For the US presidential election:

In case your narrate is a swing narrate, vote for Biden. Otherwise, vote Green — vote for Howie Hawkins and Angela Walker for president/VP. I delayed my decision hoping that Biden would enhance the progressive programs that the US and the sphere desperately need, however by picking Harris he reaffirmed his rejection of them. If we preserve balloting for the plutocratist lesser monstrous, every time the plutocrats give us something worse than the earlier lesser monstrous.
