LOL libtardz, sorry no fake votes for you! Vote by mail is a fraud and it's never worked! I don't want to be like Venizuela, I want to vote in person with my fellow trump fans, it's like a mini rally, so much fun, so much winning. This coronavirus hoax only seems to effect democrats lol look at where it's "hitting" such fake news, if it were real Arkansas would be shut down but its not, I'm still going to the gun range! wake 👆 liberals ur being played by the establishment
