Can confirm I went and voted for Warnock not long after the polls opened this morning. Here’s hoping we have to numbers to carry this one again.

Wow, way to come off as a stuck up prick. Because someone wears a hoodie and some shorts they're dressing up as a "slob". No voter with an actual brain puts much value into what a person is wearing....maybe because it doesn't dictate the policies they'd vote for.

u/Grizzant Nov 27 '22

go at 6:30pm or so. I did that today - in the morning there was a line around the building so i bailed. I went back at 6:40pm and no line. The volunteers told me 6:30pm is a pretty perfect time to show up as most of the long lines are cleared out by then but you still have comfortable margin to get there without missing the 7pm closing

u/Independent_Chair_62 Nov 27 '22

Show up late enough to be late xd got it. "Your polling place is on the other side of town." Well fuck me.

You can early vote at any polling place inside your county of residence in Georgia. Your assigned polling place only matters on election day proper.

Hot damn real common sense democracy xd.

as long as you are in line before 7pm you get to vote... assuming there even is one at that time of night

Walker told Texas he was a primary resident there in his taxes. How is he even on the ticket now in Georgia?? Isn't that like something....what is it?....hmmm.....couldn't be potential voting fraud/tax evasion/tax fraud, electioneering maybe?... I dunno but it feels wrong.

u/noncongruent Nov 26 '22

Yep, Herschel is claiming that he's a Texas resident in order to claim an exemption on the property taxes on his three million dollar home there, and at the same time he's claiming legal residency in Georgia to run for Senate, as well as claiming GA residency when he registered to vote there last year. Did he vote in GA? If he's still a legal Texas resident then that's voter fraud, and if he's going to stick to his claim of being a GA resident then that's tax fraud back in Texas. Either way he's a fraud.

u/Thesadcook Nov 27 '22 edited Nov 27 '22

I early voted in Atlanta this morning at 7AM (as soon as it opened) and it was PACKED. The line was still long when I drove by later in the day. Fingers crossed.

Early voting turnout typically favors dems. I’m pretty sure he’s gonna lose. I was just saying.

u/No_Pen9448 Nov 27 '22

Honestly, I don’t like trump, but damn. Stop calling him Cheeto. It doesn’t make you sound smart when you say that. Secondly, in our day and age of not wanting to label people by their skin complexion, it is ironic that people keep calling him Cheeto. I believe there was a democrat who called a black Republican “Oreo”. It’s all honestly the same grade school immaturity that needs to stop.

By all means, call him anything else.

12

u/FreemanCalavera Nov 27 '22

I mean, Trump very obviously uses spray tan though so it's not even close to commenting on someone's natural skin tone.

Also, he's someone who routinely mocks other people's appearances so it's more of a "pot calling the kettle black" situation. It's not a particularly creative insult, but hardly a controversial thing.

1

u/Kamelasa Canada Nov 28 '22 edited Nov 29 '22

You're telling me to stop calling him that when it's the most common substitute name for the guy, and the earliest I saw back in 2016? He's as puffed up and fake-coloured as that junk food and it suits him perfectly. If he had friends, they'd call him that jokingly. I find it amusing you suggest anyone would try to be clever using that name. I mean only someone first time reading a cheeto article would think it's clever. Maybe. Edit: typo

That was an extremely rural district. A bit different from a statewide election.

Don't use "they." Most of us had no chance to vote against her. She has a very rural district gerrymandered to hell. A black man had no chance in that district. Last time she ran unopposed after her opponent was intimidated until he dropped out and left the state.

Their unofficial position after the midterms is that single women, young people, and anyone with more melanin than Conan O’Brien should not be allowed to vote cause it isn’t fair. If those folks vote, Republicans lose.

After 20 years of hearing the demographics doom Republicans argument, I think it might be finally coming true.

u/Vyar New Jersey Nov 26 '22

There are two elections in my lifetime I will never understand. The first is how in the hell Trump ever won a primary, and then became president. The second is this election, and how the hell Walker could win a primary and then not get obliterated by Warnock.

This man is visibly brain-damaged, and clearly has no business running so much as a hot dog stand, much less representing an entire state in the Senate. He has even less charisma than Trump, which I never thought possible. And barely any idea of what planet he's on at any given time.

u/MaximumEffort433 Maryland Nov 26 '22

u/MaximumEffort433 Maryland Nov 26 '22

I’m from Ohio. Maryland is looking like a nice place to live.

