go. 2020: The Democratic Party's "n" coup attempt
In February 2020, after many failed "coups" since Trump entered the White House (January 2017), Democrats and other underground State forces plotted to "oust" President Trump. out of the White House with a "farce" or "farce", and it ultimately failed miserably.
When the "tricks" are applied based on both "subjective and objective" factors such as the Wuhan virus, shutting down the economy, destroying riot, abolishing the police ... counterproductive, more precise. is a huge failure again, now the Democratic "rulers" are openly talking about staging a "coup".
Starting with statements from the US Department of Defense to quietly guide public opinion that the military will not obey the orders of the President. All of the above statements are from former generals - most of them are those who served under former President Barack Obama, and helped "spread" by Big Media to the American public. In July 2018, CNN once "revealed" that a series of generals in the Trump administration were disobeying his requests. And CNN, New York Times ... try to "illustrate" so that the American people believe that the President of the United States cannot afford to become the most powerful man in the world. (first)
CNN opened up, Defense Secretary James Mattis - then among those "disobedient" top officials - is said to have made disparaging comments on President Trump on matters related to Syria and North Korea, with the comments "Mr. Trump understands these issues at the level of an elementary school student".
US Joint Chiefs of Staff Vice Chairman John Hyten, who is responsible for America's top nuclear command, said he opposes President Trump's order on a nuclear strike if that is " illegal". As for CNBC, incumbent Defense Secretary Mark Esper opposes the introduction of the Resurrection Act - allowing President Trump to deploy US troops in active service - in response to civil unrest caused by Antifa, Black Lives Matter caused in major cities across the US in May 2020. (2) As the riots intensified by domestic terrorist groups, with the "help" of the Democratic governors run earlier in June, Defense Secretary Mark Esper declared publicly announced in the media that the President should not invoke the Resurrection Act.
The left-wing media massively released this information, simultaneously interpreting and dissecting the Secretary of Defense's message: “Mr. President, don't tell us to do it, because we won't, And he knows what will happen after that.
All these "tricks" of the left-wing media have "breathed relay" for candidate Joe Biden to confidently assert to Fox News that the military will "escort [Trump] from the White House with an official dispatch." great ”if the president refuses to leave office. And yet, former Vice President Al Gore (under the Bill Clinton administration) also publicly agreed with this view of Joe Biden. (3)
You may think that this is just a "joking" comment of a "patient" with dementia, and of a "hideout" who always offers "renaissance" campaign policies to America. from inside the basement of the house he is in.
But Democrats are not accidentally "innocent" as you think. They have a methodical strategy to "brainwash" the American people step by step before "coup", even for Mr. Joe Biden "doze" to say innocuous statements as above. Democrats are not accidentally "innocent" as you think. They have a methodical strategy to "brainwash" the American people step by step before "coup". (Getty)
It is no coincidence that the Washington Post recently (September 3) published an article titled: "What's the worst that could happen ..." The article publicly outlined a scenario, in which "Trump won," the Democrats desperate and vice versa. (4)
They purposely leaked a summer story about a meeting of about 100 Democrats who were former "anti-Trump" Republicans and other underground powers. (following the devilish trend of billionaire George Soros) together "play the lottery" - outlined different options and results in the 2020 election.
The end result is an absolute victory of the current President Trump. However, Bill Clinton's former White House Chief of Staff John Podesta (who plays Joe Biden) refused to give in, pressuring states that Trump had won the Democratic nomination for the main vote. formula of the Electoral College, and is confident that the military will take care of the rest. (5) This
deliberately "leaked" report shows that, if there is "dispute" from the post-election tally, then "technocratic solutions, courts and dependence on elites comply by standards is not the answer ”. Which it promises, what will happen after the November elections will be "a street fight, not a war of riot.
The underground powers and Democrats have outlined a bold plan to topple President Trump if he is re-elected. (Getty)
That means Big Media has "confirmed" to the American public that the possibility of post-election rioting (if President Trump is re-elected) will occur. Add two other baselines that can't be ignored.
The first data is that on August 11, Representatives Elissa Slotkin (Michigan) and Mikie Sherrill (New Jersey) wrote an open letter to General Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. In the letter, two Democrats urged General Mark Milley to deploy the 82nd Airborne Division to "escort" President Trump out of the Oval Office at 12:01 p.m. on January 20, 2021 for Joe Biden to "continue. The White House. (6)
The letter is the most obvious answer to the Democratic conspiracy right after candidate Joe Biden offered his "idea": If President Trump loses in the 2020 election (and if he refuses to give in ), then the Democrats may have to "ask" the military to escort him out of the White House.
The second data is that just about a month later, Hillary Clinton publicly declared that Joe Biden should not give in to the election "under any circumstances". (7) This does not sound like the "rhetoric" of a great politician, of a major political party.
All the above facts show that the Democrats are once again planning to "coup" President Donald Trump even if he wins over Joe Biden in the 2020 election.
Why Big Media and the Citizen Party Owner openly conspired "coup"?
The answer is simple, because the Deep State forces know that, for this coup "conspiracy" to succeed, it must not seem like a conspiracy. And at all times, wherever they are, they need to instill in the minds of the American people and the world public that, illegally removing President Trump from his term is partly due to the "fault" of yourself: Fascist dictator, entrenched power etc and so forth
They "brainwash" the American people not to mind Joe Biden's "extravagant" statement, that President Trump will refuse to leave the White House when he believed he had won legally. But what they want to emphasize through the "firm" statement of Hillary Clinton that: Joe Biden should not lose under any circumstances.
The focus of the Democratic Party's coup "conspiracy" is by all means to exaggerate the risk of pandemic Wuhan virus, with the help of CDC, Big Tech, Big Media, Big Pharma to stop the people. The United States voted directly, which in turn led to voting by mail. This is a form to create conditions for Democrats to cheat votes and "buy time" to count votes.
The Deep State powers know that in order for this coup "plot" to succeed, it must not act like a conspiracy.
In early September, the Hawkfish analysis firm (backed Joe Biden) announced that there was a chance that President Trump would win a landslide match on election night (November 3), but could lose. after the Democrats tally their mail ballots.
Hawkfish's director, Josh Mendelsohn, said a possible scenario when President Trump holds a 408-130 electoral ballot on election night, but has only 15% of the vote. by mail is checked. But after all the votes were counted, the company predicted Joe Biden "eventually won a big, 334-204 win."
Mr. Mendelsohn said: “When every legitimate vote is checked and we reach the last day, which is the day after Election Day, reality shows what happened on the exact election night. as such. Looks like Donald Trump took the lead, and he basically won't win when every vote counts. "
Meanwhile, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg also said that Americans have to get used to thinking that the election results may take "weeks" to be confirmed after the vote (November 3), and "status "Civil unrest is possible."
Twitter announced that they will delete any tweet declaring victory before the election results are confirmed. Meaning Twitter indirectly confirmed, the platform would prevent President Trump's supporters from challenging the legitimacy of any delay in announcing winners.
The worst case scenario will result in some states having ambiguous votes. Then a fierce dispute will happen to the point where no one can accurately declare the winner. Of course, then a whole system of Underground State behind "back", will help Democrats declare Joe Biden final victory.
America "runs out" if Joe Biden and Democrats win.
As President Trump once warned, if Joe Biden wins, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) will take over America. At the same time, many observers also found that America, under the leadership of Joe Biden, would follow a socialist model.
This should come as no surprise, given that Joe Biden has a close "history", with the CCP leaders, openly downplaying the threat from China as well as his "demographic" campaigning policies. always attaching special importance to high taxes, supporting abortion, similar to the socialist democratic model.
The dangerous thing is, if Joe Biden and the Democrats somehow "take over" the White House in this 2020 election, they will change the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights, by canceling the Second Amendment. 2 (allowing Americans the right to own guns), opening up the border so that millions of illegal immigrants enter the United States, causing job "bleeding" and chaos.
At the same time, Democrats will keep all political dissidents - true Americans - silent. Under the mighty power of the Underground State, opposition Americans, patriotic Americans, and traditional rightists will be tightly censored.
Believers, Christians will be intimidated, beaten, and even executed by domestic terrorist groups such as Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and even executed, whose law (of the Democratic Party) will protect them in a favorable way. ethnic minorities. All Christian speeches will be "criminalized", and the Bible will be outlawed.
America is embraced by Marxist left-wing ideology. The riots over the past three months in the United States have demonstrated an ever darker outlook after the election, and show that the extreme left is a frantic, authoritarian, anti-American "sect."
The radical left "nurtured" and activated by the mainstream media, launched a violent communist revolution against America's values ​​of freedom and democracy.
Big Media, Big Tech has demonstrated dangerous lawlessness by censoring all speeches online, protesting the radical liberal's psychotic delusions. The ultimate purpose of this underworld is: Full power to rule, eliminate police and censor people with opposing views.
In the future, America is no longer a shore of Freedom, but becomes a country like the country the CCP is running: Disrespecting the law and upholding the "law of the forest". Every American election from now on will be easily manipulated, stolen, cheated, or altered with violence by leftists who hate America, and despise all Americans who love. True water.
President Trump - lonely warrior: "Quick quenching" violence
Of course, all the above actions are prevented by President Donald Trump.
The Politico newspaper reported that on September 10, President Trump threatened to "quell ... very quickly" the riots on election night (November 3), if the Democrats were dissatisfied. Street after his victory. (8)
The remarks were made in an interview with Fox News host Jeanine Pirro, in which President Trump was asked how he would react to riots if he was declared the winner. on November 3. (9)
We will take them down very quickly if they do. We have the right to do that. We have the power to do it, if we want to… "(Getty)
"We will take them down very quickly if they do," replied the President. We have the right to do that. We have the power to do it, if we want to ... Look, it's called rebellion. We just send, and we do it, very easily. I mean, it's very easy. I don't want to do it because there is no reason, but if we have to do so, we will do it and solve the problem within minutes ”.
President Trump appears to be referring to the National Emergency Act - a law dating back to 1807 - that allows the President to deploy troops in the country for enforcement in certain emergencies. In other words, President Trump is declaring that he will deploy his army to end the rebellions.
There have been many analyzes and comments after this statement of President Trump. One of them is that President Trump will introduce the Resurrection Act shortly after the election. This allows the President to invoke the executive powers of the Fourteenth Amendment, in which paragraph 3 states:
“Anyone who is a member of Congress, or an official of the United States, or a member of a state legislature, or an administrative or judicial official of any state has made a declaration. o swear to support the Constitution of the United States but participate in revolts or rebellions against the Constitution or assist or lie in enemies, cannot be a senator or a deputy in Congress, or a representative voters to elect the President and Vice President, or in charge of any civil or military agency of the United States or of a certain state. But Congress can with 2/3 votes of two-thirds of the members of each House to reject the above prohibition. (From vi.wikisource) (10)
The Fourteenth Amendment was approved in 1868, shortly after the Civil War. President Trump could use this Amendment to order the arrest of a series of traitors, while stripping Electoral College votes from states participating in an overt revolt against the United Nations. USA.
That means President Trump has the power to remove the powers of governors, mayors, judges, lawmakers or military leaders who have granted "aid or commissar" to the anti-insurgent / rebellion. back to the United States.
That also means Democrats Gavin Newsom (California), Kate Brown (Oregon), Jay Inslee (Washington) and Andrew Cuomo (New York), and many left-wing mayors like Ted Wheeler (Portland), Lori Lightfoot (Chicago) and Bill de Blasio of (New York City) will be stripped of power.
President Trump will likely declare first that an illegal nationwide rebellion is in progress, and then deploy troops to quell the riots and restore the rule of law.
Extreme violence, and anarchy in Democratic-run states like this one, and likely to get even more intense shortly after the election, will give President Trump a rationale. it was justifiable for him to declare sending troops to these rebellious states.
u The 14th Judgment will allow President Trump to deprive mayors, governors, and MPs of the Democratic Party if riots do break out. (Getty)
This was not an act of "martial law" because President Trump remained at the helm of the country, and America was not run by a military general. Rather, the military is being deployed as a tool of the President to crack down on illegal rebellions.
Radical leftists are frantically burning, destroying, dismantling everything of America, from business to historic sites, harassing electoral sites, and deconstructing the foundation. the republic to replace the totalitarian socialist regime - will be abolished.
Of course, once the riots were abolished, this military deployment would cease, and the United States returned to a civil society. However, Underground State forces like Big Media and Big Tech will not sit and sit still once President Trump starts the Resurrection Act.
This "insane" faction will accuse President Trump of being a "military dictator" as they have long been attributed to him.At the same time, the Underground State forces will call on leftists to protest and rise. teach in the way that billionaire George Soros's Open Society Fund typically funds "color revolutions" that overthrow governments around the world.
His Open Society Foundation and other coalition organizations are the sponsors, supporters of the Democratic Party and radical liberal leftists, promoting racial wars, riots. , violence and revolution against America.
George Soros - the man behind many revolutions, riots overthrew the incumbent government worldwide, and profited to get rich through endless wars. (Getty)
George Eliason, investigative reporters of Americans now live in Ukraine, has connected the signs related to administration before Barack Obama with a wicked conspiracy to disturb and disrupt civil society America. This conspiracy is not only aimed at "overthrowing" President Trump from the White House, but also wants to open up a form of government in the line of atheistic communist socialism.
George Eliason released a report alleging that foreign terrorists were brought into the United States by conspiracy by former President Obama and CIA Director John Brennan. This shocking report indicates that the Obama administration "imported" foreign terrorists into the US in preparation for the Antifa / Black Lives Matter uprising, which caused chaos in US cities. (11)
So in recent months, domestic terrorists have been so strong that they shot and killed those who support President Trump, bombed gas bombs and destroyed federal government buildings. and attack the police. This is not difficult to predict that it will inevitably happen - to an even more intense extent - if President Trump is re-elected.
President Trump fully realized that a war against America had begun, and he decided to act decisively to protect America by "manipulating" the enemy when he declared that he would use legal military force and all executive powers of a commander in chief of the United States of America.
President Trump knew what was about to happen, and he molded the enemy by threatening to use the military to completely suppress uprising. (Getty)
President Trump's high-handed move
On August 23, just a day before the Republican National Congress began, President Trump held a major event welcoming the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for allowing emergency use. patient's plasma level COVID-19 was healthy during treatment. A few hours later, it was reported that the Trump administration was considering speeding up the vaccine test to get it and roll it out before the November election.
After voicing out that Democrats could fake votes if they passed the election. Letter, President Trump continued to shock with a statement related to vaccines: "The underground State elements at the FDA are trying to prevent companies from testing vaccines. They are looking to delay vaccines until after election day. 3-11 ", Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter August 22.
According to Bloomberg, the Trump administration is working to dramatically cut the time it takes to develop the coronavirus vaccine, with the goal of giving it enough doses for most Americans by the end of the year. Known as "Warp Speed", the campaign will bring together private pharmaceutical companies, government agencies and the military to try to cut the vaccine development time to eight months. (12)
In a matter of weeks In the past, the Trump administration has actively promoted the supply of vaccines on November 1 across the United States. (13) So why choose November 1 to provide vaccines? The answer is: November 1 is important because it is only two days away from the election (November 3). The Warp Speed ​​campaign on the surface involved vaccines, but in reality President Trump was not really "on the hook" with Big Pharma - home to the notorious vaccine manufacturing corporations. And President Trump has relied on this campaign to preserve national security by sending troops in every major city in the United States in an attempt to restore the rule of law, arrest leftist terrorists and traitors.
On March 27, 2020, President Trump issued an executive order that allowed the Pentagon to mobilize US veterans and members of the reserve force, and the National Guard returned to work. Permanent reinforcement for soldiers participating in the Army's COVID-19 pandemic campaign. (14)
The Individual Ready Reserve includes veterans, and members of the Mobilization Reserve, who are considered out of the military and rarely re-convened. These reserves will be deployed as part of the national defense against the Antifa terrorist groups, the Black Lives Matter. All of this could explain why President Trump pushed for the supply of vaccines on November 1, in which the military was sent to the country to "distribute" the vaccine.
This appears to be an extremely daring plan, "based on" the scheming brains of extremist left-wing Democracy - as a way of distributing troops across the country on election day, to prepare for application of the Resurrection Act immediately following elections.
Simply put, President Trump is a President of Law and Order.
Along with the continuous wave of American Police Associations voicing support for President Donald Trump, it can be said that the Democrats are on the same path. In other words, the Democrats were sticking him on his back, and to put it more literally, they were dancing the "music" exactly as the "talented composer": Donald Trump.

