This is great news but, if you can, please safely return your absentee ballot in person at an Early Voting site or your local Board of Elections ASAP to ensure it is counted.

The Supreme Court allowed the counting of ballots in North Carolina received up to nine days after the election as long as the ballots are postmarked by Election Day, a victory for Democrats in another key state.

Why Trump Can’t Take Red Counties in North Carolina for Granted

“In a year like this, in an election like this, a point or two in a community like Gaston County could determine the statewide race."

Even some people in Gastonia, N.C., are a little perplexed about why the president was holding a rally in a small community that’s already in his camp.

THE NIGHT THEY DROVE OLD DIXIE DOWN. When you know that your time in the spotlight is slowly coming to an end, you finally start listening to your high paid advisors. Trump advisors pleaded with him to be calm in debate and give Joe Biden more time to talk praying for Biden to misspeak, because Biden has a stuttering problem. It could have worked except Biden is highly intelligent, experienced, compassionate, empathetic, and full of LOVE. TRUMP on the other hand is the lonely man in the world like Ebenezer Scrooge. Remember he begged the highly educated ladies who live in the suburbs to love him. Like the lazy student he wants attention, but he only gets it when he turns the class out. James Brown called it “talking loud and saying nothing”. The only job for TRUMP now, who knows more about religion than GOD, would be a greeter at a mega church. Please do not let him serve on the committee that counts the money after the 1st, 2nd and love offering (smile). Please vote TRUMP, the least racist man in the world, and his GOP brothers and sisters out on or before November 3rd. James J. Hankins

This weekend I helped paint a mural in Lincolnton, NC. It used the colors of the Pride rainbow, skin tones black, brown, and white and the colors of flags where Hispanic folks live. The message it spelled out was "UNITED WE STAND." It lasted a day. This happened Tuesday night.
