re: Mail-in Voting

Standard

They don’t count these until the night of the election, after the networks have called the election. Please vote in person-it’s a one-shot against voter suppression. Trump is in power and is sabotaging the other kinds of votes.

That is not entirely correct. MANY jurisdictions begin counting mail-in ballots (the ones that have arrived early, in any event) well before Election Day.
 
While voting in person may be a good idea for those healthy enough to risk it, they also risk finding they’ve been purged from the roles if they wait until Election Day. And, of course, in jurisdictions which force voters to vote on a 100% unverifiable touchscreen voting system on Election Day at the polls, they should DEFINITELY vote with a HAND-MARKED paper absentee ballot (though delivering it in person on or before Election Day is a very good idea.)
