More reason to Vote by Mail

Donald Trump is trying to put the fear of God in people by spreading lies about what “could” happen on election day and saying the only way Hillary will win is if there is cheating on election day.  Now he’s calling on vigilantes to patrol polling places.

This is more reason than ever to vote by mail.   Contact your Supervisor of Elections (SOE) and make sure your Vote by Mail request has not expired.  If it has, request it be reinstated for ALL elections.  You can reach the Charlotte County Supervisor of Elections at 833-5400 or go online  Voting by mail is safe.  After you have cast your vote, you can go online to the SOE’s office and verify your vote has been received.  Vote SAFE in 2016.  Vote by mail.

And we can do this without violence.
