Early voting kicks off Saturday throughout county

New York City is seeking an election observer corps to monitor in-person voting on Nov. 3

Hours for early voting vary by county.

Long lines formed before polls opened across New York City and Long Island, videos on social media showed, as New Yorkers joined a flood of more than 56 million Americans across the country who have cast early ballots at a record-setting pace.

Director of Elections and Registrations for Effingham County, Olivia Morgan says there are about 47,000 registered voters in the county.

Another 650 vote centers will open October 30 throughout the county, and will also remain open through election day.

Bombing in Kabul kills ten, including children
The ISIL (ISIS) armed group has launched several attacks in Afghanistan on the Shia community, whom it views as apostates. Officials are blaming the Taliban for the attack, which killed at least nine civilians, including three women. .

Voters who have already requested a ballot should vote the ballot they receive in the mail.

Saturday was the first time that voters in NY, a reliably Democratic state where Democrat Joe Biden has a wide lead in polls over Republican President Donald Trump, have been allowed to vote early in a presidential election. "The best time to vote in person is on a weekday between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m". A short time later, a tally will be released of all in-person ballots cast at vote centers ahead of November 3. Voters simply complete the ballot, sign the oath on the postage-paid return envelope that accompanies the ballot, seal the envelope and submit it by mail or at an approved ballot drop box location.

However, the shift to regional voting centers instead of local precincts means it will be more hard for the public and media outlets to track what percentage of votes have been counted on election night and how many remain to be tallied. But the new vote center system means it won't be known how many additional ballots are yet to be counted at any point on election night. Voters can find the location of their nearest drop box online.

You can look up the closest voting center to you on the county's website. This ballot will be held until election officials confirm the voter did not also return a mail-in ballot.
