As president, Hillary will: Automatically register voters.

Voting rights We should be making it easier to vote, not harder.

As president, Hillary will:

Automatically register voters. Hillary will work so that every citizen is automatically registered to vote when they turn 18, unless they opt out, and make sure that voter registration rolls are accurate and secure.

Repair the Voting Rights Act. Hillary will fight to restore the portions of the Voting Rights Act that were struck down by the Supreme Court to make sure that all citizens enjoy the full protections they deserve—especially in states where they have been disproportionately targeted by laws that restrict voting access to the polls. She will fight back against harmful restrictions on voting across the country, so that minority voters, young people, low-income voters, seniors, and women are equally capable as others at expressing their voices and their votes in our democracy.

Set a national standard for early voting. In an effort to reduce long lines and give more people with family or work obligations an opportunity to vote, Hillary will set a national standard for early voting, giving voters at least 20 days to vote in the evenings or on weekends before election day.

Restore voting rights. Americans who have paid their debts to society and have served their sentences should have the right to vote, and Hillary will support legislation to make sure their voting rights are restored.

Take action. Hillary will implement the recommendations of the president’s bipartisan commission to improve voting.

Charities thinking twice about galas at Trump's Mar-a-Lago : AP

WASHINGTON (AP) — A staple of Palm Beach's high-end philanthropy circuit, the Mar-a-Lago Club boasts rich history, an 800-seat ballroom and ocean views. But some major charities and fundraisers are now concerned with a different feature: the property's owner, Donald Trump.

Following the leak of Trump boasting about grabbing women by their genitals and allegations that he inappropriately touched women — in two instances at Mar-a-Lago — the Susan G. Komen Foundation is leaning toward finding a new location for its Perfect Pink Party on Jan. 14, a million-dollar breast cancer fundraiser it booked a year ago.

The charity has no position on Trump, the GOP presidential nominee, but wants to keep its event separate from "controversies unrelated to our mission," said Andrea Rader, a spokeswoman for the organization. The group won't make a final decision about whether to abandon its deposit until after October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

But, Rader said, "those are things that have to be discussed."

Event planners who spoke with the AP forecast trouble ahead for the high-end party space.

"There's a cloud over Mar-a-Lago," said Lynne Goldberg of Boca Entertainment, Inc., a party planner who has overseen numerous weddings and fundraisers at the venue, including a 2014 gala for the March of Dimes. She stressed her opinion had nothing to do with politics.

"The sad part is that the venue is so beautiful — it's considered the ultimate to hold an event in. What we want to do as event planners is to make everyone happy. The last thing you want is for someone to say, oh my God, how could she hold an event there?" she said.

Margaret Holman, who runs the fundraising consulting firm Holman Consulting, said charities would have to focus on the fact that they had already signed contracts with Mar-a-Lago and put down deposits. But behind the scenes, she said: "People are going to take this to the full board and let them air their full concerns. Charities who have already engaged are between a rock and a hard place."

Those large, nonrefundable deposits may minimize any rush for the exits this year.

The Palm Beach Habilitation Center, which serves the disabled community, said it won't break its contract for a Feb. 20 fundraiser at Mar-a-Lago — but president Tina Philips said the party's organizers would be mindful of Trump's controversies going forward.

"I can assure you that will be a big consideration when we discuss it next year," Philips said.

David Cay Johnston: 'There’s very good reason to believe Trump’s been engaged in tax fraud'

Video here: http://www.businessinsider.com/david-cay-johnston-donald-trump-tax-returns-election-president-2016-10

David Cay Johnston, former New York Times reporter, Pulitzer Prize winner and author of "The Making of Donald Trump," has investigated Trump for nearly three decades. He discusses why we will likely never see Donald Trump's tax returns even if he's elected president.

When asked for comment, Donald Trump's campaign responded with the following: "Mr. Trump is under audit. David Cay Johnston knows nothing about Mr. Trump or his company."

To all trolls out there: Trump is lying to y'all BIG LEAGUE! Your racism and sexism BLINDS YOU!

You are not thinking right or thinking things through. You are not listening to Trump carefully.

Something is not right with Trump. Guy gets unhinged daily. ~The rest of us gets that, but you don't!? Why is that!?

You are letting the worst parts of you do your thinking for you. You ought to try to be bigger than your racism & sexism.

Your racism & sexism is the past. We are all trying to be better and do better. There is still time.

Get over your self-made-up anger. Anger is a low level emotion. There are a whole lot of other emotions up the scale.

Try them. They might help you clear your head, mind, heart, soul.

No one is trying to be your enemy. That way of thinking is small, very small. Widen your mind and you widen your world.
