Election Day and the county courthouse: Try to address ballot concerns now

Southwest Colorado election officials give vote of confidence in election security

She is confident the U.S. Postal Service will deliver ballots to the clerk's office effectively, though the recommended deadline for mailing ballots was Monday.

Hundreds of voters have not received their mail ballots with less than a week before Election Day, the commissioners of Butler County, Pa., said and will address the issue Thursday afternoon.

"I urge everyone to not only vote for Joe Biden for President but to continue down the ballot on the Democratic line and create not a blue wave but a blue tsunami that will reverberate across the nation", he urged. The voter must then request and be accepted to use the ballot through his or her state government.

As of Wednesday evening, about 36 per cent of registered voters have already cast ballots, according to a survey of election officials in all 50 states and Washington, DC, by CNN, Edison Research and Catalist. This means that in states where a candidate wins on a close margin, the results could be manipulated in the time after the election and before the mail-in deadline.

On a national scale only 69.8 per cent of mail was on time on 27 October.

As in some recent elections, more minority than white voters are facing ballot rejections. Voters in most states have to register ahead of time, so their residence and information can be confirmed.

Moreover, the absentee ballot can not be given to anyone; there has to be an excuse.

This election, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, millions of Americans have voted through an absentee ballot and mailed it in.

At first glance, the number of Florida and Georgia ballots flagged for rejection appears modest.

In 17 postal districts representing 10 battleground states and 151 electoral votes, the average on-time delivery rate for first-class mail was 64.2 per cent on Tuesday.

As it becomes blindingly obvious that Donald Trump is going to fight to throw out any ballot counted after midnight November 3, it is ever more urgent that journalists be prepared to explain to the public why there's no practical, legal or moral rationale for his demand.

Georgia Deputy Secretary of State Jordan Fuchs was cited as lashing out at Donald Trump's public attacks on voting by mail as possibly deterring some voters.

In a message to Caribbean voters on Friday, Williams had urged the community to "make a plan for how you're voting".

Third, Trump himself at debates and rallies has called for Republican citizens to appoint themselves as "election monitors" in an attempt to illegally intimidate voters who do turn out at the polls. And conservative justices on the U.S. Supreme Court signaled this week that any ballots counted after Election Day could lead to "charges of a rigged election". But this paranoia may be less widespread if state election officials (especially Republican ones) make statements NOW, before any votes have been counted, vouching for the integrity of the vote-counting process.

Historically, less than 1% of absentee votes get rejected because of administrative errors.

Pennsylvania is one of many USA states that are leaning more heavily on mail voting and early voting amid the coronavirus pandemic. For background, absentee ballots are submitted by mail from an absentee.

"If you're going to vote by mail, sign it and send it in", Soffrant Forrest, whose husband is Jamaican Charles Forrest, told Caribbean Life.

Sorting and postmarking of ballots is to be done at local post offices instead of sending them to regional processing plants, the memo reportedly says.