2020.09.17 21:43 flyinmacaronimonster Absentee and In-Person Voting in Milwaukee

Hey Milwaukeeans!
Election Season officially begins for you as absentee ballots start going out to all registered voters that have requested a ballot, starting today.
Before I go any further, if there is one key piece of advice for you if you are voting absentee, it's that you DO NOT MAIL BACK YOUR BALLOT, and instead drop it off. There is a genuinely good reason for this, and I will explain further down below.
If you have not registered to vote yet, please do so right now. You can do so using this link:
https://myvote.wi.gov/en-US/VoterRegistration
Wednesday, October 14 is the deadline to register to vote online and by mail. You can also register to vote in-person at your municipal clerk's office during business hours up until 5:00pm or end of business on Friday, October 30. For City of Milwaukee voters, you should call the clerk's office if you want to register in person, although I would recommend finding an alternate method of voter registration. If you live outside of the City of Milwaukee, in any one of the three WOW (Waukesha, Ozaukee, Washington) counties, you should do the same, and contact your municipal clerk.
https://city.milwaukee.gov/cityclerk
https://www.waukeshacounty.gov/countyclerk/
https://www.co.ozaukee.wi.us/162/Election-Information
https://www.co.washington.wi.us/264
Wisconsin is also one of a few states that also allows for same-day voter registration on Election Day, so, if you have forgotten to register to vote by Friday, October 30, you can still register to vote at your polling place on Election Day, and then subsequently vote in-person.
https://myvote.wi.gov/en-us/VoterDeadlines
IF YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT MACHINE HACKING, KEEP IN MIND THAT WISCONSIN DOES NOT USE VOTING MACHINES IN THEIR ELECTIONS AS OF 2020, EXCEPT FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES, AND ALSO KEEP IN MIND THAT THESE MACHINES WILL HAVE A PAPER TRAIL. In Milwaukee, and the WOW counties, ballot marking devices (a bit different than a voting "machine") will be used by people with disabilities, but for the majority of voters (i.e. ones without a disability), hand-marked paper ballots will be used.

https://verifiedvoting.org/verifie#mode/navigate/map/ppEquip/mapType/normal/yea2020/state/55/county/89
If you are voting in-person or are a first-time absentee voter, or, if you are requesting an absentee ballot and have updated your name or address, you will need to provide a photo ID with your absentee ballot request. The reason why you need to show ID with an absentee ballot request if you have had a name or address change is because you essentially need to re-register, and every time you register or re-register to vote, you will need to provide a photo ID with your absentee ballot request.
In terms of Photo ID in general, Wisconsin has a very strict photo ID law. Most photo IDs (like a driver's license) need to be up to date as of November 6, 2018. If you need to update your driver's license or other photo ID, please do so now or as soon as possible. Some photo IDs must be unexpired, but most do not need to be.
Here's a site that explains the types of voter ID that are acceptable:
https://bringit.wi.gov/do-i-have-right-photo-id
If you have registered to vote and have not requested an absentee ballot, request an absentee ballot if you would like. Again, remember: if you have never requested an absentee ballot in Wisconsin, or, if you have updated your name or address, you will need a photo ID to accompany your absentee ballot request.
https://elections.wi.gov/voters/absentee
https://elections.wi.gov/sites/default/files/gab_forms/4/el_121_application_for_absentee_ballot_2018_06_f_21413.pdf
https://myvote.wi.gov/en-US/RequestAnAbsenteeBallot
IF YOU ARE VOTING IN-PERSON INSTEAD OF ABSENTEE-BY-MAIL, SKIP TO THE IF YOU ARE VOTING IN PERSON SECTION BELOW
Once you have requested and have received your absentee ballot, READ THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY, fill out your ballot, and then MAKE SURE TO SIGN YOUR NAME IN THE CORRECT PLACE. As well, YOU WILL NEED 1 SIGNATURE WITNESS to sign the envelope. A witness can be anybody over 18 who is not running for public office.
If you are worried about your ballot being rejected due to a mismatched signature, do not worry as they will not reject it outright without letting you know, and without giving you a chance to fix it, HOWEVER this process needs to be done before polls close (8:00pm CT) on Election Day. Because of this, please make sure to avoid dropping off your ballot on Election Day if possible, and instead drop it off earlier, and preferably as early as possible.
https://elections.wi.gov/node/6797
Once you have done all that DO NOT MAIL BACK YOUR BALLOT. The real reason why is because Wisconsin makes it incredibly easy to return your absentee ballot. Wisconsin, like Michigan, administers their elections New England-style. In other words, each municipality is basically in charge of administering the election.
So, your MUNICIPAL (NOT county) clerk will be the ones sending out ballots, and your MUNICIPAL (NOT county) clerk's office will be the ones that your ballot will ultimately need to be returned to. This makes it easier to drop off your ballot, as you will not need to go far to drop it off.
When sending back your ballot, it is important to note that you need to drop it off in the MUNICIPALITY that you are voting in, NOT in the county. For example, if you live in the City of Milwaukee, you will need to drop it off within the city limits of Milwaukee, and not anywhere else in Milwaukee County.
In terms of dropping off your absentee ballot, there are 4 ways to do so:
1) Drop it off at a drop-box in your municipality
I have been doing research on the extent to which ballot drop-boxes exist in Wisconsin. I have found that, in nearly all cities, villages, and towns there is at least 1 drop-box in any given municipality. In the City of Milwaukee, there will be 15 secure drop-boxes all over the city. As well, virtually every municipality in Milwaukee and the WOW Counties (Waukesha, Ozaukee, Washington Counties) have a drop box within their municipality, usually at the city/town/village hall. Use these drop-boxes as the primary option of ballot drop-off. Contact your municipal clerk for more details about where your drop box is located.
2) Hand-deliver it in-person to your municipal clerk's office.
It is highly recommended that you avoid returning your ballot in-person if you are in the City of Milwaukee, and instead use a drop box. If you insist on using this option, contact the City Clerk's office in Advance. Same with the cities in Milwaukee County and also the WOW Counties.
3) Return to a polling site during the Early Voting period.
You can also return your ballot to an early voting site. For the City of Milwaukee, Early Voting is held between Tuesday, October 20 and Sunday, November 1. Drive thru early voting may be available in some locations, which could possibly make it easier to drop off your ballot. As a side note, both Fiserv Arena downtown and Miller Park on the west end are being used as essentially massive early voting sites. Check the links below for early voting hours and dates in Milwaukee City and Milwaukee County. If you are in the WOW counties contact your municipal clerk for more details about early voting times.
4) Return to a polling site on Election Day.
This is also an option for dropping off your ballot, however it is more recommended that you drop it off earlier. Still, it is an option if need be.

https://www.co.ozaukee.wi.us/162/Election-Information
https://www.co.washington.wi.us/departments.iml?mdl=departments.mdl&ID=CLK
Generally speaking, you, and only you, should drop off your own ballot, however, if you cannot drop it off yourself, you can have somebody else that you trust drop it off for you. PLEASE DO NOT GIVE YOUR BALLOT TO ANYBODY WHO YOU DO NOT FULLY TRUST.
Ballots need to be returned by 8:00pm CT on Election Day.
For several reasons, including the fact that ballot drop-off is local, the fact that there is a drop-box or drop-off point in virtually every municipality, and also because there there are so many options for dropping off your ballot, Wisconsin is, in my opinion, one of the very easiest states to drop off your ballot, and is even up there with Oregon and Washington in terms of ease of dropping it off.
IF YOU ARE VOTING IN PERSON
If you want to vote in-person, it is recommended that you vote as early as possible.
For the City of Milwaukee, Early Voting is held between Tuesday, October 20 and Sunday, November 1. Drive thru early voting may be available in some locations. As a side note, both Fiserv Arena downtown and Miller Park on the west end are being used as essentially massive early voting sites. Check the links below for early voting hours and dates in Milwaukee City and Milwaukee County. If you are in the WOW counties contact your municipal clerk for more details about early voting times.
You may also vote in-person on Election Day, though it is recommended that you vote early if you are voting in person. Again, make sure you have your valid photo ID.

