A number of Democrat-run states are trying to prolong Election Day by several days, if not longer, by extending absentee ballot deadlines, and the courts are inconsistent on when these ballots must be in.
While the U.S. Supreme court failed to block a three-day extension in Pennsylvania and a nine-day extension in North Carolina, the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled on Thursday that absentee ballots in Minnesota must be in by 8pm on Election Day.
Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., has been a vocal advocate for mail-in voting, but the failed 2020 presidential candidate turned on a dime with the 8th Circuit’s ruling.
“Because of LAST MINUTE ruling, Minnesota DO NOT put ballots in mail any more,” she tweeted. “In the middle of a pandemic, the Republican Party is doing everything to make it hard for you to vote. Stand up for YOUR rights: Vote in-person or take mail-in ballot directly to ballot box.”

With her tweet, Klobuchar just undermined Democrats’ entire premise that mail-in voting was critically needed. Either that or she’s now advocating for them to sacrifice their lives to elect Democrats.
The party has been exploiting the pandemic to allow more time for mail-in ballots to be received. It’s not clear why COVID-19 would prevent a person from dropping their ballot in the mail on time. In most cases, the ballots were sent out weeks ago.
As for in-person voting, if folks can mask up to shop at their local grocery store they can also mask up and vote — if the nation was able to navigate the Civil War to vote, so too can we overcome the Chinese plague.
A tight race Tuesday will likely result in post-election chaos, with ballots trickling in for days in some states. The possibility of the outcome ultimately being decided in a courtroom rather than the ballot box also grows exponentially.
Here’s a sampling of responses to the story of Klobuchar flipping from Twitter, led by actor James Woods, who said, “When their scams are blocked, they turn on a dime.”

If this were a Republican, Twitter would have already banned her for deliberately attempting to suppress mail-in votes from people who can’t physically vote in-person due to the pandemic. https://t.co/FKFR3c2REC

If Trump wins, the Democrats push for mass mail in voting and their late realization it was a catastrophic mistake will likely be written about as one of the biggest political malpractices in history https://t.co/YTfs0duqtO

No, kitten. The state legislature wrote your election laws and statutes. The court is simply enforcing them. This has nothing to do with Republicans. Don’t like the laws, elect different people and change them.

Minnesota elections are best known for pulling ballots out of car trunks.

The “In a middle of a pandemic” excuse never comes up when people are rioting.

So if it means keeping Democrats in power, it’s suddenly ok to risk the lives of everyone in Minnesota 🤷♀️?? Or are we finally admitting that voting in person isn’t a threat? 🤔
