Before age 12, Karlie Stewart had already faced some of life’s toughest challenges. And by her 14th birthday, she wasn’t sure she would make it to the next one.

She grew up between Nowra and Sydney in a big, proud Aboriginal family, with ties to the Yuin nation and the La Perouse community.

“We never, ever saw the police and thought, ‘they’re our friends’, or, ‘we could trust them’.”

By the time Karlie was in high school, she felt like she shouldn’t expect much from her life.

“I thought I would be dead...

For months, Papua New Guinea has avoided a large-scale coronavirus outbreak, but in the space of two weeks things have changed.

Until mid-July, only 11 cases had been recorded in the country. Then on July 16, a new case was discovered.

It was a lab technician — who had reported a fever, muscle aches, a cough and runny nose. They’d been working at a COVID-19 testing lab.

It’s not the first time he’s attacked mail voting. He told Fox News recently that it would “rig the election” and that he might not accept the result of the election because of it.

But with record daily cases and a second wave apparently yet to reach its peak, the reality is setting in that COVID-19 won’t go away before November. Experts say without mail voting, Americans will be putting their lives at risk to cast a ballot.

So is there any truth to the claims that mail voting will “rig the election”? And is America ready to vote in the middle of a pandemic?
