It’s too late to use the mails. Given Supreme Court rulings I urge everyone to now vote in person; early vote or use drop boxes. Protect your health but don’t let the Court and the deliberately crippled Postal Service deprive you of your most precious civil right. Plan your vote.

Life gets in the way, I totally get it. Errands, kids’ homework, work meetings, yadda yadda. But we can’t afford to lose even ONE BALLOT to republican ratf*cking. So here’s what to do.
DO NOT RELY ON UNITED STATES POSTAL SERVICE TO DELIVER YOUR BALLOT IN TIME FOR NEXT TUESDAY. Shitty political operative Louis DeJoy has sabotaged that federal agency—a crime, btw—so it’s ON US to make sure our voices are heard.
Hand-deliver your completed, signed and sealed ballot to an authorized location: registrar, voting place or designated dropbox. Vote.org has a spiffy search engine to help you find a ballot dropbox in your area. Use it. Share it. Help your neighbors, pals and family do the same.
Our democracy hangs in the balance. ✅

In 2001, Will earned his Masters from The Medill School of Journalism, graduating with highest honors from the magazine sequence. As permanent member of Journalism’s National Honors Society, he’s been active in monitoring, writing and blogging about media and journalism ever since he graduated.
Obsessed with good storytelling and journalistic excellence, Will uses snark, humor and reason to distill dumb shit and make it fun. He’s a seeker/maker of non-consensus news, and helps you cure crankies by finding the nut in every story.
As for-profit media continues to fail us, it’s more important than ever to find reliable sources. Authentic storytelling exists—you just have to look for it. On this blog you’ll get ideas, not ideology. Sass with class. Reporting with rapport. Evidence with a touch of evil. You get the idea.
Support independent authors, writers, artists, journalists and professionals. Buy a book, leave a review, start a discussion. Show solidarity so that we can achieve greater balance and, in the end, learn more.
