Early voting sets record in IL

Early voting sign Miami

Regardless, the huge surge in early voting by younger voters is likely to benefit Democratic candidates and may encourage more to the polls as election day, November 6, nears closer.

If you applied for an absentee ballot, make sure to mail it in time to be received by the early voting clerk by 7 p.m. on Election Day for it to be counted.

"Maybe 40-45 percent", she said Friday. After the lawsuit was filed by five Prairie View A&M University students, Waller County elections officials added a day of early voting in Prairie View, which is predominantly black, for the first week and expanded hours during the second week.

Fawkes reminds everyone of what Charles B. Rangel said: "The Voting Rights Act of 1965 was indeed a vital instrument of democracy, ensuring the integrity and reliability of a democratic process that we as a country hold so dear". "I love seeing the parking lot fill up, it's wonderful".

More than 16 percent of voters to date have Spanish surnames, a higher share than in any previous midterm election. They also worry about low turnout among Hispanics, who represent 60 percent of Dodge City's population.




The statewide turnout four years ago was 50.5 percent, the October 30 story said.

The voter turnout for November 2016 was 72 percent, while the turnout in November 2014 was 48 percent. The total early vote in 2014 was 28.3 million in an election where more than 83 million Americans voted.

It's possible that Republicans are outpacing Democrats simply because the most competitive Senate races are taking place in states which have more registered Republicans than Democrats, like Texas, for example. Democrats saw a 52.6 percent turnout with 20,417 ballots cast.

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.

Mail absentee ballots can be returned by the voter by mail or by a commercial delivery service (e.g., Federal Express, UPS), or by the voter personally, but not by another person or a personal courier service.
