Answer:  ELECT NOT TO

(A great, and appropriate, pun!  None of the clue words were new, but three of the jumbles appear to be.  It seems they’ve used “coalf” before.  The answer letter layout was another fine jumble.  I’m sure it took me half a minute to see the answer.  Cool cartoon.  I wish I had the full sized one, like I get at home.  I know I’m missing some great detail from the people who are waiting on line to vote.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Focal cost me some time. Not that I’m counting! Good puzzler, wish I could say I got the answer right away! NOT!

    I voted a day early. I found age does have some perks!!! Was in line a little over an hour. Not bad at all. And it was a gorgeous day. LL

    Excellent topical pun! FOCAL took me a while too. I had to come back to it after solving the other words. WANTED wasn’t instant, either. On the bright side, ODDEST, which used to be in my “toughest words” list, came to me instantly this time. The final answer took 10 seconds or so to figure out. I was trying to get the second and third words first, and it took a while to realize that the last word was TO. The answer followed easily after that.