2020.09.17 20:50 flyinmacaronimonster Absentee and In-Person Voting in Wausau

Hey people of Wausau!
Election Season officially begins for you as absentee ballots start going out to all registered voters that have requested a ballot, starting today.
Before I go any further, if there is one key piece of advice for you if you are voting absentee, it's that you DO NOT MAIL BACK YOUR BALLOT, and instead drop it off. There is a genuinely good reason for this, and I will explain further down below.
If you have not registered to vote yet, please do so right now. You can do so using this link:
https://myvote.wi.gov/en-US/VoterRegistration
Wednesday, October 14 is the deadline to register to vote online and by mail. You can also register to vote in-person at your municipal clerk's office during business hours up until 5:00pm or end of business on Friday, October 30. For City of Wausau it will be between 8am and 4:30pm MON-FRI at the City Clerk's office at City Hall @ 407 Grant St in downtown Wausau. If you live outside of the City of Wausau in Marathon County, contact your municipal clerk's office for hours, or check the link below from the Wausau Daily Herald:
https://www.ci.wausau.wi.us/Services/Elections.aspx
https://www.wausaudailyherald.com/story/news/local/2020/09/15/wausau-elections-absentee-ballot-drop-off-locations/5752781002/ [WAUSAU CITY & MARATHON COUNTY BALLOT DROP-BOX LOCATIONS/EARLY VOTING (INCOMPLETE LIST; IF YOUR MUNICIPALITY IS NOT LISTED CONTACT YOUR MUNICIPAL CLERK FOR MORE DETAILS)]
Wisconsin is also one of a few states that also allows for same-day voter registration on Election Day, so, if you have forgotten to register to vote by Friday, October 30, you can still register to vote at your polling place on Election Day, and then subsequently vote in-person.
https://myvote.wi.gov/en-us/VoterDeadlines
IF YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT MACHINE HACKING, KEEP IN MIND THAT WISCONSIN DOES NOT USE VOTING MACHINES IN THEIR ELECTIONS AS OF 2020, EXCEPT FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES, AND ALSO KEEP IN MIND THAT THESE MACHINES WILL HAVE A PAPER TRAIL. In Marathon County, ballot marking devices (a bit different than a voting "machine") will be used by people with disabilities, but for the majority of voters (i.e. ones without a disability), hand-marked paper ballots will be used.
https://verifiedvoting.org/verifie#mode/navigate/map/ppEquip/mapType/normal/yea2020/state/55/county/73
If you are voting in-person or are a first-time absentee voter, or, if you are requesting an absentee ballot and have updated your name or address, you will need to provide a photo ID with your absentee ballot request. The reason why you need to show ID with an absentee ballot request if you have had a name or address change is because you essentially need to re-register, and every time you register or re-register to vote, you will need to provide a photo ID with your absentee ballot request.
In terms of Photo ID in general, Wisconsin has a very strict photo ID law. Most photo IDs (like a driver's license) need to be up to date as of November 6, 2018. If you need to update your driver's license or other photo ID, please do so now or as soon as possible. Some photo IDs must be unexpired, but most do not need to be.
Here's a site that explains the types of voter ID that are acceptable:
https://bringit.wi.gov/do-i-have-right-photo-id
If you have registered to vote and have not requested an absentee ballot, request an absentee ballot if you would like. Again, remember: if you have never requested an absentee ballot in Wisconsin, or, if you have updated your name or address, you will need a photo ID to accompany your absentee ballot request.

https://myvote.wi.gov/en-US/RequestAnAbsenteeBallot
IF YOU ARE VOTING IN-PERSON INSTEAD OF ABSENTEE-BY-MAIL, SKIP TO THE IF YOU ARE VOTING IN PERSON SECTION BELOW
Once you have requested and have received your absentee ballot, READ THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY, fill out your ballot, and then MAKE SURE TO SIGN YOUR NAME IN THE CORRECT PLACE. As well, YOU WILL NEED 1 SIGNATURE WITNESS to sign the envelope. A witness can be anybody over 18 who is not running for public office.
If you are worried about your ballot being rejected due to a mismatched signature, do not worry as they will not reject it outright without letting you know, and without giving you a chance to fix it, HOWEVER this process needs to be done before polls close (8:00pm CT) on Election Day. Because of this, please make sure to avoid dropping off your ballot on Election Day if possible, and instead drop it off earlier, and preferably as early as possible.
https://elections.wi.gov/node/6797
Once you have done all that DO NOT MAIL BACK YOUR BALLOT. The real reason why is because Wisconsin makes it incredibly easy to return your absentee ballot. Wisconsin, like Michigan, administers their elections New England-style. In other words, each municipality is basically in charge of administering the election.
So, your MUNICIPAL (NOT county) clerk will be the ones sending out ballots, and your MUNICIPAL (NOT county) clerk's office will be the ones that your ballot will ultimately need to be returned to. This makes it easier to drop off your ballot, as you will not need to go far to drop it off.

I have found that, in nearly all cities, villages, and towns there is at least 1 drop-box in any given municipality. In the City of Wausau, there will be 1 drop-box outside of City Hall at 407 Grant St. If you live outside of Wausau city limits, drop boxes will likely be available in almost all municipalities, although it is also possible that you may need to arrange a drop-off with your municipal clerk if you live in a smaller and more rural township, though, again, it varies by municipality. Check out the link from the Wausau Daily Herald Below or contact your municipal clerk for more details.
2) Hand-deliver it in-person to your municipal clerk's office.
The City Clerk's office in Wausau will be open from 8am-4:30pm MON-FRI at City Hall, through to Election Day for ballot drop off. Hours will likely be extended on Election Day. This is still another option for you to drop off your ballot, however, it is more recommended that you drop off your ballot off at the one of the two drop-box at City Hall. If you live outside of the City of Wausau, contact your municipal clerk's office for hours or check out the list below. Please be safe when returning it in-person to your municipal clerk's office.
3) Return to a polling site during the Early Voting period.
Early Voting in the City of Wausau is available every day from Tuesday, October 20 through to Friday, October 30, except for Sunday, October 25. You can drop off your ballot at the early voting site. Drive thru voting will be available on Friday, October 23 between 3pm-7pm and on Saturday, October 24 between 8am-3pm. For early voting outside of the city of Wausau in Marathon County, contact your municipal clerk's office for more details.
4) Return to a polling site on Election Day.
This is also an option for dropping off your ballot, however it is more recommended that you drop it off earlier. Still, it is an option if need be.

For several reasons, including the fact that ballot drop-off is local, the fact that there is a drop-box or drop-off point in virtually every municipality, and also because there there are so many options for dropping off your ballot, Wisconsin is, in my opinion, one of the very easiest states to drop off your ballot, and is even up there with Oregon and Washington in terms of ease of dropping it off.

IF YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT MACHINE HACKING, KEEP IN MIND THAT WISCONSIN DOES NOT USE VOTING MACHINES IN THEIR ELECTIONS AS OF 2020, EXCEPT FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES, AND ALSO KEEP IN MIND THAT THESE MACHINES WILL HAVE A PAPER TRAIL. In Sheboygan County, ballot marking devices (a bit different than a voting "machine") will be used by people with disabilities, but for the majority of voters (i.e. ones without a disability), hand-marked paper ballots will be used.

If you are voting in-person or are a first-time absentee voter, or, if you are requesting an absentee ballot and have updated your name or address, you will need to provide a photo ID with your absentee ballot request. The reason why you need to show ID with an absentee ballot request if you have had a name or address change is because you essentially need to re-register, and every time you register or re-register to vote, you will need to provide a photo ID with your absentee ballot request.
In terms of Photo ID in general, Wisconsin has a very strict photo ID law. Most photo IDs (like a driver's license) need to be up to date as of November 6, 2018. If you need to update your driver's license or other photo ID, please do so now or as soon as possible. Some photo IDs must be unexpired, but most do not need to be.
Here's a site that explains the types of voter ID that are acceptable:
https://bringit.wi.gov/do-i-have-right-photo-id
If you have registered to vote and have not requested an absentee ballot, request an absentee ballot if you would like. Again, remember: if you have never requested an absentee ballot in Wisconsin, or, if you have updated your name or address, you will need a photo ID to accompany your absentee ballot request.

IF YOU ARE VOTING IN-PERSON INSTEAD OF ABSENTEE-BY-MAIL, SKIP TO THE IF YOU ARE VOTING IN PERSON SECTION BELOW
Once you have requested and have received your absentee ballot, READ THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY, fill out your ballot, and then MAKE SURE TO SIGN YOUR NAME IN THE CORRECT PLACE. As well, YOU WILL NEED 1 SIGNATURE WITNESS to sign the envelope. A witness can be anybody over 18 who is not running for public office.
If you are worried about your ballot being rejected due to a mismatched signature, do not worry as they will not reject it outright without letting you know, and without giving you a chance to fix it, HOWEVER this process needs to be done before polls close (8:00pm CT) on Election Day. Because of this, please make sure to avoid dropping off your ballot on Election Day if possible, and instead drop it off earlier, and preferably as early as possible.
https://elections.wi.gov/node/6797
Once you have done all that DO NOT MAIL BACK YOUR BALLOT. The real reason why is because Wisconsin makes it incredibly easy to return your absentee ballot. Wisconsin, like Michigan, administers their elections New England-style. In other words, each municipality is basically in charge of administering the election.
So, your MUNICIPAL (NOT county) clerk will be the ones sending out ballots, and your MUNICIPAL (NOT county) clerk's office will be the ones that your ballot will ultimately need to be returned to. This makes it easier to drop off your ballot, as you will not need to go far to drop it off.
When sending back your ballot, it is important to note that you need to drop it off in the MUNICIPALITY that you are voting in, NOT in the county. For example, if you live in the City of Sheboygan, you will need to drop it off within the city limits of Sheboygan, and not anywhere else in Sheboygan County.
In terms of dropping off your absentee ballot, there are 4 ways to do so:
1) Drop it off at a drop-box in your municipality
I have been doing research on the extent to which ballot drop-boxes exist in Wisconsin. I have found that, in nearly all cities, villages, and towns there is at least 1 drop-box in any given municipality. In the City of Sheboygan, there will be 2 drop-boxes: 1 outside of City Hall @ 828 Center Ave downtown, and 1 other drop-box outside of Meade Library @ 710 N 8th St, also downtown. If you live outside of Sheboygan city limits, in Sheboygan County, drop boxes will likely be available in almost all municipalities, although it is also possible that you may need to arrange a drop-off with your municipal clerk if you live in a smaller and more rural township, though, again, it varies by municipality. Check out the link below, or contact your municipal clerk for more details if your municipality is not on the list.
2) Hand-deliver it in-person to your municipal clerk's office.
The City Clerk's office in Sheboygan @ 828 Center Ave, suite 103, will be open from 8:30am-4:30pm MON-FRI at City Hall, through to Election Day for ballot drop off. Hours will likely be extended on Election Day. This is still another option for you to drop off your ballot, however, it is more recommended that you drop off your ballot off at the one of the two drop-boxes downtown, at City Hall or at the library. If you live outside of the City of Sheboygan, in Sheboygan County, check out the list below contact your municipal clerk's office for hours. Please be safe when returning it in-person to your municipal clerk's office.
3) Return to a polling site during the Early Voting period.
Early Voting in the City of Sheboygan is available at the City Clerk's office (828 Center Ave, Suite 103) Tuesday, October 20 through to Friday, October 30, open all days except for Sunday, October 25. You can drop off your ballot here as well. For early voting outside of the city of Sheboygan, contact your municipal clerk for more details.
4) Return to a polling site on Election Day.
This is also an option for dropping off your ballot, however it is more recommended that you drop it off earlier. Still, it is an option if need be.

