The United States of America’s Election Day is finally here and it’s tomorrow. If you still haven’t voted, please make sure you get out early as lines are reported to be very long.
This is an unprecedented election unlike any other for various reasons. Each person’s reason differs one to the other. But, we all agree that this year’s election is different.
The difference can also be seen in the number of pre-election-day voting that has already taken place. Click here to read more.
Get out and vote or mail it in postmarked by November 3rd!

I finally received my ballot papers and mailed them back, over the weekend! Yippee!!
But, I am still “angst about the outcome for some weird, but understandable reasons. Weird in the sense that I have never ever being angst about Presidential elections. Why now?
Understandably in the sense that we know that these are critical times in the history of our nation, America. As such it is eagerly awaited and everything is being done to ensure that folks get out to vote.” (ThinkTalk, September 2020). I hope you have voted, or are getting ready to vote, and certainly will vote in person or by mail. Remember, D-Day is tomorrow!
Please join me in praying that all will go smoothly now, during, and after, and that peace will reign.

For your information, I had to call my County’s Election Office to ascertain why my information was missing from the Secretary of State’s website. The lady pleasantly explained to me that it was because I used a physical Post Office address. A real home address was also required. Since I supplied both, my ballot papers were mailed and received. I was glad that I took the initiative to call at the time that I did, which was in time before the deadline, rather than waiting endlessly for ballot papers that will never show up. And no-one had the courtesy to let me know!
Regarding the Bills and Propositions on the Ballot
There are 115 measures on the November 3 ballot, twelve (12) of which are for California.
Do you know what propositions are on the November 3rd ballot for your State? Find out by clicking your State here. It is an interactive U.S. map. Select the Year 2020-2029 from the Table, then select the Year 2020. You might need to scroll down to read the detailed information.
By now, you already know who you’re voting for. If not, you have one more day to do your research.
Regarding the propositions, do not merely listen to the paid-ads, but research and critically think through every point; ask if it makes sense or not.
The semantics used on the Ballot regarding the Propositions can be confusing such that one tends to agree with it rather than voting it down. Remember that most of the bills were initiated and sponsored by those who wanted it passed. So, be diligent in your reading and understanding of each measure.
Remember that whatever you do, do it totally with your heart knowing that you have done your best in exercising your civic duty and rights.
I pray for God’s outcome in the Election tomorrow.
