"I strongly believe that everyone should come in and vote, no matter how they're going to vote". "Voting anywhere in PA matters". The Washington Post, The Guardian, and Vox among others readily confirm that the potential for fraud and abuse of vote-by-mail systems are very small and not the issue that the Trump administration makes it out to be. The only exceptions are for active duty or bedridden military personnel. When going to vote, do not forget to wear a mask and don't go the last few days to avoid long lines. We saw something similar to this issue during the Bush v. Gore election of 2000 when a Florida Supreme Court request was sent for a recount of ballots but the Supreme Court overturned the decision. However, there are requirements regarding how long students have resided in Pennsylvania that might restrict them from registering in the state. In most US states (including Ohio) citizens must register to vote in the election. Individuals are encouraged to mail absentee ballots, if applicable, by October 20. Initially announced in June, Facebook is conducting the largest voting information campaign in American history.
Each party's national committee has the power to replace its candidate on the ballot. Some Pennsylvania counties have proven faster at printing up their ballots than others, and election offices may not have the ballots on hand right now. Also, three Vote Center locations opened today where voters can register to vote, vote early in person, return a voted ballot or request a replacement ballot.
In Colorado, where there is a statewide mask mandate in place, the secretary of state has issued step-by-step recommendations on what to do, including training poll workers to use de-escalation techniques, such as maintaining a calm voice and demeanor in the event of conflict.
Roughly 30% of those ballots requested have been returned so far in the Tar Heel State, and Democrats continue to outpace Republicans in casting their votes early.
The easiest way to cure a ballot, of course, is an ounce of prevention: read voting instructions carefully and double-check that the proper signatures are in place. North Carolina's Democratic attorney general in court papers included a Trump campaign email to some local board of election members as an example of how he said the party was improperly undermining an official state directive.
The strategy was on display last week when Trump tweeted about nine "discarded" ballots in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania. That's simply not true, and spreading the rumor could actually do more to disenfranchise Republican voters, who in previous elections have always been more likely to vote by mail. Lehigh County's "on-demand" ballots will become available Friday, Oct. 2, Chief of Elections Timothy Benyo said. Those in line prior to 8:00pm in Pennsylvania can not be turned away.
To ensure that students keep up to date with this information, Lafayette Votes! is serving not just as a megaphone for voter mobilization, but as a central resource for all things voting related.
There has been recent doubt casted upon the safety of voting by mail. The positive test reading for the leader of the world's largest economy added more uncertainty to investors' worries, including how the infection might affect the November 3 election.
Trump suggested it two months ago in response to unfounded claims of mail-in voting fraud, saying the election should be delayed "until people can properly, securely and safely vote", The New York Times reported. The circumstances require us to add planning and patience to our list of civic virtues.
