The U.S.is on course to give Americans more ways to cast ballots than ever! Trump has done everything in his power, and  even outside his power, to sabotage the election. He suggested postponing the election and holding a re-vote, warned baselessly about rampant fraud and pushed his supporters to vote twice. He  impaired  mail delivery & sent misinformation to voters about mail-in ballots. But it won't work. There is  more certainty than ever that their ballots will be accurately counted. 96% & 97% of votes cast will have paper backup. All states have protections against voting twice. A ll but 6 states  either send ballots automatically or allow voters to request them without needing a special excuse.  All but 6 states now offer some form of early voting.The best thing we can do is counter misinformation with accurate information, such as this interactive guide to voting in each state."
