The expansion of mail in voting due to COVID helped people vote who normally didn’t.

1) Depending on where you live, polling stations may be hard to get to or have long waits
2) Voting is on a Tuesday, which is typically a work day for most people. Depending on your schedule, it can be hard to get to the polling stations (point #1 can also limit your windows)
3) Most employers don’t give their employees time off or allowances to go and vote

It’s not some big mystery. Why do more and more people shop online at Christmas instead of going to the mall? Because going to the mall is a pain in the ass.

Both of those states have multiple weeks of early voting. Mail in voting is certainly easier, but none of you other points matter because early voting eliminates them. Mail in voting is the least secure method BY FAR and if you cannot find time in the day for an entire month to vote early (and have a goddamn ID on you) then you shouldn't get to vote. Your mall analogy is great because everyone went to the mall no matter what before the internet just like everyone got off their asses and voted on Tuesday before early voting. A month of early voting is like the internet of voting.

Early voting is good. But just having voting one day of the week on a weekday is shit. That’s part of the reason old people probably always had a greater turn out: most of them are retired or aren’t dealing with kids anymore, so they have time to waste

Is there any rational, logical explanation for this recurring theme of a spike in the graphs? Is this found in any prior elections?

I'm sure someone here has scrounged up some similar graphs from 2016 etc and checked for any similar incidents. I'm guessing that this isn't a normal thing to see.

Only thing I can think of is that the district with a major city sends their vote totals over and it gives a huge lift to the democrat vote count all at once. Your Milwaukees, Detroits, Atlantas. However, if that were the cause, then the red lines would also get a bounce from the city district, just not as much. That looks like it might be the case in the Wisconsin graph, can't tell. The Michigan and Georgia graphs show zero bounce for the red lines during the sudden large dumps though.

Some scream bigotry, others ignorance... without answering the question.

Why does 83% of this country think the most popular president ever sucks?

Typically just lacking context, that kind of bump is from a cache of votes coming from one county or region with a concentrated demographic - and with a method that also skews the votes that way like absentee ballots. That's what happened in Wisconsin.

At 3:56 am? Isn't it magical when Dem areas can't count or update votes until after everyone else goes home? The movie shows obvious fraud and these vote counting areas restrict people from watching too carefully....especially after 3 am..............
