Southwest Colorado election officials give vote of confidence in election security

Mail-in ballots feature small circles, akin to standardized testing. "As Gov. Northam advised, voters may consider utilizing a drop-box at this point so close to the election to ensure the ballot is received on time and counted".

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

Election Day is November 3, but for those voting by mail, what deadlines should be paid attention to, and how do you make sure your vote is filled out correctly? MI voters, for example, can request a mail-in ballot until October 30.

The US President has often claimed that the procedure was ripe for fraud and suggested mail ballots may be "manipulated".

In Dauphin County, voters can drop off mail-in ballots at the county elections office inside the lobby of the Dauphin County Administration Building at 2 South Second Street in Harrisburg between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. on weekdays.

Absentee ballots can not be turned in at ONEOK Field.

In recent days, the percentage of ballots requested by voters that arrived within five days hovered between just over 1% and 36%.

A judge has ruled that Virginia elections officials cannot count absentee ballots with missing postmarks unless they can confirm the date of mailing through a barcode. Both are submitted by mail.

Central Pennsylvania is among the worst areas of the country for the timely delivery of mail-in ballots, according to U.S. Postal Service data filed Thursday in federal court.

When choosing a mail-in ballot, voters can apply online or through the mail. After receiving the ballot, it must be filled out completely, sealed in the secrecy envelope, sealed again and signed in the pre-addressed return envelope and either taken or mailed to your county board of elections office.

"It was kind of like filling out the SAT", Duquesne senior Emma McDonnell said. "I would be open to whatever the city proposes to just redesign from the ground up the New York City Board of Elections, period".

"Before you head to the polls, make sure to check your voter registration", urged Williams in his email message.

However, the issue is that deadlines are different than in person. The following day, Trump told reporters, "It would be very, very proper and very nice if a victor were declared on November 3, instead of counting ballots for two weeks, which is totally inappropriate, and I don't believe that's by our laws". More than 6,400 mail-in ballots were rejected in Michigan's August primary because they arrived too late to be counted, according to the state.

"This is our opportunity to vote for a government that reflects and represents the needs of our communities", he said. "I was shocked about that because I didn't know how they got my number". And even in states where Republicans are making it harder to vote, early voting is at historic levels.

Unfortunately, polls reveal a stark partisan difference between those voting by mail and those voting in person. 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.

Other than the Paterson incident, according to a study from the Heritage Foundation, over 250 million votes have been cast by mail over the years, and only 1,285 have proven cases of voter fraud.

But he said the fight isn't over after one election. "It's a little bit of uncharted territory". The person voting must be present to deliver their ballot.

"I'm sure I'll get to vote for Joe (Biden) and Kamala (Harris) in NY, so that's pretty exciting", Clinton said.
