Early Voting Begins For Nov. 8 Election

Share

Most voters will not need to show photo identification when they arrive at the polls, either during the early voting period or on Election Day.

On Election Day, Tuesday, November 8, voters must go to their regular precinct for voting.

This after the firebombing of a Republican office in North Carolina, and comments from Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump suggesting the election is "rigged" against him.

In other words, regardless of how the vote is cast - in person, by mail, or on a provisional ballot by a registered voter - every vote is counted. "I promise you there is not a 67-county conspiracy to rig this election", he said, pointing out that Republicans control numerous positions that oversee ballots and monitor results.

Ballot must be received by local county election officials by 7 p.m. November 8 to be counted toward the election.

"That's not a true".

Justice Department officials are warning that they'll be dispatching fewer trained election observers as a result of a Supreme Court opinion that gutted a key provision of the Voting Rights Act.

Early voting is set to begin on October 24 and will end on November 4, according to the Morning News.

GDP expanded 6.7 percent year on year in the first three quarters of 2016 to reach 52.997 trillionyuan ($7.87 trillion). Full year growth for 2016 is still likely to be weaker than last year's, which was already the slowest in 25 years.

Officials will also offer curbside voting for residents who are unable to make their way inside. "I don't know a single secretary of state in the United States, Republican or Democrat, that does not do everything possible to make sure the election is open, fair and transparent".

Although it's a national election year, voting happens at a state level and we're not just electing a president this year.

On Election Day itself, poll workers keep just as close an eye on each ballot's movements.
