How to Vote: Master Post

How to Vote in your State

The links below contain posts that will let you know everything you need to know in order to vote in your state: how to register, how to educate yourself on candidates, what is going to be contained on the ballot, what date you need to vote by, where you need to vote, and what you need to bring with you to vote.

I did not include any early voter information since that is subject to change over the next year or so. To find that information just Google, (Insert your state here) early voting 2016. Alternatively, your states election office should have all the information you need, you can find a link for your states office here.

anonymous asked:

while not thinking of who you are personally choosing to vote for, which democrat do you believe has the greatest chance of beating the republican candidate and winning the 2016 election? and why?

Honestly, I don’t think it matters who wins the Democratic Nomination, the Democrat is going to win this election. 

But don’t take my word for it, here it is coming from, a leading conservative news blog:

As Republicans gear up to “take back the White House” we all need to be aware that in 2012 if Romney had won the three swing states of Ohio, Florida and Virginia, he still would have lost the election to President Obama…

After totaling the electoral votes in all the solid blue states, it becomes apparent that even a below average Democrat presidential candidate could begin the race with a whopping 246 advantage.

Let me repeat, if only for the shock value – 246 votes out of 270 is 91 percent. That means the Democrat candidate needs to win only 24 more votes out of the remaining 292.  (There are a total of 538 electoral votes.)

This is because the GOP has been very successful at luring the racists out to vote (here is some info on how this was done).  

Now we are seeing huge demographic shifts in states all over the country. In California, there are now more Hispanics than Whites. And as of 2013, there are 5 states + DC that are Majority Minority, with a total of 15 states with a white population of 60% or less. (x)

These trends do not favor a party that has used the better part of 50 years using racism to win elections. That is a whole two generations that have never seen anything else but Republicans use race as a wedge issue. 

Welcome New Players!

I hope you all are having fun, it’s always good to see new faces in the community! As a resource blog, I’d like to help those who are still getting in the swing of things with some tips.

  • I have a masterpost of resources, including guides to the basics and certain aspects of the site.
  • Don’t fret if you can’t buy gems! Theres a good system in the community for buying gems with treasure. Just be sure if you are buying gems in the forums, that the person you’re buying them from has good reviews or a long established thread full of other customers that can confirm their trustworthiness! This goes for anything really thats not dragons.
  • I know it’s hard starting so late, but please don’t ask for free holiday sprites/bears/items. If theres a giveaway or someone offers one for free thats fine- but holiday items are generally expensive and seen as a status symbol, so if you want them, try your best to save and buy them!
  • If theres a dragon in someone else’s lair you’re interested in, send them a message! Sending random crossroads can sour some peoples opinions if you don’t communicate ahead of time.
  • Every day at 3am EST, the site goes into maintenance for 30 minutes, so keep your eye on the clock to make sure you aren’t doing anything important!
  • Don’t exalt your progens right away! Even if you don’t like their colors- You can purchase items to change their colors, genes, and breed! You don’t get money or rewards for exalting them, and theres no way to get them back if you do! Even after knowing that, if you want to exalt them go ahead!
  • If you have a question, check the forums! There will probably be someone whos asked your same question and it has been answered!
  • When holidays come around, if you want holiday currency try digging in that holiday’s element or going into the Coliseum! When the time comes, there will be many guides telling you where in the coli you get the most loot!
  • Have fun! Check out the forums for your flight and meet new people!

Theres way more you’ll learn, but these seem to be the biggest points that get brought up at every window! If you have any questions, feel free to message me!

Chapter 13 : The Muggle-born Registration Commission

“Ten people today and one of them the wife of a Ministry employee! Tut, tut… even here, in the heart of the Ministry!”

By the look of this, I don’t think that Umbridge even hates muggle-borns, she’s just annoyed by it, she seems even, disappointed, I don’t know about you guys, but I think that it’s even worse. It’s not even a political thing.

Harry tugged the Invisibility Cloak out from under his heavy black cloak, threw it over himself, and set off along the corridor in the opposite direction. Runcorn was so tall that Harry was forced to stoop to make sure his big feet were hidden.

Why does Harry hide under the Cloak if he looks like Runcorn ?

MUDBLOODS and the Dangers They Pose to a Peaceful Pure-Blood Society

Propaganda always makes me feel weird, especially this kind that reminds me just a little too much of the Holocaust.

Where there might have been a peephole on a Muggle front door, a large, round eye with a bright blue iris had been set into the wood — an eye that was shockingly familiar to anybody who had known Alastor Moody.

This legit makes me feel bad physically, what else did the Ministry did with Moody’s body?

NB: Youngest son currently at home, seriously ill, Ministry inspectors have confirmed.

Nice to know for sure that at least one part of their plan worked.

TRACKED. All movements are being monitored. Strong likelihood Undesirable No. 1 will contact (has stayed with Weasley family previously)

The Weasleys don’t deserve this, it’s really sad. But it makes me feel warm inside that even the (corrupt) Ministry knows that the Weasleys are close with Harry for some reason.

Harry made to follow him, but found his path blocked as Percy Weasley strode into the lift, his nose buried in some papers he was reading.
Not until the doors had clanged shut again did Percy realize he was in a lift with his father. He glanced up, saw Mr. Weasley, turned radish red, and left the lift the moment the doors opened again.

Percy already felt bad back then but didn’t know how to act, I kinda feel for him here.

“Expec — Expecto patronum,” said Hermione. Nothing happened.
“It’s the only spell she ever has trouble with,” Harry told a completely bemused Mrs. Cattermole. “Bit unfortunate, really … Come on, Hermione… .”

Interesting bit of trivia. Do you guys have any idea why that is ?

“Their blood is pure,” said Harry, and his deep voice echoed impressively through the hall. “Purer than many of yours, I daresay. Off you go,” he boomed to the Muggle-borns, who scurried forward into the fireplaces and began to vanish in pairs. The Ministry wizards hung back, some looking confused, others scared and resentful.

Harry : beautiful cinnamon roll too good for this world too pure

Thursday Night Pre-Reg Check In

Since so many of you are going to be at the hotel and hanging out on Thursday, we’ve decided to open pre-registration check-in at 7:00pm in the lobby. We’ll stay until at least 8:00pm, or for as long as we’re needed.

Nothing will be for sale at this time, this is only for people who pre-registered and want to get their badge early. 

Then you’ll be ready to rock.
