Early Votes Could Ease Election Day Delays

Early voter turnout strong across state

Lewis County Clerk Glenda Himes said 15 voters came in her office by mid-afternoon on Friday to cast absentee ballots.

The high number of contests in the November 6 election means San Diego County voters will be getting a two-card ballot, with races listed on the front and back of each card.

"Voting absentee is a convenient way for New Mexicans to vote and it's great to see that nearly 50,000 voters have already returned their absentee ballots for this election", said Sec.

For voters who are registered to vote in another county but can not make it back home to vote, an option to vote only in statewide elections is available at the Brazos County Elections Administration Office. This is the highest number facing Florida voters since 1998 with 13 constitutional revisions on the ballot then.

In 2016, 480,936 Tarrant County voters cast ballots in person for the presidential election.

Polls across the commonwealth open at 6 a.m. on Election Day and will remain open until 6 p.m.

In states that require party registration, Democrats have cast 41 percent of the early ballots, compared to 36 percent for Republicans. There are several early voting sites across Chicago, suburban Cook County and the area's suburban counties.

While the general voter participation of young folks skyrocketed in Texas, Hispanic and African-American votes have doubled in the state - a demographic that also largely votes Democratic. About half of those new voters were newly registered.

State elections officials say Saturday afternoon's vote count will be updated as more counties report totals.

Tarrant County voters shattered local records this year, casting ballots at a faster rate than in any elections except the 2016 presidential race. If that held through Election Day, it would be a huge number.

The major elephant in the room here is why Democrats aren't outpacing Republicans when most polls show they have an advantage in enthusiasm over the GOP?

The spike in turnout appears to be driven in part by Hispanics, according to an analysis, de Leon said. There's lots of news we want to cover for you but we need a bigger staff and better equipment. maybe even a desk for our YouTube Shows!
