Tomorrow is U.S. national election day. Would just simply reminding everyone to vote consider a political discussion?
And no, this is not a trick question.

never think one vote doesn't matter for 2 reasons

*if everyone who would vote the same as you thinks like that too, then guess what can happen?

*your single vote may not possibly matter in your state for the nationals contest, say like voting for Trump in Massachusetts presumably, however your *local contests* can be decided by amounts like 50 votes or, not impossibly, even one vote, and those votes are needed

It's ridiculous that some states have been voting for three weeks and others try to do it all in one day. For national elections, there should be some sort of standard policy.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

I'm going to have to close this thread, per forum rules against making political statements. I see this running off the rails quickly.

I invite all to say whatever they wish about the election at DT. There are already 282 pages about the election at the thread I just linked to and that is just one thread.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.
