Dropped off my ballot, YES, I voted for Biden/Harris and I'm proud of it. No problems, thank you Santa Barbara County Elections Division for making it easy.

A man who has served his country for decades, with sons in the military? Who loves his family and will listen to scientists? If you are not proud of this candidate, even if you disagree with his policies, then there is something wrong with you. Not even Melania is proud of the Donald.

How can anyone be proud of voting for either party in this election. It’s a truly dumb situation we find ourselves in That these are our two options. I can obviously see and understand voting for Biden, but being proud of it? That truly inconceivable to me...

I’m trying to decide whether to drop my ballot at the main post office or the admin building. Maybe I’ll go with the PO—not likely to have protestors there, are we?

Just a data point here: dropped off my VBM ballot at the post office--signed & dated & no postage necessary--and thanks to BallotTrax.com I already know it was received and will be counted. Couldn't have been easier. Thank you, Santa Barbara County Elections Division and USPS!

Take some pepper spray or a cattle prod with you when you deliver your ballot to the box!

Harassing voters to block them from depositing their ballot. Or panhandling or protesting in a high traffic public space. Initial report was too vague to tell, but interesting knee-jerk reactions on full display as expected. Thanks for sharing, everyone.

Everybody knows any problems in SB with voting are caused by Trumpers with nothing better to do with their Saturday than be fascist goons. Byzantium, your comments are trash as always.

Our Next Door site has some guy who is spreading false info about not receiving his ballot. I think the Trumpsters are just trying to stir the pot. There were dozens of people in the thread commenting on how the voting process for them had gone very smoothly. I think planting comments like this will be a strategy to rile voters. Please be informed and ignore these trolls.

Not all trolls here, but a surprising number of them are. I still only hear them criticize without any solutions that will help the 99% of us and not just the 1%. Anyone who starts off a post with "You ignorant fool" should lose their posting privileges.

@Pit, I generally agree with most of what you say. And I'm just as frustrated with the extreme right wing community members that live in this town. But, just because I disagree with them doesn't make them all trolls. A couple, ya probably, but the majority just have different views. With that said, I'm continuously shocked by how right wing a lot of our locals truly are.

At least on NextDoor you can report trolls to the moderators and then disable their comments so you don't have to see them again. It works pretty well.

Funny how folks jump to conclusions. The only protesters I could find out about today, in SM and SB, were a group of women urging people to vote and protesting against the Trump administration, the perceived threat to Roe v Wade and SCOTUS appointment. From the news on KEYT it didn't appear that they were harassing anyone.

11:37 - Interesting you talk of "jumping to conclusions," as you yourself say the only "protesters" you heard about were these women, yet you imply they were the subject of this alert. Got news for ya - could have been someone else.

"Perceived" threat? Uhhh, it's a REAL threat to Roe v. Wade, and we WON'T STAND FOR IT. We will NEVER go back to the dark days before Roe. So sick of having to fight for basic reproductive healthcare. UGhhhhhhh. It's 2020 and even Ireland, the most religious of Western countries, has legalized abortion, yet here we are in Puritanical hell.

I don't get it. How would voter intimidation even work? How would this benefit the intimidator? So somebody goes to drop off a ballot, but how would an intimidator know who that person is going to vote for? I doubt people are going to the polls and loudly announcing their ballot choices as they walk to the ballot box.

Basically, the more people vote, because of the changed demographic in this country, the more likely the GOP loses. So, they work to suppress the vote while the other side works to get out the vote.

Without more information this should be treated just as the sourdough story has been. Please folks, stop trolling and let us get back to some sort of normalcy.

Why have elections anyway, so say the Communists. Relax !!! I'm only kidding. NOT. Guard your ballots.

So say the Trumpists, actually. Too bad your leader isn't likable enough for the nation to let him be the dictator. But keep working on it.

LCP, you'd be pretty angry too, if a political party was trying to get in your bedroom, in your reproductive healthcare and TAKE AWAY YOUR BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS.

ALEXBLUE, Dear God, I hope so!!! Cannot wait until the Dump show is over and we never have to hear his name again.

SAIL380, that's because there is NO organized real group called "Antifa" that's Trump and Q-Anon trying to make a thing out of nothing. Antifa is a movement, NOT an organized group, and there's a big difference, if you don't know, look it up. It means ANTI-FASCIST, and we all should be anti-fascist, unless we don't remember what happened in Nazi Germany.

Thanks for the info! It's from "timscast news" by Tim Pool.

Yeah be careful of Antifa, they have been caught doing dozens of assaults on unarmed people and trying to kidnap two governors. Oh wait, those were Dump supporters.

Chelsea's comment was a verbatim copy/paste from a well-known Trump supporter who has figured out how to monetize Youtube by spewing noise on social media and drawing people to his website and Youtube channel. The more controversy he stirs up the more money he makes.

Haha, I don't know, Chelsea, sounds like you're the one freaking out. Don't worry, Trump will lose and go back to his crooked businesses, Biden will be President, things will calm down, you'll be just fine.

By the sound of some of these comments, there are a lot of angry liberals out there. Chill people, vote and be happy that you can. Have a nice day!

Trump Is Already WINNING In Key Early Voting, Democrats FREAKING OUT Over Numbers In Key Swing State. By every metric Democrats should be dominating in swing states but many metrics have Republicans close or even winning. Democrats are growing very worried about key swing states already flipping Trump even though early voting favors Democrats. With Republicans sealing voter registration numbers Trump is on track to win several key swing states. Joe Biden is in trouble if these numbers remain stable. They aren’t doing well enough to win on election night or even with late mail in votes. Trump 2020. lol
