    November 3, 2020 was the last day to vote, if your vote was not in when the day ended, your vote don’t count.
    Only this past election has been allowed to continue on and on and on and on. this is ridiculous! More time to enter fake ballots. How many dead people, cats, dogs, and illegals have voted in GA, and had their vote count?
