“You guys were one of the outlets who got singled out to balance the ledger”: That’s what a former Facebook employee told Monika Bauerlein and me as we dug into recent news that the platform was throttling traffic to certain publishers, including Mother Jones. It’s enraging for several reasons, and since it happened during our fall fundraising drive and affects our bottom line, we hope the Mother Jones community will stand up for our fearless journalism and send a message with a donation to support it today.

NASA astronaut Kate Rubins didn’t let a pesky thing like space travel stop her from casting a ballot in this year’s hotly contested election. Instead, she cast her ballot from space.

The agency apparently has a “vote as you float” policy for its astronauts, which enabled Rubin to vote while on her mission. In this case, Rubins went into a makeshift voting booth in the International Space Station and submitted a specialized electronic ballot.

The process itself is fairly complex. Astronauts have to signal before they leave Earth for their missions if they intend to vote or not, and then the county clerk from their home district sends a test to NASA’s Johnson Space Center to make sure the process is working. After that, a secure ballot is sent to the astronaut via email. 

Millions of Americans have voted early, and many more are braving the pandemic to vote in person. Election day is November 3.

Reclaiming power from those who abuse it often starts with telling the truth. And in “This Is How Authoritarians Get Defeated,” MoJo’s Monika Bauerlein unpacks six truths to remember during the homestretch of an election where democracy, truth, and decency are on the line.

Please take a moment to see how all these truths add up, because what happens in the weeks and months ahead will reverberate for at least a generation and we better be prepared.

And if you think journalism like Mother Jones’—that calls it like it is, that will never acquiesce to power, that looks where others don’t—can help guide us through this historic, high-stakes moment, and you’re able to right now, please help us reach our $350,000 goal by October 31 with a donation today. It’s all hands on deck for democracy.
