More Ballots Returned This Election Than Previous Midterm Election In Colorado

Justice Department sending staff to monitor Tarrant County polling sites on Election Day

Ms. Gabriel also said people were lined up Tuesday outside the Lucas County Early Vote Center, but that center closed Monday afternoon after early voting concluded and is not a polling place anymore.

Lee said that voting is heavier than usual for a nonpresidential year for several reasons, including by-mail balloting, the tight congressional race between GOP Rep. Mia Love and Democratic Salt Lake County Ben McAdams and interest in ballot initiatives on medical marijuana, Medicaid expansion and gerrymandering. More ballots have been returned so far this midterm election than in the 2014 election.

"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. "This milestone is a testament to the hard work of thousands of election officials all across Georgia who are dedicated to secure, accessible, and fair elections for all". BMV offices are open from 6 a.m.to 6 p.m. "Reaching this number of early voters supports our opening many locations to provide our residents with an opportunity to choose when and where they want to vote".

ME voters will also answer five ballot questions, one of which proposed to increase taxes on higher-income earners to pay for home health care workers.

While Broward reported no problems at the polls to date, printers at early voting locations in North Miami and Homestead went down on Sunday.

The Department of Justice said it was sending four staffers to Arizona to monitor federal voting rights compliance at Tuesday's polls. Iowa is one of 15 states that makes same day voter registration available on Election Day.