Generally speaking, you, and only you, should drop off your own ballot, however, if you cannot drop it off yourself, you can have somebody else that you trust drop it off for you. PLEASE DO NOT GIVE YOUR BALLOT TO ANYBODY WHO YOU DO NOT FULLY TRUST.
Ballots need to be returned by 8:00pm CT on Election Day.
For several reasons, including the fact that ballot drop-off is local, the fact that there is a drop-box or drop-off point in virtually every municipality, and also because there there are so many options for dropping off your ballot, Wisconsin is, in my opinion, one of the very easiest states to drop off your ballot, and is even up there with Oregon and Washington in terms of ease of dropping it off.
IF YOU ARE VOTING IN PERSON
If you want to vote in-person, it is recommended that you vote as early as possible.

Hey people of Racine!
Election Season officially begins for you as absentee ballots start going out to all registered voters that have requested a ballot, starting today.
Before I go any further, if there is one key piece of advice for you if you are voting absentee, it's that you DO NOT MAIL BACK YOUR BALLOT, and instead drop it off. There is a genuinely good reason for this, and I will explain further down below.
If you have not registered to vote yet, please do so right now. You can do so using this link:
https://myvote.wi.gov/en-US/VoterRegistration
Wednesday, October 14 is the deadline to register to vote online and by mail. You can also register to vote in-person at your municipal clerk's office on during business hours up until 5:00pm or end of business on Friday, October 30. For City of Racine voters: 8am-4:30pm MON-FRI at the City Clerk's Office at the City Clerk & Treasurer's Office at City Hall @ 730 Washington Ave, Room 103 in downtown Racine. If you live outside of the City of Racine in Racine County, contact your clerk's office for hours.

2020.09.17 18:52 flyinmacaronimonster Absentee and In-Person Voting in La Crosse

Hey people of La Crosse!
Election Season officially begins for you as absentee ballots start going out to all registered voters that have requested a ballot, starting today.
Before I go any further, if there is one key piece of advice for you if you are voting absentee, it's that you DO NOT MAIL BACK YOUR BALLOT, and instead drop it off. There is a genuinely good reason for this, and I will explain further down below.
If you have not registered to vote yet, please do so right now. You can do so using this link:
https://myvote.wi.gov/en-US/VoterRegistration
Wednesday, October 14 is the deadline to register to vote online and by mail. For City of La Crosse voters, THE CITY HALL WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. According to the city clerk's website: "Election related documents including voter registration forms, absentee ballot requests or voted absentee ballots may be deposited in the GREEN drop box on the north side of City Hall." (@ 400 La Crosse St in Downtown La Crosse.) It is unclear when city hall will be open to the public again. If you want to confirm availability over the course of the next month, contact the city clerk's office. If you live outside of the City of LaCrosse, check the link below, or contact your municipal clerk's office for hours.
https://www.cityoflacrosse.org/your-government/departments/city-clerk/elections-and-voting [FOR THE CITY OF LA CROSSE]
https://www.lacrossecounty.org/countyclerk/elections.asp [FOR LA CROSSE COUNTY]
Wisconsin is also one of a few states that also allows for same-day voter registration on Election Day, so, if you have forgotten to register to vote by Friday, October 30, you can still register to vote at your polling place on Election Day, and then subsequently vote in-person.
https://myvote.wi.gov/en-us/VoterDeadlines
IF YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT MACHINE HACKING, KEEP IN MIND THAT WISCONSIN DOES NOT USE VOTING MACHINES IN THEIR ELECTIONS AS OF 2020, EXCEPT FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES, AND ALSO KEEP IN MIND THAT THESE MACHINES WILL HAVE A PAPER TRAIL. In La Crosse County, ballot marking devices (a bit different than a voting "machine") will be used by people with disabilities, but for the majority of voters (i.e. ones without a disability), hand-marked paper ballots will be used.
https://verifiedvoting.org/verifie#mode/navigate/map/ppEquip/mapType/normal/yea2020/state/55/county/63
If you are voting in-person or are a first-time absentee voter, or, if you are requesting an absentee ballot and have updated your name or address, you will need to provide a photo ID with your absentee ballot request. The reason why you need to show ID with an absentee ballot request if you have had a name or address change is because you essentially need to re-register, and every time you register or re-register to vote, you will need to provide a photo ID with your absentee ballot request.
In terms of Photo ID in general, Wisconsin has a very strict photo ID law. Most photo IDs (like a driver's license) need to be up to date as of November 6, 2018. If you need to update your driver's license or other photo ID, please do so now or as soon as possible. Some photo IDs must be unexpired, but most do not need to be.
Here's a site that explains the types of voter ID that are acceptable:
https://bringit.wi.gov/do-i-have-right-photo-id
If you have registered to vote and have not requested an absentee ballot, request an absentee ballot if you would like. Again, remember: if you have never requested an absentee ballot in Wisconsin, or, if you have updated your name or address, you will need a photo ID to accompany your absentee ballot request.

https://myvote.wi.gov/en-US/RequestAnAbsenteeBallot
IF YOU ARE VOTING IN-PERSON INSTEAD OF ABSENTEE-BY-MAIL, SKIP TO THE IF YOU ARE VOTING IN PERSON SECTION BELOW
Once you have requested and have received your absentee ballot, READ THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY, fill out your ballot, and then MAKE SURE TO SIGN YOUR NAME IN THE CORRECT PLACE. As well, YOU WILL NEED 1 SIGNATURE WITNESS to sign the envelope. A witness can be anybody over 18 who is not running for public office.
If you are worried about your ballot being rejected due to a mismatched signature, do not worry as they will not reject it outright without letting you know, and without giving you a chance to fix it, HOWEVER this process needs to be done before polls close (8:00pm CT) on Election Day. Because of this, please make sure to avoid dropping off your ballot on Election Day if possible, and instead drop it off earlier, and preferably as early as possible.
https://elections.wi.gov/node/6797
Once you have done all that DO NOT MAIL BACK YOUR BALLOT. The real reason why is because Wisconsin makes it incredibly easy to return your absentee ballot. Wisconsin, like Michigan, administers their elections New England-style. In other words, each municipality is basically in charge of administering the election.
So, your MUNICIPAL (NOT county) clerk will be the ones sending out ballots, and your MUNICIPAL (NOT county) clerk's office will be the ones that your ballot will ultimately need to be returned to. This makes it easier to drop off your ballot, as you will not need to go far to drop it off.
When sending back your ballot, it is important to note that you need to drop it off in the MUNICIPALITY that you are voting in, NOT in the county. For example, if you live in the City of La Crosse, you will need to drop it off within the city limits of La Crosse, and not anywhere else in La Crosse County.
In terms of dropping off your absentee ballot, there are 4 ways to do so:
1) Drop it off at a drop-box in your municipality
I have been doing research on the extent to which ballot drop-boxes exist in Wisconsin. I have found that, in nearly all cities, villages, and towns there is at least 1 drop-box in any given municipality. In the City of La Crosse, there will be 1 drop-box at City Hall (@ 400 La Crosse St in Downtown La Crosse) If you live outside of La Crosse city limits, drop boxes will likely be available in almost all municipalities. Check the link below for future updates or contact your municipal clerk for more details.
2) Hand-deliver it in-person to your municipal clerk's office.
LA CROSSE CITY HALL IS CLOSED, SO, AS FAR AS WHAT IS KNOWN, THIS OPTION REMAINS UNAVAILABLE FOR THE TIME BEING. It is unclear when city hall will re-open. If you live outside of the City of La Crosse, contact your municipal clerk's office for hours . Please be safe when returning it in-person to your municipal clerk's office.
3) Return to a polling site during the Early Voting period.
Early Voting in the City of La Crosse is open weekdays between Tuesday, October 20 and Friday, October 30. Early voting is scheduled to place at City Hall (@ 400 La Crosse St in Downtown La Crosse) between the hours of 8:30am and 5pm. If you live outside of the City of La Crosse, check out the link below or contact your municipal clerk's office for more details.
4) Return to a polling site on Election Day.
This is also an option for dropping off your ballot, however it is more recommended that you drop it off earlier. Still, it is an option if need be.
https://www.cityoflacrosse.org/your-government/departments/city-clerk/elections-and-voting [FOR THE CITY OF LA CROSSE]
https://www.lacrossecounty.org/countyclerk/elections.asp [FOR LA CROSSE COUNTY]
Generally speaking, you, and only you, should drop off your own ballot, however, if you cannot drop it off yourself, you can have somebody else that you trust drop it off for you. PLEASE DO NOT GIVE YOUR BALLOT TO ANYBODY WHO YOU DO NOT FULLY TRUST.
Ballots need to be returned by 8:00pm CT on Election Day.
For several reasons, including the fact that ballot drop-off is local, the fact that there is a drop-box or drop-off point in virtually every municipality, and also because there there are so many options for dropping off your ballot, Wisconsin is, in my opinion, one of the very easiest states to drop off your ballot, and is even up there with Oregon and Washington in terms of ease of dropping it off.
IF YOU ARE VOTING IN PERSON
If you want to vote in-person, it is recommended that you vote as early as possible.
Early Voting in the City of La Crosse is open weekdays between Tuesday, October 20 and Friday, October 30.

If you live outside of the City of La Crosse, check out the link below or contact your municipal clerk's office for more details.
You may also vote in-person on Election Day, though it is recommended that you vote early if you are voting in person. Again, make sure you have your valid photo ID.

For example, if you live in the City of Green Bay, you will need to drop it off within the city limits of Green Bay, and not anywhere else in Brown County.
In terms of dropping off your absentee ballot, there are 4 ways to do so:
(**NOTE: The following information will be for City of Green Bay residents only If you live outside of Green Bay city limits, refer to this guide for your individual city for drop off in your municipality: https://www.browncountywi.gov/departments/county-clerk/elections/absentee-voting-ballot-return-options-november-3-2020-fall-presidential-and-general-election/)
Special Note: The Ashwaubenon drop-box is not open during business hours, and is only open until start of business on November 2.
1) Drop it off at a drop-box in your municipality
In the City of Green Bay, there will be 5 drop-boxes: at least 1 at City Hall @ 100 N Jefferson St (currently located behind city hall), and 5 at other locations around the city [TBD].
2) Hand-deliver it in-person to your municipal clerk's office.
The City Clerk's office in Green Bay will be open from 8:30am-4:00pm MON-FRI at the City Hall @ 100 N Jefferson St through to Election Day for ballot drop off (THOUGH ACCESS MAY BE LIMITED AND MAY BE BY APPOINTMENT ONLY). Hours will likely be extended on Election Day. It is more recommended that you drop off your ballot off at one of the 5 drop-boxes instead.
3) Return to a polling site during the Early Voting period.
Early Voting in the City of Green Bay is open MON-SAT between Tuesday, October 20 and Saturday, October 31. You can drop it off then.
4) Return to a polling site on Election Day.
This is also an option for dropping off your ballot, however it is more recommended that you drop it off earlier. Still, it is an option if need be.

https://greenbaywi.gov/655/Election-Information
https://www.wbay.com/2020/09/17/green-bay-to-get-5-absentee-ballot-drop-boxes/
Generally speaking, you, and only you, should drop off your own ballot, however, if you cannot drop it off yourself, you can have somebody else that you trust drop it off for you. PLEASE DO NOT GIVE YOUR BALLOT TO ANYBODY WHO YOU DO NOT FULLY TRUST.
Ballots need to be returned by 8:00pm CT on Election Day.
For several reasons, including the fact that ballot drop-off is local, the fact that there is a drop-box or drop-off point in virtually every municipality, and also because there there are so many options for dropping off your ballot, Wisconsin is, in my opinion, one of the very easiest states to drop off your ballot, and is even up there with Oregon and Washington in terms of ease of dropping it off.
IF YOU ARE VOTING IN PERSON
If you want to vote in-person, it is recommended that you vote as early as possible.
Early Voting in the City of Green Bay is open MON-SAT between Tuesday, October 20 and Saturday, October 31. Location will probably be at the City Clerk's office. For early voting outside of the City of Green Bay, contact your municipal clerk's office. Make sure that you have your valid photo ID on hand before going to the polls.
You may also vote in-person on Election Day, though it is recommended that you vote early if you are voting in person. Again, make sure you have your valid photo ID.

