Photos from Tampa’s ‘Souls to the Polls’ event


Donald Trump is ready to call the election for himself on Tuesday night and fully prepared to litigate the legitimacy of mail-in ballots all the way to the nation’s highest court. ( “If we win on Tuesday or — thank you very much, Supreme Court — shortly thereafter…” he said in Pennsylvania last weekend.) And over the weekend, in response, to a Florida crowd chanting “Fire Fauci,” lyin' Donald, said, “Don’t tell anybody, but let me wait until after the election.”

The grandstanding is cute and fun for 45’s followers, but another four years of Trump have dire consequences for millions of Americans. That’s why Tampeños used the last day of early voting to drive more voters—specifically Black voters whose support will decide the election in Florida—to polls ahead of Election Day. Here’s Creative Loafing Tampa Bay’s voting guide if you still haven’t voted. —Ray Roa
