50 more early-voting locations to open Monday around Chicago

50 more early-voting locations to open Monday around Chicago

"It was definitely empowering seeing everyone else vote", said first-time voter Gabriella Ruiz, "and just having a ballot in front of me and not only being able to cast my vote, but cast my voice".

Pinellas County has received over 104,000 in the mail with almost 5,400 early voters.

"Of course I was in sheer disbelief", the candidate said.

Advocates say that the expanded hours make participation more accessible and convenient for people with inflexible work schedules or difficulty making it to their polling place, though the actual data on whether early voting alone increases overall turnout is less conclusive. However, Cross said it is still be too early to tell what the outcome will be on Election Day.

Downtown Dallas even featured a selfie station for those wishing to tout their early voting prowess.

Rupal Bhakta, a physician from Little Rock, was among the first to early vote on Monday morning. And majority will. She said both one-stop voting sites - the elections office and the Lida Blalock Meeting Room at the Wilson County Health Department on Glendale Drive - have seen steady traffic. Eighteen will have early voting both Saturday and Sunday, while 232 communities will have it only on Saturday and two will have it exclusively on Sunday. All early-voting sites are open to any eligible voter in Miami-Dade, and they offer free parking. There is at least one early voting center in every county, and 12 counties have more than one center. Monday marked the start of early voting for Arkansas' Nov. 6 midterm election.

Searchers find nothing as hunt for missing girl continues
Police have revealed that Denise's phone was used to call officers around the time the murders and kidnapping took place. An Amber Alert was issued for Jayme, who was described as a sweet and shy girl involved in dance and cross country.

Residents can also opt to vote early by mail.

If you don't vote early, you can request vote-by-mail ballots up until 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 31 and your filled-in ballot must be delivered no later than 7pm November 6.

After the controversy received a fair amount of local media coverage, county officials insisted that Inman's omission was the result of human error.

All voters who are inside the polling station by 8 p.m. will be entitled to vote. Before the problem was discovered, 222 ballots without Inman's name had been cast. "It's actually gotten easier, since so many people are voting early".

Cooke County saw 1101, a record for the most people they've ever had in a day of early voting. Seminole County is opening up their polling stations earlier than a few other counties.

Wait times will posted on the Supervisor of Election websites. "We are hoping we get the same traffic [throughout early voting.] We have the equipment and the pool to be prepared for the number of voters we're going to see".
