A functioning democracy no one has to take two shifts off work to exercise their God given right to vote Can New York do about our. Yes The New York City Board elections you're right. It's run by a by New York City and it is an an old fashioned, the political model that frankly should be thrown out. Important questions posed by my colleague just last hour the New York governor Cuomo happens to be a Democrat and we've been covering data on the surging voter turnout, and also on the many ways that incompetent and negative state systems or outright voter suppression can still make it to our devoting America. So you can see these lines in both red and blue areas alike, we documented Republican crackdowns last week today. Here's a scene and Democrat, run Harlem whereas they were just discussing many hours in line to vote local officials say they're adjusting to this record breaking interest or look at over in Democratic Run Philadelphia lines were long some keep spirits with the CIA slide. Back. Priscilla. It. Is, fun to dance if you have the time to kill but many people don't, and this hits working class people even harder at the same time as you deal with this of course, we are seeing people celebrate this civic act. We don't want to lose sight of that. California's Compton cowboys delivering their mail ballots on horseback. Meanwhile, an astronaut proudly casting her ballot from the International Space Station at voters making an early start to an election tradition right here putting voting stickers at the grave of the Great Crusaders Susan B. Anthony. This is a reminder that two things we think can be true at once it is still too hard to exercise this right in many parts of America, and that includes in blue places like the lines of New York no matter how difficult this is not only worth doing but yes, we think worth celebrating. Then that spirit we bring on people who know their way around so many elections, James CARVILLE MSNBC, political analyst, and Cecile. Richards former president of planned parenthood and co-founder of the women, rights, group, super, majority, good data, both you. Good to see him. James. SAY IT AIn't. So why does it take so long to vote as documented last week a worse problem with suppression from Republican States. But right there is New York. So the lines actually be that long or should they have handled better? Of course, it should be held. But if you have a hodgepodge system, how many different elections administrators we have in the United States and my friend Mike McDonald University of Florida North Mortis in any by go north but hundred, fifty, million people voting. So it's a lot of stress on the system in any any cycle this particular stress on the system in this cycle. Is So many people are GonNa be boating and not just urge people. You know that they're acting dancing and right in line exercise may right just just got to stay focused in brings us get this thing dot but it's GonNa be. It's GonNa be difficult for a lot of people voted says, he'll on state of taxes full right in both of ours as right there. Just sucking it up and gutting it out and saying I'm white line is something at stake here I love my country I'm GonNa vote into going to do it. Amen to. THAT CECILE Having discussed the structural part let's talk about the political part. Surging turnout out in Texas, surging early vote nothing's done till. It's done as we emphasize. But the early numbers show a coalition that does look more like an Obama. Coalition. Yes and but I just what James. Said I think I actually voted yesterday waited more than three hours in line to vote in New York and usually New Yorkers complain about everything no one was complaining they were resolute. They were determined my favorite comment was someone ask women how long? How Long Have you been waiting devotes she said four years and that I think really captures the spirit of what people are bringing to the polls It is record turnout, enthusiasm complacency these are not. Issues that we're dealing with it is as James said, it's the ability to deal with massive quantities voters and I think some of your own numbers show a incredible surge among democratic women. Voters I think actually few add up the independent Republican women. Democratic women pretty much matched that in terms of both early vote and requests for early absentee voting. So women are as we've always believed, they would be They're going to dominate this election cycle and they're showing it by showing up early. James, we always like to hear your views on the strategy part, which which is so interesting and you've been inside it and James sometimes when the kids say keep it one hundred, you always keep it one hundred, right you keep it real. Right. Gap Take Me Real. It it? So let me ask you that's my prelude to I. Know You love a job i. know you think he's better than Donald Trump and I'm curious as a strategist. Would you think about these numbers the Biden activities sense the convention? They've got a lot public campaigning. But you're going to see in this chart. Quite, a bit of time spent virtual campaigning initially now, they're back out on the road more, and then you got a bunch of days where you got no public events whatsoever..

No, it's very reasonable warning 'cause here's one of the problem with the last week deadlines is that you count some of the votes and you say J. Joe's down by five thousand here, and you still have time to gin up five thousand votes in a way it's easier. To do with mail ballots than it is to do you know electron so and that's the problem ain't. If we're going to have these things, we really do need to have firm deadlines and enforceable deadlines so that we can get real count not just have an open and all these disputes about votes that are later discovered or come in at the you know come in after election day it's going I think it's going to be a mess.

There's no question that this happened it appears that he is now agreed to plead guilty to doing this. There's going to be some sort of plea arrangement we saw. Charging documents filed in federal court today we do not know yet an I should I should stress that he is saying his his lawyers appear to still be saying that it was somehow an accident that he he deeply regrets happened. It doesn't seem like that something that could easily happen as an accident but. In any event, what we don't know yet is is what the plea agreement will be where they'll be jail time. has Mr. Client.
