Cuyahoga County printed extra ballots as voter turnout swelled

"A portion of the increase in Vote by Mail ballots can be attributed to the new election law signed by Gov. Murphy and implemented earlier in the fall which mandates that a vote by mail ballot be issued to all those that were issued them in the November 2016 general election", Colabella said.

Ramsey County elections manager Joe Mansky says turnout also is good in his metro county.

"This is the first time this is being done in the city of NY for a general election, it is the first time for us and it's the first time for the voters", says Ryan.

Many voters anxious that problems will mean their vote will not be counted in time, but the Election Day coordinator stressed that they will.

If you're at the correct place, ask the poll worker to check the supplemental roster if they can't find your name. Four years ago, in the 2014 Midterm Election, 12,540 Vote by Mail ballots were issued, Colabella said.

Election Day has arrived in Colorado.

While there is no law that strictly prohibits taking photos or videos in the polling place to record your own voting experience, any photo taken may not include another voter or be shown to other voters at the poll.

"For the next few hour we're looking at cloudy skies", he said just after the polls opened at 7 a.m. Voters who cannot enter their polling place because of a disability or age (65 and older) can take advantage of curbside voting available at all polling places. The deadline to request an absentee ballot is 5 p.m. on October 30. But you will need to provide ID later for your vote to be counted. The DeKalb County Legislative Center in Sycamore saw the largest turnout with 4,972 voters. All polling places will be open today from 7 a.m.to 7 p.m. Your polling location depends on where you live.

The Monroe County Board of Elections reported that as of 10 a.m. voter turnout was up countywide. But that might be less of a concern in a state such as IL, which has same-day voter registration, according to Snopes. The country has been moving toward a more robust use of early voting for years. Ballots can also be printed from myvote.wa.gov then turned in or mailed.

At a poll site in Atlanta, voters waited in the rain in long lines that stretched around the building.

"I think it's really exciting to see people participate in this civic process, to be a part of our essential part of democracy and make their voices heard". Since the location can change from election to election, it's best to check ahead of time.
