Record early in-person voting for N Carolina midterm ending

  • Early voter turnout strong across state

A similar turnout this year would result in about 6.65 million voters going to the polls, although some suggest the turnout will be higher.

With one of the most crucial midterm elections in recent U.S. history less than a week away, early voter turnout appears to have almost doubled from 2014, shattering records along the way.

"Voters who have moved and re-registered may not know where they vote", said Washburne.

According to NBC, the current turnout is looking more like a 2014 electorate than it is a 2016 electorate.

"It is fantastic that over 881,715 Oregonians have already turned in their ballots", said Secretary of State Dennis Richardson in a press release.

Importantly, the deadline to return mail-in ballots to the county Board of Elections for counting has changed.

In 2012, 47 percent of the voters statewide cast their ballots on Election Day.

The search for missing persons is ongoing and air force helicopters have been deployed to comb the area and search for survivors. Rescue workers using flashlights were searching the cliffs near the shore of the Dead Sea where bodies had been found.

The trend also is raising concerns about whether voters can be assured their ballots will count or be notified in time if there is a problem.

Anticipating the longest lines when polls open on Election Day, Edwards said she plans to deploy more voting booths and resort to "very low tech" solution like clipboards if necessary.

- Some 10,000 voters received mailers from the Missouri Republican Party with incorrect information about when their absentee ballots are due.

Early voting in Oklahoma runs Thursday through Saturday. About half of those new voters were newly registered.

An analysis by Georgia-based data analyst Ryan Anderson finds that 36 percent of the 1.8 million early votes in Georgia are new voters. Groups including the Tennessee Black Voter Project had submitted more than 36,000 registrations to the commission, but officials said about 55 percent were invalid because they were incomplete, were duplicates from previously registered voters or had come from convicted felons.

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? "We'll need more parking and more people working".
