The leaves are falling...

...and so are the votes!

Early voters (like Bern and me) are setting records around the country. Unimaginable numbers compared to 2016.

And here's the thing--something like 12% of them are from people who didn't vote last presidential election.

Another thing--many of them are millennial voters--a group that vastly under-voted in 2016 because neither candidate struck their fancy.

This early voting surge--with 10 more days to early vote--encourages me that voter suppression in many Red states is not working.

It also encourages me that this fall may lead to a happy winter, with President-elect Biden preparing his cabinet and advisors and the Dems in charge of both Houses of Congress.

The falling leaves are lovely--and so is that thought....

(all opinions here are mine and mine alone....)