2020.09.17 16:59 flyinmacaronimonster Absentee and In-Person Voting in Fond du Lac

Hey people of Fond du Lac!
Election Season officially begins for you as absentee ballots start going out to all registered voters that have requested a ballot, starting today.
Before I go any further, if there is one key piece of advice for you if you are voting absentee, it's that you DO NOT MAIL BACK YOUR BALLOT, and instead drop it off. There is a genuinely good reason for this, and I will explain further down below.
If you have not registered to vote yet, please do so right now. You can do so using this link:
https://myvote.wi.gov/en-US/VoterRegistration
Wednesday, October 14 is the deadline to register to vote online and by mail. You can also register to vote in-person at your municipal clerk's office during business hours up until 5:00pm or end of business on Friday, October 30 (for City of Fond du Lac voters: 7:45am-4:30pm MON-FRI at City Hall @ 160 S Macy St [at the City-County Government Center complex] in downtown Fond du Lac). If you live outside of the City of Fond du Lac, contact your municipal clerk's office for hours.
https://www.fdl.wi.gov/administration/city-clerk/contact-us/
https://www.fdl.wi.gov/administration/wp-content/uploads/sites/19/2020/09/City-of-FDL-Absentee-Voting.pdf
Wisconsin is also one of a few states that also allows for same-day voter registration on Election Day, so, if you have forgotten to register to vote by Friday, October 30, you can still register to vote at your polling place on Election Day, and then subsequently vote in-person.
https://myvote.wi.gov/en-us/VoterDeadlines
IF YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT MACHINE HACKING, KEEP IN MIND THAT WISCONSIN DOES NOT USE VOTING MACHINES IN THEIR ELECTIONS AS OF 2020, EXCEPT FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES, AND ALSO KEEP IN MIND THAT THESE MACHINES WILL HAVE A PAPER TRAIL. In Fond du Lac County, ballot marking devices (a bit different than a voting "machine") will be used by people with disabilities, but for the majority of voters (i.e. ones without a disability), hand-marked paper ballots will be used.
https://verifiedvoting.org/verifie#mode/navigate/map/ppEquip/mapType/normal/yea2020/state/55/county/39
If you are voting in-person or are a first-time absentee voter, or, if you are requesting an absentee ballot and have updated your name or address, you will need to provide a photo ID with your absentee ballot request. The reason why you need to show ID with an absentee ballot request if you have had a name or address change is because you essentially need to re-register, and every time you register or re-register to vote, you will need to provide a photo ID with your absentee ballot request.
In terms of Photo ID in general, Wisconsin has a very strict photo ID law. Most photo IDs (like a driver's license) need to be up to date as of November 6, 2018. If you need to update your driver's license or other photo ID, please do so now or as soon as possible. Some photo IDs must be unexpired, but most do not need to be.
Here's a site that explains the types of voter ID that are acceptable:
https://bringit.wi.gov/do-i-have-right-photo-id
If you have registered to vote and have not requested an absentee ballot, request an absentee ballot if you would like. Again, remember: if you have never requested an absentee ballot in Wisconsin, or, if you have updated your name or address, you will need a photo ID to accompany your absentee ballot request.
https://elections.wi.gov/voters/absentee

https://myvote.wi.gov/en-US/RequestAnAbsenteeBallot
IF YOU ARE VOTING IN-PERSON INSTEAD OF ABSENTEE-BY-MAIL, SKIP TO THE IF YOU ARE VOTING IN PERSON SECTION BELOW
Once you have requested and have received your absentee ballot, READ THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY, fill out your ballot, and then MAKE SURE TO SIGN YOUR NAME IN THE CORRECT PLACE. As well, YOU WILL NEED 1 SIGNATURE WITNESS to sign the envelope. A witness can be anybody over 18 who is not running for public office.
If you are worried about your ballot being rejected due to a mismatched signature, do not worry as they will not reject it outright without letting you know, and without giving you a chance to fix it, HOWEVER this process needs to be done before polls close (8:00pm CT) on Election Day. Because of this, please make sure to avoid dropping off your ballot on Election Day if possible, and instead drop it off earlier, and preferably as early as possible.
https://elections.wi.gov/node/6797
Once you have done all that DO NOT MAIL BACK YOUR BALLOT. The real reason why is because Wisconsin makes it incredibly easy to return your absentee ballot. Wisconsin, like Michigan, administers their elections New England-style. In other words, each municipality is basically in charge of administering the election.
So, your MUNICIPAL (NOT county) clerk will be the ones sending out ballots, and your MUNICIPAL (NOT county) clerk's office will be the ones that your ballot will ultimately need to be returned to. This makes it easier to drop off your ballot, as you will not need to go far to drop it off.

In terms of dropping off your absentee ballot, there are 4 ways to do so:
1) Drop it off at a drop-box in your municipality
I have been doing research on the extent to which ballot drop-boxes exist in Wisconsin. I have found that, in nearly all cities, villages, and towns there is at least 1 drop-box in any given municipality. In larger cities, there may be more than 1 drop box, and, in the City of Fond du Lac, there will be 2 drop-boxes located at either end of the City-County Government Center complex (west of S Macy St, between Western Ave and W 2nd St in downtown Fond du Lac): 1 at the north end of the building closer to 2nd St and 1 on the south end of the building in the Sheriff's parking lot. If you live outside of Fond du Lac city limits, drop boxes will still likely be available, although it is also possible that you may need to arrange a drop-off with your municipal clerk if you live in a smaller and more rural township, though, again, it varies by municipality.
2) Hand-deliver it in-person to your municipal clerk's office.
The City Clerk's office in Fond du Lac will be open from 7:45am-4:30pm MON-FRI at the City-County Government Complex @ 160 S Macy St through to Election Day for ballot drop off. Hours will likely be extended on Election Day. This is still another option for you to drop off your ballot, however, it is more recommended that you drop off your ballot off at one of the two drop-boxes at City-County Government Complex. If you live outside of the City of Fond du Lac, contact your municipal clerk's office for hours. Please be safe when returning it in-person to your municipal clerk's office.
3) Return to a polling site during the Early Voting period.
Early Voting in the City of Fond du Lac is open weekdays between Tuesday, October 20 and Friday, October 30. For early voting outside of the City of Fond du Lac, contact your municipal clerk's office.

If you have not registered to vote yet, please do so right now. You can do so using this link:
https://myvote.wi.gov/en-US/VoterRegistration
Wednesday, October 14 is the deadline to register to vote online and by mail. You can also register to vote in-person at your municipal clerk's office up until end of business day (4:30pm at City Hall for City of Appleton voters) on Friday, October 30. If you live outside of the City of Appleton, contact your municipal clerk's office for hours.
https://www.appleton.org/government/city-clerk/elections
Wisconsin is also one of a few states that also allows for same-day voter registration on Election Day, so, if you have forgotten to register to vote by Friday, October 30, you can still register to vote at your polling place on Election Day, and then subsequently vote in-person.
https://myvote.wi.gov/en-us/VoterDeadlines
IF YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT MACHINE HACKING, KEEP IN MIND THAT WISCONSIN DOES NOT USE VOTING MACHINES IN THEIR ELECTIONS AS OF 2020, EXCEPT FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES, AND ALSO KEEP IN MIND THAT THESE MACHINES WILL HAVE A PAPER TRAIL. In Outagamie County, ballot marking devices (a bit different than a voting "machine") will be used by people with disabilities, but for the majority of voters (i.e. ones without a disability), hand-marked paper ballots will be used.

If you are voting in-person or are a first-time absentee voter, or, if you are requesting an absentee ballot and have updated your name or address, you will need to provide a photo ID with your absentee ballot request. The reason why you need to show ID with an absentee ballot request if you have had a name or address change is because you essentially need to re-register, and every time you register or re-register to vote, you will need to provide a photo ID with your absentee ballot request.
In terms of Photo ID in general, Wisconsin has a very strict photo ID law. Most photo IDs (like a driver's license) need to be up to date as of November 6, 2018. If you need to update your driver's license or other photo ID, please do so now or as soon as possible. Some photo IDs must be unexpired, but most do not need to be.
Here's a site that explains the types of voter ID that are acceptable:
https://bringit.wi.gov/do-i-have-right-photo-id
If you have registered to vote and have not requested an absentee ballot, request an absentee ballot if you would like. Again, remember: if you have never requested an absentee ballot in Wisconsin, or, if you have updated your name or address, you will need a photo ID to accompany your absentee ballot request.

IF YOU ARE VOTING IN-PERSON INSTEAD OF ABSENTEE-BY-MAIL, SKIP TO THE IF YOU ARE VOTING IN PERSON SECTION BELOW
Once you have requested and have received your absentee ballot, READ THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY, fill out your ballot, and then MAKE SURE TO SIGN YOUR NAME IN THE CORRECT PLACE. As well, YOU WILL NEED 1 SIGNATURE WITNESS to sign the envelope. A witness can be anybody over 18 who is not running for public office.
If you are worried about your ballot being rejected due to a mismatched signature, do not worry as they will not reject it outright without letting you know, and without giving you a chance to fix it, HOWEVER this process needs to be done before polls close (8:00pm CT) on Election Day. Because of this, please make sure to avoid dropping off your ballot on Election Day if possible, and instead drop it off earlier, and preferably as early as possible.
https://elections.wi.gov/node/6797
Once you have done all that DO NOT MAIL BACK YOUR BALLOT. The real reason why is because Wisconsin makes it incredibly easy to return your absentee ballot. Wisconsin, like Michigan, administers their elections New England-style. In other words, each municipality is basically in charge of administering the election.
So, your MUNICIPAL (NOT county) clerk will be the ones sending out ballots, and your MUNICIPAL (NOT county) clerk's office will be the ones that your ballot will ultimately need to be returned to. This makes it easier to drop off your ballot, as you will not need to go far to drop it off.
When sending back your ballot, it is important to note that you need to drop it off in the MUNICIPALITY that you are voting in, NOT in the county. For example, if you live in the City of Appleton, you will need to drop it off within the city limits of Appleton, and not anywhere else in Outagamie County.
In terms of dropping off your absentee ballot, there are 4 ways to do so:
1) Drop it off at a drop-box in your municipality
I have been doing research on the extent to which ballot drop-boxes exist in Wisconsin. I have found that, in nearly all cities, villages, and towns there is at least 1 drop-box in any given municipality. In larger cities, there may be more than 1 drop box, and, in Appleton, there will be 7: 1 at City Hall in downtown Appleton (100 N Appleton St) and 6 others at all fire halls within the city of Appleton. If you live outside of Appleton city limits, drop boxes will still likely be available, although it is also possible that you may need to arrange a drop-off with your municipal clerk if you live in a smaller and more rural township, though, again, it varies by municipality.
2) Hand-deliver it in-person to your municipal clerk's office.
The City Clerk's office in Appleton will be open from 8am-4:30pm MON-FRI through to Election Day. Hours will likely be extended on Election Day. This is still another option for you to drop off your ballot, however, it is more recommended that you drop off your ballot off in the drop-box at city hall, or at one of the 6 other drop-boxes at the fire stations instead. If you live outside of the city limits of Appleton and want to return your ballot this way, contact your municipal clerk's office for hours. Please be safe when returning it in-person to your municipal clerk's office.
3) Return to a polling site during the Early Voting period.
Early Voting will likely start on Tuesday, October 20 in Appleton, though exact dates, times and locations are TBD.
4) Return to a polling site on Election Day.
This is also an option for dropping off your ballot, however it is more recommended that you drop it off earlier. Still, it is an option if need be.

