Voter registration office prepares for busy time ahead of elections


Voters will cast ballots in the presidential election Nov. 8

Early voting got underway in North Carolina on Thursday and people lined up early to cast their ballots in Raleigh and Durham.

If this pattern continues, Whitmire said the commission anticipates a record turnout for the presidential election. The highly respected Pew Research Center has issued a poll that shows that 80 percent of the respondents say they have thought “quite a lot” about the election and that 85 percent report that they are following the candidates very or fairly closely.

No photo ID is needed for voting early or on Election Day.

Those who vote at the polls on November 8 will also have to provide a form of government-issued ID.

Early voting has already started in some Kansas counties, though Johnson and Wyandotte counties won’t begin early voting until next week.

Those not registered to vote can visit any early voting site and, with the proper documents, register and vote all in one trip. The recent state legislative primaries, held September 13, saw very low voter turnout, though it was fairly typical for NY in such party primaries. The ballot may be returned by the voter in person, through the mail, or by registered carrier or a registered voter’s relative within two degrees of blood relation.

“So I wonder which ballot do I vote with”. But, in the rest of the country, the restoration of voting rights varies depending on the state and the laws are stricter in some states than others. After that, they’ll be opening all 25 of their early voting locations.

Simon, a former lawmaker who played a key role in passing the 2013 law, said it made sense to handle the surge of new early voters the same way the state always has. The county Board of Elections appoints a chief judge for each polling place. “I’m really sad to hear that in America that people don’t have honesty and integrity”.

Voters have five options for USA senator: Republican James Lankford, Libertarian Robert Murphy, Democrat Mike Workman, independent Mark Beard and independent Sean Braddy. Governor Pat McCrory requested a stay in the law, but the U.S. Supreme Court deadlocked in a 4 to 4 vote. Registered voters can vote-by-mail, vote during early voting, or vote at the polls on Election Day.

Thirty-seven states allow voting with little restriction before Election Day, either in person or via mail.

Georgia is not the only state where voters are facing long waiting lines and a lack of efficiency at polling places.

The polls are now open in North Carolina.

By stating one of the following reasons on their applications, absentee voters can activate special conditions that make it easier for them to use absentee ballots.

Curious about what the ballot will look like?

Absentee ballots by mail are also going out the door, with 1,328 issued as of Monday. I believe Hillary and like are after our gun rights and if we elect her we’ll get more of what we’ve seen the last eight years and the system will get stronger.
