    I have no idea how long I have been voting in a Presidential Elections

    - but it seems every time, someone is wondering if we are going to have an election due to "something".

    Can governors do a hard Lockdown and only count the mail in votes?

    I think every citizen has the right to vote. The election could be extended with mail-in only.

    I can't believe they misspelled "Pork and Beans!"

    Trump has declared before the virus is a War. Shutting down the polling places until later could be an alternative. Remember one must have an excuse to mail in and the virus is it. However no way the post office could get out all the ballots to registered voters in time if Trump declares close to election day. The democrats would obviously complain and take it to court which would tie it up longer..

    I think Mr Trump will win when the polling data is collected the night of the vote,  THEN the dems will go crazy and say not yet we have to count all the mail in votes and this is when it will get ugly, and crooked.........  need to get everyone out to vote in person with a big enough margin the mail ins won't matter..........

    Not correct.  No 'excuse' needed or required to request a ballot be mailed for return mailing or drop off at local court house plus early 'in person' voting has been taking place for a few weeks here at every local county court house.  Regular voting polls will be open on Nov. 3rd.

    The hard left is pushing a narrative that the magical Covid-19 (the Trump-Virus) is again out of control, wreaking havoc in our streets and killing anyone who gets a sniff of it.

    Hogwash, I say.  Death rates continue to drop, and as more and more people are infected the more resistant we become to its propagation.

    There will not be martial law, and there will be an election.  It will be crooked and as corrupt as any in recorded American history, but it will still look like an election.

    Yes there will be an election and I sure hope TRUMP cleans biden's clock. Agree with no martial law. Trump is too great of a president to even think about doing that.
    Oh wait a giant asteroid is headed for earth and is expected to impact on the day before the  election, it is about the size of a average refrigerator. We are  doomed for sure!
