  • - I find myself holding my breath

  • just because I'm so stressed,

  • or just so anxious about this whole thing.

  • (patriotic music)

  • - This year, I'm voting for Biden and Harris

  • because the number one thing on my agenda

  • is to get Trump out the White House.

  • - This year, I'm voting President Trump

  • because he's the most pro-life candidate

  • that we have on the ballot.

  • - I'm going for Biden because I want to see change

  • for disabled, black, immigrant, indigenous,

  • LGBTQ plus, and trans lives.

  • - There's no such thing as a neighbor party

  • or a working class party in the United States

  • and so, I most often register as a Democrat

  • 'cause you have to work within the system.

  • But, I'm also not foolish.

  • - I'm a conservative,

  • and I'm gonna be voting for President Trump this year.

  • You shouldn't be voting for somebody

  • just because you don't respect or like the other candidate

  • they're running against.

  • And I really wanted to find out

  • why everybody hated Trump so much.

  • I never really found out.

  • - This year, we're faced with the prospect

  • of either having a democratic republic,

  • where everybody gets a voice in government

  • and has their civil rights protected,

  • or having flat out fascism.

  • - I hear a lot of people pointing fingers at Trump.

  • He's a fascist.

  • Okay, tell me why he's a fascist.

  • Please do the research and inform yourself

  • so you can actually elaborate on these opinions

  • that you might have.

  • - This year's election is very important to me,

  • because I believe the left is trying to expand

  • the powers of the government through democratic socialism.

  • As a conservative,

  • I believe we need to have limited government.

  • - I don't wanna believe that I live in a country

  • where the leader is openly racist and self-serving.

  • In 2020.

  • 'Cause I mean, in America it's like,

  • "Been there, done that, got the tee shirt."

  • - Not only am I worried about my

  • and other disabled people's rights,

  • in terms of education, employment, healthcare, and housing,

  • but I'm also worried for our immigrant communities

  • and families.

  • - 2016, I voted for Trump

  • and I'm glad I get to vote for him again,

  • because he has done an excellent job

  • with the last four years.

  • - After three and a half years,

  • nearly four years of con after con

  • and theft after theft,

  • if you're still on the con,

  • well, once again, I don't know how to tell you this.

  • But, you're just plum simple.

  • - I hope that the people who voted for Trump in 2016

  • come out to the polls in 2020

  • and make a better decision than they did last election.

  • (intense music)

  • - So, it is currently Election Day.

  • I have voted, I got up bright and early at 6:30 a.m.

  • to go vote.

  • No significant news has come out as of right now.

  • - I haven't slept much (laughs) last night.

  • As usual, down here in Orlando, Florida,

  • we're still in the thick of an election.

  • Florida's been the thick of crooked elections

  • ever since Hector were a pup.

  • There's, well, all the way back

  • to 1876, when the Florida electors were in disarray,

  • it threw the election into the House of Representatives

  • and they didn't even bother to settle it there.

  • What happened was a back-room deal

  • between Rutherford B. Hayes and Samuel Tilden

  • which left our African American brothers and sisters

  • at the mercy of Jim Crow laws

  • and the Klan and repression.

  • And basically, they were disenfranchised

  • until the Civil Rights Act of 1960.

  • - We might not have a winner today

  • because of so many mail-in ballots

  • and, I think, there's a lot of people voting today.

  • - It's been predicted that more Trump supporters

  • were gonna come out on Election Day

  • to cast our ballots just because we don't trust

  • the mail-in ballot system.

  • - Thankfully, the polling location isn't too far from me,

  • so I can literally drive to it.

  • Who knows how accessible it is gonna be,

  • so I guess we're just gonna have to find out.

  • And literally, last week, we had Hurricane Zeta hit us

  • really bad, too.

  • Things were missing that I literally forgot

  • about the elections until yesterday.

  • I mean, yesterday the power went out a couple of times

  • because they're still fixing the electricity poles.

  • So I would imagine that accessibility

  • and getting to those polls is probably

  • one of the largest issues right now in Louisiana.

  • - There's gonna be a lot of breathing exercises

  • goin' on in this house. (laughs)

  • (speaking Spanish)

  • (laughs)

  • - I remember I entered briefly once

  • with Disability Rights Louisiana

  • and one of the biggest main issues in voting

  • for them was accessibility.

  • Getting to the polls is very hard for people in New Orleans.

  • And, again, the countryside is just as bad.

  • I can't imagine the voting turnout

  • if it was accessible to everyone.

  • - It's currently 6:49 p.m. Eastern Standard time

  • on Election Night.

  • I'm feeling good, things are looking good so far.

  • Trump has a lead in New Hampshire, Indiana,

  • and Biden is leading Kentucky.

  • - They haven't called Florida yet,

  • but it's not looking good.

  • I think it'll go to Trump.

  • - I planned, originally, to sit in front of my TV

  • and bite my nails until it was all over,

  • but that was driving me insane.

  • And I don't know if you can tell in my voice,

  • I'm very anxious, I'm very trying to harness my emotions.

  • - So it's currently 7:15 p.m. Eastern Standard time.

  • Things are continuing to improve for President Trump.

  • He is winning eight to three in terms

  • of electoral votes.

  • Biden blew his lead in Kentucky, Trump has won Kentucky.

  • - I've been waiting for the polls to come in.

  • So far, Trump is trending in a lot of good states.

  • I mean, we had a lot of victories in states like,

  • you know, Mississippi, Louisiana.

  • They went on to call Florida eventually.

  • We'll see.

  • I'm super excited about it, though.

  • - When Indiana turned red today, they day of the election,

  • I can almost understand how people

  • who don't vote or people who are not fans of voting

  • can feel like my little vote didn't make a difference.

  • But, I think that it's really important

  • to watch tonight's coverage

  • and to see these electoral college votes

  • and get an understanding of how the system works

  • and know that we don't live in a country

  • that's just majority vote.

  • So, obviously, I'm disappointed in Indiana

  • for turning red, but it's a group project

  • and I gotta count on everybody else to pull through.

  • - The only states that I'm particularly worried about

  • right now is Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Texas.

  • - Tell me something good, Joe.

  • - [Joe] We feel good about where we are.

  • - Do you, 'cause I'm a little iffy.

  • - It is too early to make a solid determination

  • at this point, we'll have to wait

  • until, you know, a later day.

  • We don't know when that day's gonna be.

  • It could be a week from now, we don't know.

  • (intense music)

  • - Voter suppression remains a winning strategy

  • for the GOP.

  • - I believe we can come together

  • if everyone agrees that these weren't the best candidates,

  • then how 'bout we just, you know,

  • provide better candidates next time?

  • Do our best to go out

  • and make sure that we vouch for people

  • that we truly believe represents

  • the ethos of America, right?

  • I'm still friends with everybody,

  • you still can come over for brisket, I don't care.

  • If we didn't win this time, we'll definitely win next.

  • We'll just go hard.

  • That's all I gotta say.

  • - Whatever the result is, we're still gonna organize

  • and we're still gonna fight for our communities,

  • we're still gonna take care of each other.

- I find myself holding my breath
