    I don't agree with that, but I also have to view it from their perspective to understand why.

    I agree completely. I agree with reforming the police and shifting some responsibility (and funding) to other agencies to handle, but calling it "defund the police" was the first and biggest mistake.

    The problem with Florida is that they'll attempt to hide something in in. They had a ballot measure last election which was sold as "open primaries", but once you read it, it was actually jungle primaries. Had that been the case in 2018, we'd only have had two republican options for governors...

    My hatred of Trump was the only reason I voted for Hillary in 2016. Had it been literally anyone other than Trump or Ted Cruz, I'd likely have voted Republican. Same for this year. Had it been almost any other republican vs Biden, I'd likely have voted GOP.

    Only if they're a far-right nutjob. In 2016, I truly hated Hillary - but between her and Trump, it was a no brainer. Same for 2020. I can't stand Biden, but between him and Trump it's also a no brainer.

    Keeping in mind that your info is generally verified as valid or invalid when you first register to vote (if it's invalid, you get a letter telling you to go fix it before you can be registered), and that a photo voter ID is required to go vote, the system already works well. It's literally...
