Minneapolis adds a ballot drop-off location amid surging voter turnout”

LAFC, the LA County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk and the California Secretary of State's office, along with Rally the Vote, More Than A Vote and Our Own today announced the official dates Banc of California Stadium will serve as an L.A. County voting center for the Presidential General Election.

Counties had already been under instructions issued October 4 by the state elections board to set deficient absentee ballots aside and take no further action while multiple lawsuits over absentee voting rules unfold.

Although only seven voting centers are open now, 175 will be open by Election Day, Flores said.

The drive-through boxes will be open 24 hours a day every day until 7 p.m. on Election Day, Nov. 3, as well. A runoff is likely in one of two U.S. Senate races and possible in the other.

More than 1.15 million people voted absentee in the primary, totaling almost half the ballots cast.

"The more people who vote in person, the longer the ballot counting process will extend beyond Election Day".

MA voters on Saturday can begin casting ballots in person as the state's early voting period gets underway, adding to the hundreds of thousands of residents who have already cast ballots by mail. Under state law, voters casting the mail-in ballots must have another adult serve as a witness to their vote. Mail-in ballots already received by election officials were also processed, but not unsealed, that day, resulting in a large first-day number, which is typical. Vote centers offer voters all Election Day services 15 days prior to the election, so anything a voter can do on Election Day, Nov. 3, they can do starting October 19. "The county boards of elections and election workers worked diligently to ensure a successful first day of early voting". This news outlet has opined on this issue in the past, arguing that it could conceivably be more secure than voting at the polls - assuming appropriate safeguards are put in place. In 2016, 5 percent of votes were cast by mail. Johnny Isakson. There are 21 names on the ballot but not all fit on a single computer screen during testing.

The board previously set the one-stop voting schedule leading up to the November 3 General Election.

"The only way that I feel that I could tell somebody to be sure that their vote counts is to vote in person".

Most people should get their ballot in the next few days. The state hoped to recruit 25,000 people for this duty. North Carolina is a battleground state, meaning the presidential vote is up for grabs.

While Democrats have made voter registration and flat-out voting a major message throughout their pushes for Biden, Republicans have still so far been winning the voter registration game.

High voter turnout, regardless of political affiliation, is an important indicator for a healthy democracy, according to the Stanford Social Innovation Review. Hispanics numbered 3.3 percent of the 2020 electorate, up from 2.3 percent in 2016, while the Asian Pacific population increased to 2.4 percent in 2020 from 1.8 in 2016. To understand the state resistance, you have to know that Republicans control the state.