Generally speaking, you, and only you, should drop off your own ballot, however, if you cannot drop it off yourself, you can have somebody else that you trust drop it off for you. PLEASE DO NOT GIVE YOUR BALLOT TO ANYBODY WHO YOU DO NOT FULLY TRUST.
Ballots need to be returned by 8:00pm CT on Election Day.
For several reasons, including the fact that ballot drop-off is local, the fact that there is a drop-box or drop-off point in virtually every municipality, and also because there there are so many options for dropping off your ballot, Wisconsin is, in my opinion, one of the very easiest states to drop off your ballot, and is even up there with Oregon and Washington in terms of ease of dropping it off.
IF YOU ARE VOTING IN PERSON
If you want to vote in-person, it is recommended that you vote as early as possible. Again dates are TBD, but are likely to start on Tuesday, October 20. If you live outside of Appleton city limits, contact your municipal clerk's office for more details on early voting. Make sure that you have your valid photo ID on hand before going to the polls.
You may also vote in-person on Election Day, though it is recommended that you vote early if you are voting in person. Again, make sure you have your valid photo ID.

Stay safe, vote, and please remember to drop off your absentee ballots and not mail it back unless completely and utterly necessary.

(If you live in Madison and want more details, I will be posting more information in the Madison subreddit, if you want to check it out.) If you live in a smaller, and more rural town or township, drop boxes will still likely be available, although it is also possible that you may need to arrange a drop-off with your municipal clerk, especially if you live in a smaller community, though, again, it varies by municipality.

4) Return to a polling site on Election Day.

2020.09.16 02:48 flyinmacaronimonster Absentee voting begins in Indiana: Here's what you need to know

NOTE: GENERAL, BUT NOT HEIGHTENED RISK OF COVID-19 IS NOT A VALID EXCUSE TO APPLY FOR AN ABSENTEE BALLOT BY MAIL IN THE STATE OF INDIANA. IF YOU ARE NOT IN A HIGH-RISK CATEGORY OR DO NOT HAVE ANOTHER VALID EXCUSE, YOU WILL NEED TO VOTE IN-PERSON IN THIS ELECTION.
If you have not registered to vote, please do so as soon as possible. Voter registration ends on October 5. You may register to vote online using this link:
https://www.in.gov/sos/elections/2403.htm
IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A VALID EXCUSE TO VOTE ABSENTEE-BY-MAIL, SKIP TO THE "IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A VALID EXCUSE" SECTION DOWN BELOW.
IF YOU HAVE A VALID EXCUSE
If you are at a heightened risk for COVID-19, including if you are 65 or older, or you take care of somebody in this category, you are allowed to request an absentee ballot.
Once you have received your ballot, READ THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY, fill out your ballot, and then MAKE SURE TO SIGN YOUR NAME IN THE CORRECT PLACE. Once you have done that, hand-deliver your ballot in-person to your County Election office. Drop-boxes are not available in Indiana. If you are returning it yourself, try to go as early as possible, at a time that is less busy.
ELECTION OFFICE LOCATIONS BY COUNTY:
MARION (Indianapolis): 3737 E. Washington St (NOT the City-County building downtown; located at the south end of the strip mall at E Washington and Sherman Dr)

If you cannot return your ballot yourself, you may have a close family member, a housemate, a legal guardian, or a power-of-attorney drop off your ballot for you. If you do, you will need to sign an ABS-19 form.
ABS-19 forms can be found here (BALLOT APPLICATIONS AND OTHER FORMS CAN ALSO BE FOUND AT THIS LINK): https://www.in.gov/sos/elections/4564.htm
This would be a good option for people who are at high-risk for COVID-19 who does not want to go out, and has somebody available, that meets the criteria, that can drop their ballot off for them. IF YOU ARE HAVING SOMEBODY ELSE RETURN A COMPLETED BALLOT FOR YOU, PLEASE BE SURE TO ONLY GIVE YOUR BALLOT TO SOMEBODY THAT YOU TRUST.
Ballots need to be received by the County Clerk's office by 12 noon local time on Election Day (both in-person and by mail), though try and return your ballot as soon as you can, preferably well before Election Day.
You may not return a ballot to a polling place on Election Day.
IMPORTANT: Indiana has recently changed its signature verification process to allow for a cure process for mismatched signatures. So now, you will not only be notified about a signature mismatch, but you will also have a chance to correct it.

IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A VALID EXCUSE
If you do not have a valid excuse to vote absentee-by-mail, and need to vote in-person, try to vote as early as possible. Early voting (or, what is called “in-person absentee” voting) begins on Tuesday, October 6 and is available to all registered voters. The main site for early v Satellite early voting begins no earlier than the second week before Election Day. Start dates vary by county. To break it down by county:
MARION (Indianapolis): https://vote.indy.gov/
{main site at the City-County Building @ 200 E. Washington Street, W122 in Downtown Indianapolis [FREE PARKING]; satellite early voting expands to 5 more early voting sites around the outer perimeter of Indianapolis between Saturday, October 24 and Sunday, November 1}
BOONE (Lebanon): https://boonecounty.in.gov/Offices/Clerk/Election-Information
{main site at the County Courthouse @ 212 Courthouse Square in Lebanon; expands to 2 more additional locations between Saturday, October 24 and Saturday, October 31 (not open on Sunday, October 25), including an additional 6 locations available on Thursday, October 29 and Friday, October 30}.
HAMILTON (Noblesville): https://www.hamiltoncounty.in.gov/1399/Vote-Early---In-Person
{TWO main sites initially available: one at the County Judicial Center @ One Courthouse Square in Noblesville, and one at the County Fairgrounds Annex Building @ 2003 Pleasant St in Noblesville; expands to 6 locations (3 in Carmel, 2 in Fishers, 1 in Westfield) available Wed-Sat between Wednesday, October 21 and Saturday, October 31}
HANCOCK (Greenfield): https://hancockcoingov.org/hancock-county-current-election-information
{main site at the County Courthouse Annex @ 111 American Legion Pl in Greenfield; expands to 3 locations available every day of the week (including Saturday and Sunday) between Monday, October 19 and Friday, October 30}
HENDRICKS (Danville): https://www.co.hendricks.in.us/egov/apps/document/center.egov?view=item;id=4597
{main site at the County Government Center @ 355 S Washington St in Danville; expands to 5 locations available Wed-Sat between Wednesday, October 14 and Saturday, October 31}
JOHNSON (Franklin): http://co.johnson.in.us/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/2020-General-VC-Flyer.pdf
{main site at County Courthouse @ 5 E Jefferson St in Franklin; expands to 4 locations between Wednesday, October 21 and Friday, October 23, and then 5 locations between Saturday, October 24 and Saturday, October 31 (closed on Sunday, October 25)}
MORGAN (Martinsville): http://morgancounty.in.gov/clerk/elections/
{TWO main sites, one at the Election office in the basement of the County Administration Building @ 180 S Main St, Ste. 001 in Martinsville, the other at the First Christian Church @ 525 N Indiana St in Mooresville; one additional location (Monrovia Christian Church @ 710 Gordon St in Monrovia) open on Saturdays October 24 and October 31 between 8:00am and 3:00pm}
SHELBY (Shelbyville): TBD
It is possible that you MIGHT also be able to hand-deliver your ballot and/or application to the Indiana Election Division’s main office at 302 W Washington St, Suite 204 in downtown Indianapolis. This option, if available, would technically be available to any Indiana voter, not just voters in Marion County.
It is located in the massive State Government Center, South Building, which is located just to the west of the State Capitol Building, though, IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING GOING TO THE INDIANA GOVERNMENT CENTER DOWNTOWN INSTEAD OF THE COUNTY ELECTION SERVICE CENTER EAST OF DOWNTOWN, PLEASE CALL IN ADVANCE TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY ARE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. THEY MAY OR MAY NOT BE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC DUE TO COVID-19.
You may also feel free to vote on Election Day if early voting is inconvenient for you.
If you have already requested a ballot but did not submit it yet, you can surrender your ballot in-person and vote at an early voting location or at a polling place on Election Day.
Make sure to have a valid photo ID with you when voting in person. Indiana has rather strict photo ID laws. Your photo ID needs to be valid to the date of the last general election, which is November 6, 2018. If you need to update your photo ID, do so as soon as possible. You can find a link to photo ID requirements in the links below.
Please be safe, and vote.

2020.09.14 16:39 Alex__UNLIMITED The "Alternative List" policy. A proposal on creating an advocacy group with influential personalities and stakeholders in order to keep the Reserved List, increase its value over the time but change its spirit for designing alternative cards. "This format is not for you" is bad for the game.

The Reserved List is a topic that generates constant discussions. It has been changed for the umpteenth time about 10 years ago, and it has been the subject of at least one meeting with influential personalities after a lot of pressure from the community, but in recent months there have been new videos and proposals, all oriented towards radical change of the Reserved List or its abolition, in the general indifference of the WotC. In my opinion, some proposals made over the years have been pretty bad, but I appreciate the effort in discussing the Reserved List. For more information, see a summary of how many times it has already been changed in the past under pressure from the player community.
What is currently lacking in the reserved list discussion is concrete coordination around this instance. After the Professor's video I thought it would be a good idea to start coordinating these scattered and messy opinions, in order to have an advocacy group based on a coherent, shared and influential project.
Influential because, in addition to being influential personalities, everyone in the world of MTG has some sort of power: the single individual-player who can decide to buy or not (or complain, which is often the case), the content creator who can present an application to the general public, the judge and the pro player who can decide whether or not to participate in an event (in the past there are those who have decided not to participate in an event out of protest, at least among the pro players), and finally the great organizer (such as Starcitygames) who can implement influential choices in themselves. WotC employees themselves hold great power.
I have two brief notes to make before continuing.

❌ What we do NOT need: the abolition or modification of the Reserved List

Although I am in favor of the abolition of the Reserved List, it would be impossible to create an advocacy group for such a radical change, which could even clash with an influential minority of individuals interested in keeping the promise represented by the reserved list. And precisely because it is a promise, its abolition would greatly damage the credibility of the WotC. Furthermore, my idea of ​​an advocacy group does NOT fight for the reintegration of foil loophole: it would be useless, risky for the price of the cards and would effectively invalidate the Reserved List.

✔ What we need: to insist on the flexibility of the concept of "spirit" around the Reserved List, while protecting the value of the reserved cards

If the reserved list is “here to stay”, the focus of the advocacy group is to re-discuss the spirit of the reserved list. In short, this vague and abstract concept blocks the printing of cards similar to those of the Reserved List. In particular, it avoids the creation of cards that could provide valid alternatives to the more expensive ones that are currently used in competitive decks of various formats (mainly Vintage, Legacy and Commander). This is extremely frustrating for many players, it blocks the formation of new communities and prevents WotC from investing adequately in the market share of Eternal formats. In addition, it is especially very risky due to the continuous improvements of counterfeit cards.
There are people who are constantly playing with counterfeit Reserved List cards, even in major tournaments like GPs, and I know many of you have heard or read various stories about it. Others are also unaware that they have counterfeit cards. Finally, I remind you that many shops still allow the use of proxies, which are often counterfeit cards: in my opinion, this could already represent in itself a damage to the image of WotC, also due to the struggle made in the past against counterfeiting.
Returning to the concept of "spirit" of the RL, the point is that nothing stops WotC from printing dual lands that come in untapped if you haven't cast your Commander yet during the game, or that give flying to the [[Colossal Dreadmaw]] of your opponents. These are just a couple of silly examples.
The concrete proposal is based on two apparently antithetical concepts, but in reality perfectly reconcilable and which indeed reinforce each other:
  1. continue to protect the value of reserved cards over time as an investment and "luxury market";
  2. provide a cheaper but still competitive alternative to players, also regulated by a policy.

The Alternative List

Below, a sketch for the idea.

