Clinton says voters have told her they didn’t take the 2016 election as seriously as they should have, but want to make it right this time, according to the excerpt shared on Twitter by NY1 reporter Emily Ngo.

Clinton is set to speak Wednesday evening alongside failed Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
“For four years, people have said to me, ‘I didn’t realize how dangerous he was.’ Or worst, ‘I should have voted.’” Clinton is encouraging voters to get ahead of the game, telling voters who plan on using a mail-in ballot to request one sooner than later.
NEW: From @HillaryClinton’s prepared remarks tonight:
“For four years, people have said to me, “I didn’t realize how dangerous he was.” “I wish I could go back and do it over.” Or worst, “I should have voted.” Well, this can’t be another woulda coulda shoulda election.”

Crooked Hillary has also been an outspoken critic of the USPS debate in recent weeks. “If you vote by mail, request your ballot now, and send it back as soon as you can. If you vote in person, do it early. Bring a friend and wear a mask. Become a poll worker. Most of all, no matter what, vote.”
I fear Republican sabotage of the USPS, including slowing mail delivery, is a Trump strategy to make voting by mail more difficult this fall. Request your ballots and return them as early as you can. https://t.co/LZONq8EPKE

“Vote like our lives and livelihoods are on the line, because they are,” she says.
Last week, Clinton said she won’t rule out serving in Joe Biden’s administration if he wins the November election. Clinton said that she will fundraise for the Biden-Harris campaign while advocating for organizations she thinks could enhance voter turnout and infrastructure, The 19th, a nonprofit news outlet, reported Thursday.
Having been launched earlier this month, The 19th is a “nonprofit, nonpartisan newsroom” reporting on the intersection of gender, politics and policy. It is funded by a mix of membership, philanthropy and corporate underwriting, according to its website.
“I’m ready to help in any way I can because I think this will be a moment where every American — I don’t care what party you are, I don’t care what age, race, gender, I don’t care — every American should want to fix our country,” Clinton said, according to the outlet.
