Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
in California?
Record 22 Million Registered to Vote in California
The mammoth figure is larger than the population of any other state except Texas. And at nearly 88%, California is enjoying its highest percentage of eligible voters registered for a general election in 80 years.
According to the U.S. Election Project, a database compiled by an elections expert at the University of Florida, 9.1 million Californians had returned their ballots as of Thursday, double the number in 2016.
Of the 22 million potential voters, 46% are registered Democrats, 24% are Republican and 24% have registered as no party preference.
0 increase of CA electors.

Electoral college is not well understood.

But less room for SCOTUS shenanigans if Biden has a high seven or even eight digit lead in the popular vote.

Probably helps a little bit on the PR front.

Really the best bet against Trump trying to pull any shit is to win the states that will count early: Florida, North Carolina and Arizona should mostly be done on Election Night, as I understand it.  Texas may be close enough to done that it can be called too, although obviously I'm less optimistic about Biden's chances there.

We should have a decent idea of how Florida's going to shake out by 8.30 or so on the East Coast, and it'll probably be called officially by 10.30 or so.  Mail votes and early in-person votes are processed and counted ahead of time in Florida, so an enormous chunk of the vote will come in just after the polls close.  Thereafter the count should be fairly quick.

Florida plus any non-Iowa swing state wins it.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.

constitutional question(s) do you suppose a resident of CALIFORNIA might petition SCOTUS to review IN THE EVENT an appellate court errs in a finding of CALIFORNIA "election code"?
