Today is also the last day that voters can register to have a ballot sent to them by mail.
Officials are expecting a record number of requests for absentee ballots for the 2020 election and time is quickly running out for voters to request ballots. That is higher than the 57 million who voted early or by mail in the 2016 polls, according to the US Election Assistance Commission website.
The deadline to request mail-in ballots is the end of the day Tuesday. Even if counties begin reporting mail-in ballot results as the polls close November 3, public-opinion surveys have shown a partisan divide between voting by mail and voting in person on Election Day.
Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 3. Over the weekend, the president voted early in-person in Florida.
Ballots can be mailed back, but both commissioners said the post office warned it could take up to 10 days to be returned. Merrill said he is unsure if all of those votes are included in the 206,552 count because some ballots may be waiting to be processed. - President Donald Trump may be encouraging people to change their votes in states where it is allowed, but Florida voters don't have such a luxury.
The tally by the independent US Elections Project, run by the University of Florida, said that more than 59 million people had voted as of Sunday. The county has also received an additional 100,000 ballots by mail.
"While we are accustomed to seeing results on election night, in actuality election officials count every properly cast ballot, and then official results are certified, which can take days or even weeks in order in ensure the results truly reflect the will of the people", Way said.
There are approximately 19,000 registered voters in Gallia County.
Unaffiliated voters - who tend to be younger than the typical voter, according to the Carolina Demography project at UNC-Chapel Hill - have increased their absentee voting the most this year.
As such, Elections BC said it will publish an updated figure for voter turnout once more accurate figures are available.
Unlike the Pennsylvania order last week, the Wisconsin order Monday concerned a ruling from a lower federal court, not a state court, and Chief Justice John Roberts said that made a difference.
"Different bodies of law and different precedents govern these two situations and require, in these particular circumstances, that we allow the modification of election rules in Pennsylvania but not Wisconsin", Roberts wrote.
