One of the details they failed to tell you about the postal service is they didn't tell states they might not deliver mailed ballots in time because of delays, but because some states allow you to request a ballot as few as four days before the election, which doesn't allow enough time for a ballot to be mailed out and returned before the election.

im so unenthusiastic about this DNC and fed up with ALL of Congress.. furloughed from work since march. federal benefits expired, congress does nothing, and goes on vacation.. state benefits expire in a few weeks, NC state congress doing nothing. how the hell am I supposed to be excited about a convention when I am choosing between bills and food?

I'm kind of surprised they'd say Kasich is known as being an asshole. in Ohio, he's pretty well-liked across the board and is generally considered to be a good man and an efficient governor, even if he has some policies people may not agree with.
