Early voting begins for November 8 election

When students hit the booths on November 8 they may come face-to-face with an electronic voting machine, but for many students on this campus, the system will be as old-fashioned as it gets through an absentee ballot: a handwritten check-mark next to their candidate, an envelope and a stamp. The county had about 77,000 people request an early ballot or vote early in the office during the last presidential election, and Kruse said he already had forecast that number to exceed 90,000 this year. Since there are fewer than 250 voters in each county precinct, every voter in the county will receive a vote-by-mail ballot at the current mailing address on file.

This year, several large counties in Florida have expanded their early voting hours in an effort to attract more voters and reduce the possibility of long lines.

"It only said 'postage here, ' and it was just in this small little area".

Booth said 6,200 absentee ballots went out on Wednesday, the first day they were legally allowed to be mailed.

"For me the primary threat that we are looking at is that the confidence in the process is being undermined", said King.

Douglas County offers 10 drop box locations where voters can deposit a finished ballot.

Montanans can check their voter registration status using the Secretary of State's online elections tool and app, "My Voter Page".

A full sample ballot is available on the DeKalb County Elections website here.

For this election, however, voters must be registered no later than October 24.

The U.S. Election Assistance Commission encourages those who experience voting-related problems to contact their state or local election office for information on how to file a complaint.

Epstein said if a security breach affecting voter registration databases were to hit Missouri on election day, there would be early indicators. Another 3,000 voted at the board of elections office during the 2012 season. What's more, the rationale for hacking into databases like voter registration systems is usually not political, but criminal, namely to get access to a large batch of personal information, he noted.

Carolee Wende got her absentee ballot in the mail this week.
