How Trump Can Win

A Biden victory is not a sure thing.  Consider this from yesterday's The New York Times The Morning newsletter:

  • Trump will narrowly win re-election if the results differ from the current polls by as much as the 2016 results differed from the final polls.
  • In this scenario, he would win all the states where he leads or trails very narrowly.
  • Even with those, Trump would need one more, and the most likely seems to be Pennsylvania, where Biden’s lead has hovered around 5% points
  • Trump trails in Pennsylvania by less than he does in Wisconsin or Michigan, two other states he won in 2016. “Pennsylvania has to be troubling the Biden campaign,” the Times reporter says
  • Last week, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court sided with Trump and ruled that election officials could not count mailed ballots that arrived in only a single envelope, and not sealed in the “secrecy” envelope
  • One local official told The Philadelphia Inquirer that the ruling could lead to more than 100,000 ballots being thrown out
  • In 2016, Trump won Pennsylvania by 44,000 votes!

We have 40 days to make sure this does not happen!

Here's what you can do NOW to make sure Biden and local Democrats win:

Here's what you can do to make sure we have a fair election and every vote gets counted:

Here's what you can do to make sure YOUR vote counts:

Mail-in Ballots are Coming Soon! When your mail-in ballot arrives:

  • Vote for each race as soon as your ballot arrives.  There is no "straight party" voting.
  • NO NAKED BALLOTS! Put your completed ballot into the “secrecy envelope” first.  If you don't it will not be counted!
  • Put the secrecy envelope inside the pre-addressed envelope, sign in the space provided on the back, and write the date of signing.
  • Check out this video to see exactly how to complete your ballot.
  • Mail your ballot back as soon as you complete it, no postage required.
  • Beginning October 3, you may use a Drop Box to deliver your own and only your own properly completed (see above) ballot. Click here for details.
  • Click here for full details on all your voting options

We know that these appeals seem relentless.  The fact is that as much work as we have done, there is much more to do.  Thank you for what you have done, and please, consider what else you can do between now and November 3 to make sure Pennsylvania carries the Biden-Harris team to victory, we flip the state legislature, and sweep the state-wide races.

News from MontcoPA:

MontcoPA New Voting System Demo, October 5, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Montco PA will have an Open House of their new #MontcoPA voter verified paper ballot Voting System!

Residents will have the opportunity to test out the new voting system, which is also ADA compliant, in College Hall on the Central Campus of the Montgomery County Community College, 340 Morris Road, Blue Bell, PA 19422

More information on the new voting system can be found at https://www.montcopa.org/votingsystem

Click here to register for the October 5 event

Montgomery County Voter Services will set up five simulated polling locations for voters to experience the new system first-hand.

The new system replaces the electronic push-button voting machines the County purchased in 1996 that were at the end of their useful life. The old machines also did not meet the state mandate for counties to have a voting system with a verifiable paper trail in place for the 2020 Presidential election.

With the new system, most voters will use a pen to fill out a ballot and have an opportunity to check it for accuracy before submitting it to a scanner that tabulate the votes and keep the ballot in a secure container for audits or recounts.

Each polling place will also have an ADA touchscreen machine that can be used to select candidates. When the voter is done filling out the ballot, they can review their selections and print out a paper ballot that will be submitted to a scanner for tabulation the same as the ballots filled out by hand.
