Rejection of Mail-In Ballots in Some States Sparks Growing Concern


Apart from returning ballots at higher rates in the 3rd District, thousands more Democrats are simply voting early than at this point in the 2014 midterms. Voters who participated in the 2018 General Election Early Voting are: St. Thomas - 6,191; St. Croix - 5,251; and St. John - 387, for a total territory-wide of 11,829, which represents 23 percent of registered voters.

Early voting is already underway at the Registrar of Voters at 5600 Overland Ave., San Diego, 92123 on the County Operations Center campus.

Yet, the presence of 12 proposed constitutional amendments, which include topics ranging from gambling regulation to voter rights to greyhound racing, concerns county elections officials.

In Carter, 9,722 people have voted so far, more than double the 4,252 votes in 2014. Notices were mailed to each affected voter, but those who voted in past elections at the following precincts especially need to check their voting location before election day: "Belfield, Brownsville, Cale, Crozet, Free Bridge, and University Hall". "In Albemarle County we have had several polling place changes during the previous year".

The major elephant in the room here is why Democrats aren't outpacing Republicans when most polls show they have an advantage in enthusiasm over the GOP?

- Voters in Arkansas will have to show a photo ID after the Arkansas Supreme Court on October 11 upheld a state law approved previous year. In 2010, 33 percent of ballots were returned; in 2006 32 percent came in and in 2002 30 percent were. The provisional ballot will be counted as long as the county election commission doesn't invalidate it on other grounds.

If you do not have a photo ID and cannot reasonably obtain one by Election Day, you can fill out a Reasonable Impediment Declaration at the polls and provide supporting documentation. About half of those new voters were newly registered.