1) Mutual exclusivity

Whenever an alternative card is printed, a deck cannot contain the corresponding reserved card. For example: if I have a Rocky Plateau, I cannot have any Plateau copies in my deck. If I have a Plateau, I cannot have any copies of Rocky Plateau. This would also help to test this type of banning based on pairs of cards and not on a single card, which, if I'm not mistaken, is already used in other games.
Why is there a need for mutual exclusivity? More competitive players would prefer to have a different copy of each card (for example, one in the Alternative List and one in the Reserved List), to cope with game situations involving cards such as [[Predict]] and [[Surgical Extraction]] . This may also affect cards such as [[Phyrexian Revoker]] (in the case of nonland alternative cards with activated abilities) and [[Meddling Mage]] (in the case of nonland alternative cards). Also, in Commander, players would prefer to have both.
There is another problem, however, which must be solved at the level of rules and which adds a level of complexity to the factor of mutual exclusivity: the meta-value of the card name. This concept, already used in the Godzilla cards, is complementary and internal to the mutual exclusivity and links even more reserved cards to alternative cards. Let's take a practical example: if I name [[Helm of Obedience]] with [[Cabal Therapy]], but my opponent has the alternative card, it will still have to be discarded. The same is true with different effects, such as those of Meddling Mage or Phyrexian Revoker. Obviously, the "alternative Helm of Obedience" will have a slightly different effect, and it cannot be replaced. For example, the alternative Helm of Obedience says "target player" instead of "target opponent", so, in this case, someone could redirect the effect of the card to you via [[Reroute]]. It is a very rare disadvantage that would justify the lower price of the alternative card, but it could also offer other interesting interactions. The meta-value of the card name, therefore, is based on the name only, not on other game issues. We have seen it, albeit in a different way, with the Godzilla cards, so it could be applied, with the necessary changes, also in the alternative cards policy. Fortunately, there are very few cards in the Reserved List strong enough to be played and to need these precautions regarding alternative cards, and moreover this rule can be remembered by adopting an aesthetic solution similar to Godzilla cards, with a reminder text box at the bottom to paper (perhaps aesthetically similar to what we see in the Mutate mechanic), and more.
In short, there are solutions, they have already adopted similar ones in the past and could work in this new perspective.
So why maintain mutual exclusivity if the name of the alternative card is considered the same as that of the reserved card? Mutual exclusivity, in my opinion, should however be maintained, both to avoid confusing the players with too many "slightly" different cards in the same deck, and to avoid taking advantage of certain game situations that include strange interactions between the reserved cards, the alternative cards and other cards. Slightly different texts can influence big game choices, including sideboarding ones. Mutual exclusivity and meta-value of the card name, therefore, are complementary precautionary measures.
Mutual exclusivity creates a clear distinction between "mass market" and "luxury market", giving added value to the collection of a card in the Reserved List: providing an alternative would also help to protect more easily the cards in Reserved List from the wear and tear they suffer during the game, or from the risk of losing them or having them stolen, since the "alternative card" can be used. Also, for those who still want to play them, using the card in the Reserved List would be a new way to pimp a deck, which already happens when playing an Alpha Basic Land or a Guru Land. It has already been widely discussed how the cards reprinted many times have retained their value, despite not even being part of the Reserved List or not used in any sanctioned format, like Old School, so I don't think this would affect Revised duals, which instead would increase price over time, reinforcing their symbolic value of "exclusive cards", precisely because they will never be reprinted and it will have become impractical to falsify them to play.

2) Protection of collector value and the luxury market

In addition to market protection based on mutual exclusivity, all the cards in the Alternative List cannot be printed foil, with the old frame, in full art or with other alternative frames. This choice will protect the value of the cards in the Reserved List even better. Also, they will never be printed in Standard. Finally, it would be worth considering the possibility of printing them only in some languages, or even printing them exclusively in white border, but these are delicate and more extreme choices.
The Alternative List is a complementary policy to the Reserved List: many people are still convinced that, in the future, the Reserved List will be abolished, for various reasons. The Alternative List does not modify the Reserved List, but strengthens it, increasing the credibility of a promise that has already been modified many times in the past, while allowing valid and competitive alternatives to be made accessible for playing Eternal formats. This could strengthen the luxury market: if I want to pimp my Legacy deck, I will not be able to buy a foil "alternative card”, because it does not exist, so I have to take the corresponding reserved card. This would also help protect the value of Revised duals: now they are the "least expensive" option to have a dual, but with this policy they would become the first step in pimping a deck. Obviously, the market could be destabilized at first, but in the long run, the luxury market based on these cards would strengthen, while fighting counterfeit cards.
Following a line based on prudence, WotC could do a cycle of Legendary Dual Lands with an irrelevant or almost irrelevant drawback in Legacy, evaluate their audience acceptance, and then print another cycle with another design, evaluating any future developments for cards like a Mox Diamond which can only add three colors, and so on. The options are many, as are the possibilities that WotC has to make money on such a choice. Even MaRo made a hint about it on BlogAtog.
However, I do not recommend the legendary duals, because they would damage the concept of mutual exclusivity of the Alternative List, which serves precisely to protect the value of the cards in the Reserved List, both for simple collection and for pimp reasons.
How can we get what we need by looking at what has already worked in the past
In the past, the voice of the communities has allowed some important changes in the game. Gavin Verhey, now a WotC employee, created the Overextened, which was later welcomed by WotC and modified into the format we all know today: Modern. Without such an initiative led by a former pro player, probably none of you today could have played Modern, and even Piooner (also based on the popular "no rotation" concept, just like Legacy, Vintage and Commander). Another example comes from the popularity of Pauper, also fueled by influential people, such as the Professor. Finally, remember that the Commander, an extremely popular format, was born from the community and is regulated by it.
There are also numerous examples that could be given of how, following complaints, the WotC corrected the course on some unpopular policies. You have already seen them in these months, so I will avoid focusing too much on them. But here, if many people have bothered the concept of “this product is not for you” with the Double Masters VIP Packs, then they should also organize themselves about changing the concept of “this format is not for you”. The issues related to this situation could accumulate unexpectedly, so you cannot continue to leave these formats to speculation based on the Reserved List, which WotC does not want to influence for reasons it cannot declare, and which leaves many communities of players in frustration or risk of counterfeiting cards, which are now very common in Commander too. All this does not result in a good image for the company, if we refer to this specific context.
Returning to the virtuous examples of the past, it is important to have influential people and communities that implement effective and lasting communication around this issue.

Influential people

In the era of communication, without influential people, you can't go anywhere. For this reason, this post is an appeal to anyone who wants to coordinate for concrete action, taking advantage of the power that everyone holds. Remember that this is only a starting point, because this is an imperfect and improvable proposal. This can become a project based on common perspectives, and anyone interested will have to do their part, even if this may mean, only in extreme cases, taking a protest attitude towards the WotC. I'm not talking about protest against MaRo and other employees: they have already fought a lot to change the Reserved List and we should stop being rude to them on this subject.
Below, here's how it could be managed in the perspective of an advocacy group composed of different communities.

Conclusions

It took me days to write this proposal and I am not a native speaker of English, so sorry if anything might be unclear. For Italians, I have the text saved in our language, if you are interested.
Now there is a real need for a response from the various communities. You can comment or contact me to better organize the matter. I would like to share this post with some influential people, but you have to too. In this way we will have a support for a precise design able to encourage this change.
"I've talked about this before but it's an important enough point to make again. The reserve list (the list that tells us what cards we can never reprint, for those who don't know) was created long ago by people who no longer work at Wizards. It was done to help ease concerns of our player base at the time. The majority of current R&D feels that the reprint list isn't fulfilling the function it was created for (and at times seems to actually counteract it), but, and this is the important sticking point, we've learned through market research that the majority of our audience feels it's important for Wizards of the Coast, as a company, to keep its word. So we're stuck between a rock and a hard place. We want to do what is best for the game and our players and we want to keep the confidence of our consumers. If anyone has a solution to this Gordian knot, please let me know."
- Mark Rosewater, 2009.
I think that now, more than 11 years later, there is an alternative to consider. I believe that the Old School format, the interest in pimp and collecting are important points to consider in order to understand how this proposal can be absolutely valid. Discuss again the Reserved List (even with another meeting) can't be embarrassing if compared to Double Master flawed VIP packages, Jumpstart mass misprints and other bad choices WotC has made during the last years. From the perspective of a lot of players and sellers, this could be an opportunity to gain more confidence in the market, to invest more in the game and to please an extremely large number of people for the difficult years ahead.

2020.09.14 14:27 rusticgorilla Lost in the Sauce: GOP source has been a Russian agent for a decade

Welcome to Lost in the Sauce, keeping you caught up on political and legal news that often gets buried in distractions and theater… or a global health crisis.
Housekeeping:

GOP source is Russian agent

The Treasury Department announced new sanctions against Andriy Derkach, a Ukrainian lawmaker, accusing him of being an "active Russian agent" who is part of Moscow's interference in the 2020 campaign. Derkach has been actively promoting discredited anti-Biden materials for many months, including meeting with Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani to hand over disinformation (picture).
Between May and July 2020, Derkach released edited audio tapes and other unsupported information with the intent to discredit U.S. officials, and he levied unsubstantiated allegations against U.S. and international political figures
These tapes were laundered through Giuliani to OANN, the Senate Homeland Security Committee (via Chairman Sen. Ron Johnson), Don Jr., and the president himself.
Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Ron Wyden (D-OR) called out Sen. Johnson and Sen. Chuck Grassley (Chair of Senate Finance Cmte.) for collaborating with Derkach:
Derkach has been central in advancing the Russian disinformation that underpins Senate Republicans’ effort to smear Vice President Biden. For example, in April, the Republican chairmen of the Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs and Finance Committees requested information about purported calls between Vice President Biden and Ukrainian officials. Then in May edited excerpts of those same calls involving Biden were leaked by Derkach and Andrii Telizhenko, the Senate Republicans’ star witness.
...Senate investigations should not parrot conspiracy theories pushed by Russian agents under U.S. sanctions, and Senate Republicans should immediately abandon this blatantly political effort.

DHS Whistleblower

Last week, the House Intelligence Committee released a whistleblower complaint made by former acting Under Secretary of Homeland Security for Intelligence and Analysis Brian Murphy. Chairman Adam Schiff released a statement saying the complaint “outlines grave and disturbing allegations that senior White House and Department of Homeland Security officials improperly sought to politicize, manipulate, and censor intelligence in order to benefit President Trump politically.”

On Russia

Page 10: Mr. Murphy made several protected disclosures between March 2018 and August 2020 regarding a repeated pattern of abuse of authority, attempted censorship of intelligence analysis and improper administration of an intelligence program related to Russian efforts to influence and undermine United States interests. The relevant officials at issue were Secretary Nielsen and Messrs. Wolf, Cuccinelli, Taylor, and Acting Deputy Director for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, Kash Patel (“Mr. Patel”).
In May 2020, Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf told Murphy to “cease providing intelligence assessments on the threat of Russian interference in the United States, and instead start reporting on interference activities by China and Iran.” Wolf told Murphy those instructions came directly from White House national security adviser Robert O’Brien, according to Murphy, who said he refused to comply because “doing so would put the country in substantial and specific danger.”
In July 2020, DHS chief of staff John Gountanis intervened to stop publication of an intelligence bulletin warning about a Russian disinformation plot to “denigrate” the mental health of Joe Biden. On July 8, Murphy said, he met with Wolf, who told him that the intelligence notification should be “held” because it “made the President look bad.” After Murphy protested, Wolf excluded him from meetings about the notification, a draft of which was ultimately produced that Murphy felt minimized the actions of Russia.
The complaint details dozens of instances in which Murphy told his superiors about the abuses of power and political interference. The complaints either went nowhere or resulted in perceived retaliatory actions against Murphy. Many of these complaints were given to Kash Patel, former staffer to Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), who played a key role in a Republican effort to discredit Mueller’s and the FBI’s Russia probes.
  • Related: NSC’s top legislative affairs official, Virginia Boney, was removed and sent to the Commerce Department earlier this year because she kept pressing the White House to prioritize election security efforts — and specifically the threat posed by Russia. To date, there have been no traditional NSC Principals Committee meetings — with senior Cabinet officials and the president — on the subject of Russian interference this year.