16

u/MaximumEffort433 Maryland Nov 26 '22

I'm biased, I love the heck out of my state; we passed marriage equality with a popular vote, it's not going anywhere; we passed abortion rights with a popular vote, it's here to stay; we just passed legal marijuana with a popular vote, we were a bit late to the party on that one, but better than never...

...and one other nice thing is that Maryland is pretty purple down at the ground level, even rational Republicans can find a corner to call their own. (I went to school across from a cow farm, the same cow farm that was there when my uncles went there, they've rebuilt the school since I graduated but the farm is unchanged.)

I love Maryland, it feels like a little America to me. We also have objectively the coolest flag in the union, so that's nice.

Edit: In fairness we also have some of the highest taxes in the nation and Baltimore is kind of a clusterfuck; I still love my state, but it's not perfect, either, just the best.

4

u/stealthzfish Nov 26 '22

I've been spending a lot more time in Baltimore recently, it has some very nice areas and there is some work being done to really bring other areas up. Leadership in baltimore is just extremely corrupt. His stance on Baltimore was one of the things I hated about Hogan. Refused to go there and just hurled bombs at the mayor from afar trying to force his "solutions." I'm hoping Moore can do better than that. One of the guys I run with actually saw him at the Turkey Trot 5k in Baltimore on Thanksgiving. If he can build a better relationship, working and otherwise, with the city I think that will be a great by-product of his election and could really improve Baltimore

u/Mooseandagoose Nov 26 '22

I look forward to casting my 4th ballot of the past two years for Warnock. And I guarantee the line will be manageable because we were just redistricted because my area of north Fulton got a little too blue in 2018 & 2020. We lost Lucy McBath as our house rep and it now leans more red than in the past two elections… funny how that happened, right. 🙄

Yup, it's beyond shameful that there are actually some GQP voters who think he's the "best person". That said, to many GQP voters, Walker only represents their "interests" because they know he's a puppet, that he will do exactly what the GQP tells him to do and that he stands a chance to win. (smh) In other words, their "interests" are simply that he becomes an extra Republican Senate vote, regardless of the fact that he's a complete twit, and the laughing stock of U.S. politics.

The people of the great state of Georgia have passed laws to allow voting - easy access to the ballot - and allows for a secure, transparent electoral process. The people of Georgia will elect a senator - and he will represent the people well. While I have a preference, it does not matter since I do not live in Georgia. But as Americans we can all be proud of how many voted in Georgia, how quickly and accurately the votes have been counted and how beautiful it is when the will of the people is respected.

As a Georgia resident, you can kindly fuck off. We are fighting the good fight here and sent 2 democrats to the senate last time.

If we can keep the momentum up for a few more cycles things can be very different.

I try to think the best of people, but if Walker wins this runoff... Well, I won't think poorly of the people who vote against him, if they're just outnumbered.

I don't get the "I'll vote for the same party no matter what" stance. I mean, there must be people who see how bad the republican party has become, but just can't bring themselves to vote for anyone else. It's so odd..

Edit: seems I'm getting down voted, likely by republicans who don't like criticism of republicans. However, this comment goes for both Democrats and Republicans who would vote for "their" party regardless of how bad it is.

I am from the south, and I can tell you this is indoctrinated into them. Most southerners are uneducated, and this is all they know because that is what their parents ingrained into their brain.

Most voters have little to no idea about who or what they are voting for they just vote party line. And often this ignorance means they are voting against their best interests. Things like voting in politicians that think workers should be fired without cause, want to take away their Social Security, strip their human rights.

Is Ken Paxton still offering a $1 million award for uncovering voter fraud? There’s an opportunity here.

Good Luck Warnock! Good Luck Georgia! From someone who has moved from a R state to a D state, is a proud D Lib and wants so badly for your state to be able to move the needle on your own behalf, for your own sake. You deserve it! You can do this!! The whole world is watching this race, let’s show them how much we really do love our democracy!!

I am not in Georgia, but I got my brother to vote in the general and runoff elections. He didn’t vote how I wanted him to, but at least I got him out to vote right? I knew he’d vote the way he did, so should I have still pushed him to vote ?
