Huge Lead Emerges in Mail Voting

Четверг, 01 Окт, 2020

The New York City Board of Elections is printing and resending almost 100,000 absentee ballots to voters who received erroneous envelopes in their ballot packages.

"Chris had a tough night", Trump posted on Wednesday morning on Twitter, calling the debate a "two on one" fight.

In fact, a ruling from a federal judge - upheld by an appeals panel - actually does the opposite.

Allowing as many as 21 days to process mail-in ballots before Election Day has been the counties' top election priority for months.

Let's clarify what it got wrong.

If dropping off at the Elections Office, the hours are 8:30AM-5PM Monday to Friday, and up until 7PM on Election Day. (Read on for more information about satellite voting locations and hours.) What are the voting hours on Election Day?

In an article on the website Rural Insights, City Clerk Kyle Whitney says his office is processing more than 5,600 absentee ballot applications.

The Legislature could head that off by allowing ballots to be processed before Election Day, she said.

"This is a president who has expressed his opposition to access to mail ballots and has also seemed to nearly foreshadow the inevitability that this election will be one decided by the courts", said Kristen Clarke, executive director of the National Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law.

At the same time, however, Trump also insisted that he pays millions in taxes, contradicting the New York Times' reporting, which indicated that he paid $750 in income taxes in 2016 and 2017.

Portland voters who requested an absentee ballot by mail will likely see their ballots arrive next week as well, the clerk's office said.

With Trump threatening to contest elections in battleground states where it will take weeks to count all the absentee ballots, claiming - with no substantiation - that massive fraud is going on with mail-in votes, OH is in a position to possibly avoid the madness.

Secretary of State Corey Stapleton asked the Montana Supreme Court on Monday to block Harris' order.

President Donald Trump during Tuesday's debate criticized a mail-in voting rule used in some states - "all run by Democrats" - that also has been in place in Republican-led OH for years.

Republicans countered that it was about reducing the likelihood of voter fraud and making sure that people who moved are not able to vote from their previous addresses. There's also concerns that older voters, who are an usually reliable voting bloc, may stay home on Election Day because of the pandemic. No judge made this ruling.

A federal appeals court on Sunday temporarily halted a six-day extension for counting absentee ballots in Wisconsin's presidential election, a momentary victory for Republicans and President Donald Trump in the key presidential battleground state.

"Never forget they are coming after me because I am fighting for you", Trump told thousands of cheering supporters at a rally outside an airport hangar in Duluth, Minnesota.