On white supremacy

Page 14: During multiple meetings between the end of May 2020 and July 31, 2020, Mr. Murphy made protected disclosures to Messrs. Wolf and Cuccinelli regarding abuse of authority and improper administration of an intelligence program with respect to intelligence information on ANTIFA and “anarchist” groups operating throughout the United States.
Murphy alleges that Senior Official Performing the Duties of the Deputy Secretary Ken Cuccinelli ordered him to modify intelligence assessments to make the threat of white supremacy “appear less severe” and include information on violent “left-wing” groups and Antifa. The reason given was “to ensure they matched up with the public comments by President Trump on the subject of ANTIFA and ‘anarchist’ groups.”
After Murphy refused to change a draft report warning of the threat posed by White supremacists, Wolf and Cuccinelli reportedly stopped the report from being finished.

On immigration and asylum

In Dec. 2019, Cuccinelli expressed frustration with intelligence reports detailing conditions in Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador, and accused "deep-state intelligence analysts" of compiling the information to undermine Trump's objectives regarding asylum.
Page 9: The intelligence reports were designed to help asylum officers render better determinations regarding their legal standards… Mr. Murphy defended the work in the reports, but Mr. Cuccinelli stated he wanted changes to the information outlining high levels of corruption, violence, and poor economic conditions in the three respective countries...
Mr. Cuccinelli ordered Messrs. Murphy and [former I&A Under Secretary David] Glawe to identify the names of the “deep state” individuals who compiled the intelligence reports and to either fire or reassign them immediately.
Murphy also alleges that DHS gave false information to Congress last year about the numbers of suspected terrorists crossing the southern border. At the time, administration officials were repeating a 4,000 figure in an effort to justify the government shutdown over Trump's border wall. The true number was actually six. A DHS spokeswoman pressured NBC to take down a story exposing the lie last year.

Response

Chairman Schiff has subpoenaed Murphy to testify before the Intelligence Cmte. on September 21. The Cmte. also seeks to interview high-level DHS officials including Matthew Hanna, chief of staff in Murphy's former post at DHS' Office of Intelligence and Analysis; the office's top official, Horace Jen; DHS chief of staff John Gountanis; and his deputy, Tyler Houlton.
The Senate Intelligence Cmte. issued a bipartisan request for all of the intelligence analyses that Murphy referenced in his complaint, as well as any notes and materials that fed into them. The House Homeland Security Cmte. issued a subpoena for testimony from Wolf at a hearing on Sept. 17, but DHS says that Wolf will not comply and offers Cuccinelli to testify instead. Also scheduled to be at the hearing: FBI Director Christopher Wray and Christopher Miller of the National Counterterrorism Center.

Russia still interfering

Facebook recently took down accounts and pages associated with a Russian influence operation posing as an independent news outlet. The operation published content described as “an attempt to build a left-wing audience and steer it away from Biden’s campaign, in the same way that the original IRA [Internet Research Agency] tried to depress progressive and minority support for Hillary Clinton in 2016.”
  • The same Russian operation tried and failed to infiltrate left-wing media outlets such as Jacobin, Truthout, and In These Times.
Bob Woodward reported that“the NSA and CIA have classified evidence the Russians had placed malware in the election registration systems of at least two Florida counties, St. Lucie and Washington. While there was no evidence the malware had been activated, Woodward writes, it was sophisticated and could erase voters in specific districts.”
  • Woodward’s book also notes that former director of national intelligence Dan Coats has "deep suspicions" that Russian President Vladimir Putin "had something" on President Trump, seeing "no other explanation" for the president's behavior.
Microsoft alerted SKDKnickerbocker, one of Biden’s main election campaign advisory firms, that suspected Russian state-backed hackers had gone after the company with a failed phishing attack.

DOJ, politicization, and resignations

A top aide to Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham, federal prosecutor Nora Dennehy, resigned from the Justice Department and Durham’s investigation into the origins of the Russia probe. Dannehy reportedly resigned “at least partly out of concern” that Trump and AG Barr were exerting improper political pressure on the team to release results before the November election.
Several officials said expectations had been growing in the White House and Congress that Mr. Barr would make public, ahead of the election, some kind of interim report or list of findings from Mr. Durham before he completed the investigation. Mr. Barr had wanted Mr. Durham’s team to move quickly, according to a person familiar with the matter.
Trump has publicly expressed impatience with the Durham investigation, saying there should be more prosecutions and disclosures of information that would damage his political rivals. “Bill Barr has the chance to be the greatest of all time, but if he wants to be politically correct, he’ll be just another guy, because he knows all the answers, he knows what they have, and it goes right to Obama and it goes right to Biden,” Trump said (clip).
Last month, Barr predicted “significant developments in the probe before the election” (clip) and he indicated the DOJ would not respect an informal policy against taking investigative steps 60 days before Election Day. It was for this exact reason that the Trump administration claimed it fired former FBI Director James Comey.
On Tuesday’s Fox News, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows appeared to claim that he has seen documents—relevant to U.S. Attorney John Durham’s probe of the origins of the Russia investigation—which implicate several Trump and Obama administration officials in potentially illegal conduct.

Two other DOJ officials resigned last week:
Prosecutor John Choi resigned from Trump's law enforcement commission after expressing "serious" concerns that the intention of the commission was not to bridge the gap between communities of color and law enforcement.
Choi, a Democrat, said in his resignation letter that "it is now patently obvious ... that this process had no intention of engaging in a thoughtful and open analysis, but was intent on providing cover for a predetermined agenda that ignores the lessons of the past, furthering failed tough-on-crime policies that led to our current mass incarceration crisis and fueling divisions between our communities and our police officers."
Deputy Assistant AG David Morrell resigned on Friday, withdrawing from cases defending the government’s position on issues including the Census and the Portland protests.

The courts

A three-judge panel blocked the Trump administration from excluding undocumented immigrants from being counted in the census for apportionment. Trump’s order violates a statue saying apportionment must be based on everyone who is a resident of the United States.
District Judge Lucy Koh ordered the Trump admin. to produce internal documents connected to its sudden decision to end the 2020 Census count a month earlier. Two weeks ago, Koh temporarily blocked the bureau from winding down the count until a hearing set for Sept. 17.
Court-appointed adviser and retired judge John Gleeson slammed the Justice Department’s decision to drop the case against Michael Flynn, calling it a "corrupt and politically motivated favor.” A hearing on the matter is scheduled for Sept. 29.
"In the United States, Presidents do not orchestrate pressure campaigns to get the Justice Department to drop charges against defendants who have pleaded guilty -- twice, before two different judges -- and whose guilt is obvious," Gleeson wrote.
"Yet that is exactly what has unfolded here," he added.
A judge denied a bid to dismiss a lawsuit alleging that Trump's inaugural committee and the Trump Organization misused nonprofit funds to enrich the president's family business. The suit, brought by Washington, D.C., Attorney General Karl Racine in January, alleges that the president's inaugural committee was aware that it was being overcharged for services at Trump's Washington hotel in 2017 and still spent over $1 million at the hotel.
The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control announced two settlements totaling $583,100 with Deutsche Bank to resolve investigations into violations of Ukraine-related sanctions. The resolution came as the bank hired “an old friend” of AG Barr to “help the bank navigate the political waters in Washington.”

Trump profiting

Federal spending records show that taxpayers have paid Trump’s businesses more than $900,000 since he took office. At least $570,000 came as a result of the president’s travel.
In addition to the rentals at Mar-a-Lago, the documents show that the Trump Organization charged daily “resort fees” to Secret Service agents guarding Vice President Pence in Las Vegas and in another instance asked agents to pay a $1,300 “furniture removal charge” during a presidential visit to a Trump resort in Scotland.
Additionally, the Trump Organization has received at least $3.8 million in fees from GOP groups for headlining a political event at one of his properties.
Last month, the Trump Organization received approval for a new trademark in Argentina, the third one in the country. Last November, Trump may have altered U.S. foreign policy to assist his company in obtaining approval for the two previous trademarks. “Shortly after the trademark opposition period ended in April 2018, the Trump administration lifted tariffs on steel and aluminum in Argentina. Once the trademarks were officially granted to his company in November of last year, Trump announced that he would reinstate the tariffs.”
Somehow, Ivanka Trump’s fashion business is still making money despite being shutdown. According to her latest financial disclosures, “All operations of the business ceased on July 31, 2018.” Also according to her latest financial disclosures, she made at least six figures from the trust holding that business in 2019.
We - American taxpayers - footed the bill for “anti-scale fencing” along the perimeter of the White House this summer. The wall, ostensibly to protect Trump from protesters, cost over $1 million. Trump has a history of charging taxpayers for barriers around his properties, including $17,000 for fencing around Mar-a-Lago and $12,000 for “privacy fencing” around Trump International golf resort.

Immigration news

About 8,800 unaccompanied children have been quickly expelled from the United States along the Mexico border under a pandemic-related measure that effectively ended asylum. In total, the Trump administration has expelled more than 159,000 people since March.
ICE officers on the West Coast wanted to suppress Black Lives Matter protests in DC. But they aren't allowed to travel on charter flights without detainees on board. So they brought some detainees with them. In the process, they fueled a massive, deadly COVID outbreak at the Virginia facility that infected over 300 detainees, killing one.
The Pentagon is restarting many domestic projects that were plundered by Trump for money to pay for his border wall. The decision to revive these domestic projects has provided cover for Republican senators who were criticized when their home states lost military construction projects to the president’s wall.

Miscellaneous

Corruption: Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is bringing back his extravagant, taxpayer-funded "Madison Dinners."
Corruption: Medicaid chief Seema Verma has charged taxpayers $6 million in less than two years for expensive consultants, organizers, and events. The Republican consultants were paid by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to work on Verma’s personal image, obtain profiles and coverage from friendly reporters, escort her during travel, write opinion articles, and even draft her Twitter posts.
Corruption: The Trump administration secretly withheld millions of dollars from a program for 9/11 first responders.
Corruption: “Ukraine gas company to add Rick Perry pick to board” and “Rick Perry’s Ukrainian Dream
Protests: Trump endorsed the extrajudicial killing of the suspect in a deadly Portland, Oregon, shooting. . “This guy was a violent criminal, and the US Marshals killed him,” Trump told Fox News host Jeanine Pirro. “And I will tell you something, that’s the way it has to be. There has to be retribution” (clip).
Protests: A witness claims that the Portland suspect, Michael Forest Reinoehl, was not armed and was shot by officers without any warning.
Rightwing: “QAnon fans spread fake claims about real fires in Oregon” and “'Do not take action yourselves': Multnomah Co. Sheriff's Office warns of illegal 'checkpoints' ”
Rightwing: Mark Zuckerberg says it's "just wrong" to consider Facebook a right-wing echo chamber driven by conservative voices. But data from his own company shows that’s exactly what Facebook is.
Environment: David Legates, a University of Delaware professor of climatology who has spent much of his career questioning basic tenets of climate science, has been hired for a top position at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
Environment: How Big Oil Misled The Public Into Believing Plastic Would Be Recycled. Your plastic will not be recycled.
Environment: Trump’s Fire Sale of Public Lands for Oil and Gas Drillers: The Bureau of Land Management is rushing to auction off sites ahead of a potential Biden presidency.
World: The Iranian government is considering assassinating the US ambassador to South Africa in response to the killing earlier this year of Qassem Soleimani, according to highly classified intel reports. The plot against the ambassador, Lana Marks, is one of several options US officials believe Iran is considering for retaliation over Soleimani’s death.
  • Woodward reported that Sen. Lindsey Graham urged Trump not to assassinate Suleimani while on the golf course with the president. Graham warned Trump he would be raising the stakes from “playing $10 blackjack to $10,000-a-hand blackjack”. “This is over the top,” the senator said. “How about hitting someone a level below Suleimani, which would be much easier for everyone to absorb?”
World: Read some of the “love letters” Kim Jong Un sent to Trump.
World: Woodward also reported that Trump boasted that he protected Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman after Jamal Khashoggi's brutal murder. "I saved his ass,” Trump said. “I was able to get Congress to leave him alone. I was able to get them to stop.”
