Early Voting Turnout Exceeds That of Four Years Ago

Early voter turnout strong across state

The high volume surprised the Election Commission and caused parking problems at the Princeton Arts Center, one of the county's three early voting locations. The total early vote in 2014 was 28.3 million in an election where more than 83 million Americans voted. State officials said the problem was connected to Hart eSlate voting machines, which are used in about 30 percent of counties statewide. The machines do not provide receipts, but voters see a screen that shows their choices and can make changes before submitting their ballot. Even if the voter comes to the polls without the vote-by-mail ballot, the voter will still be able to vote a regular ballot as long as the supervisor of elections' office in your county is able to confirm that it has not already received your vote-by-mail ballot.

Bencoach reports that as of this morning 54 percent of the mail absentee ballots issued by the city (836 of 1,541) had not yet been returned. Election experts have warned that aging voting equipment can result in failures and other issues.

According to findings by NBC News, Republicans are actually leading Democrats in early vote counts based on the nationwide numbers. "In Albemarle County we have had several polling place changes during the previous year". For example, actions of persons created to interrupt or intimidate voters at polling places by questioning or challenging them, or by photographing or videotaping them, under the pretext that these are actions to uncover illegal voting may violate federal voting rights law. It's important to remember: you legally do not need any form of identification to cast your vote in IL, unless you are registering for the first time or changing your registration. County Clerk Donna Zimmerman says the polling places were consolidated to save money. She shares another consistent complaint is how some amendments voter multiple topics without a clear focus that could more easily help voters make their decisions. Do your research and mark your sample ballot before coming in to vote. Under the judge's order, voters would have nearly a week to verify their identity and have their ballot counted. Republican businessman Kevin Stitt faces Democrat and former state attorney general Drew Edmondson. "Under state law, ballots received after the 7 p.m. Election Day deadline can not be counted". They will be accepting mail ballots during the locations' regular business hours until November 5 and then from 7 a.m.to 8 p.m. Election Day.

Khashoggi murder: Turkey gives official details of Saudi writer's death

Check on the Texas Secretary of State's website. They must bring a valid photo ID that substantially matches the information on file. Voters needing to vote absentee in person must go to the office for the locality in which they are registered to vote.

If you missed the deadline this year, you can register to be ready for the next election. Postmark dates don't count.
