Voting by mail?

I am probably a bit premature with this reminder but.......


     I have been voting by mail for a time now due to my wife's illness.  With the covid virus difficulties and my desire to vote this November i am set to use an absentee ballot again this year.  

     NJ and many states, perhaps all of them, have web sites that tell you how to get your ballot so you can vote by mail.  If you plan to do this start getting that ballot soon!  It takes time to come.  I doubt any will be available until after the conventions finalize the possible candidates. That time is close.   Our ballots usually come about a month prior to the election date.

     Once you get it please remember that the post office will take some time to deliver your ballot.  

I guess i just want to remind everyone including myself that i can't wait until November to act if i'm going to use mail.

Thank you, Charlize.  An important reminder, and I totally agree.  Vote, and if your state allows, vote early.


(I was going to add, "vote often" but I then I thought, nah.  ?)

Living overseas I am always "absentee", but with mail delays (which I have noticed this year) I am hoping we receive our ballots in time to get them turned around. 
Thank you @Charlize!  it will be a same day Vote and mail for me this year.

The governor of NH has removed any barriers to mail in voting.  No reason needed other than you want to.

      Hei alle sammen,   I too get jealous of YouTube. But two things, 1) yes I transitioned very late in life, but those years, those scars on my body and my heart, I earned them, and they made me who I am at my core. Yes, I have made more than a few good choices and some really bad ones, but that makes me who I am. 2) Yes I would like to look in the mirror and see the woman I have dreamed I would be, but the life that led me to this place has been a hard one. Do I wish that life had had not so many twists and turns? Again yes. But when I look in the mirror I do see me, the woman I have become and I am proud of her for not quitting, for not giving up in defeat just because I'm not the head turner I had hoped to be. Add all that up and that reflection looks pretty (censored - beat you to it admins) good.  Remember girls: Illegitimi non carborundum Velsignelser Erikka

      https://www.kolotv.com/2020/09/29/california-will-house-transgender-inmates-by-gender-identity/   The CA legislature and Governor continue to do right by our community.  Let's hope other states follow suit.   Carolyn Marie

      Being completely honest, I am feeling trapped, drained and powerless.    I just came to terms that my parents won't let me move until I'm 18. Everyday lectures are draining my energy and will to do anything. I'm expected to preform at 100% everyday and they only give me 3 hours for school each day. I'm really stressing and they are expecting straight A's, which I have at the moment but I'm scared of even getting a B. I couldn't sleep last night and caffeine doesn't work on me, it's just makes me calm. I miss being in person for school because I had support but now I have nothing, of course online helps a lot but it's limited. I just feel cornered and blehhh.

      Well DeeDee The first 15 minutes was really akward and all I could think of was "what have I done" But after that the talk went really well. The worries went away as we talked a little about the topic and switched to another topic for a little while and then back. It was like just any other conversation. Im a bit scared but I feel a sligth relief as some weigths have been lifted off.   Victoria

      Victoria, that is wonderful news! You still have your friend, plus he may prove to be a real help for you moving forwards. I'll bet that 2hrs just flew past!

      Some of us have started the transition when we were very young and had the surgery also at a young age, and not after a man was married to woman ( one or two times) and also having children and grandchildren,then he decides to transition at age 60+...   Face, hands, body, voice etc... were not developed  yet to become as a man and with the hormones, our body fully changed to that woman you see  and admire.  Myself included and many other ladies that I know, have not touched our face surgically ( feminization). Later in life, we may have went under the knife to perhaps have “the French beauty” ( Bardot, Gabor, Lauren etc).   Thats my answer to the OP and Shay dear, we are not fake, that was bold for you to say that!

      I'm listening to all my Mac Davis downloadeds because he set the tone for my teenage years.

      Let me know if you need a co or partner usually on around 10 est most days

      Being like us is not easy and it takes all of us to support us - when you're down look here and you'll find someone to help - when you're up do the same for another one of us who is down. BOTH will make you feel better. Hug

      Well I finally got both responses in.   I feel like my mom gave her usual unconditional love statement, however, she is really nervous I can tell about the idea of me transitioning and what it means for me. I know it comes from a place of love, it just a thing where I am not worried about it because if I am not me, how can I be happy. So I think there is some work there that is going to have to take place.   My dad says he understands how this has probably tormented me for so long. He sounds very supportive and is being kind of inquisitive with me. He has kind of stepped on a few land mines (some questions that I right now just gloss over). I think he will be supportive of the transition.   Now that the first round is done, I think it is time to reflect and decide on when to execute the next round. I feel like it may be difficult to talk to my brothers about it, though one is estranged on his accord.
