With Zeta downgraded to a post-tropical cyclone but still racing up the East Coast with powerful winds and rain, the weather could impact early voting in several states.

There were more than 2.6 million people without power in the storm’s wake from Louisiana through Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and the Carolinas as of Thursday afternoon, and it still was churning toward southeastern Virginia. At least six people have died in storm-related incidents.

  • Replies: 0
A Virginia judge ruled partially in favor of a Republican-led lawsuit that sought to block mail-in ballots arriving after Election Day with missing or unreadable postmarks.

The ruling came in a dispute over whether ballots received up to three days after Election Day still count if the postmarks on them were not clearly identifiable as on or before Nov. 3. The Public Interest Legal Foundation, which filed the lawsuit on behalf Frederick County Board of Elections member Tom Reed, argued that the new rule was in violation of a recent election law. Bob...

  • News source: Bradford Betz
  • Replies: 0
Early voting in Texas has stirred hope among Democrats of gaining ground in the state that has been in the firm grip of Republicans for decades.

Data released Wednesday from the Cook Political Report, showed that Texas has shifted from “Leans Republican” to “Toss Up,” – figures that align with takeaways from the 2018 Senate race, in which Republican Sen. Ted Cruz narrowly defeated Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke at 51% to 48%.

The Texas Tribune reported Thursday that nearly 8.6 million Texans – more than have of the state’s registered voters – have...

(CNN)As President Donald Trump makes a hurried final push for reelection, he is relying not only on his campaign staff but on government officials to transmit his message to voters, a breach of longstanding norms that have mostly been erased over his four-year tenure.

This week alone, his White House press secretary has appeared on television from campaign headquarters, identified as a campaign adviser. His top White House immigration adviser convened a campaign-organized briefing to assail Joe Biden. And the head of the White House National...

(CNN)The 8th US Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that mailed-in ballots in Minnesota must be received by elections officials no later than Election Day.

The 2-1 ruling -- a win for the Republican challengers to the state's plans -- cuts off a weeklong window after Election Day where state officials had planned to receive ballots that had lingered in the mail. The court found the Minnesota secretary of state's accommodation went against a state law that said ballots delivered by mail to elections officials after 8 p.m. on Election Day should be...

  • News source: Brittany De Lea
  • Replies: 0
Pennsylvania, a key swing state, is dealing with a number of challenges during an unprecedented election – including postmarking mail-in ballots, which could be critical as a means to prove votes were cast on time.

In Pennsylvania, postage is prepaid on ballot envelopes to be returned by mail. Typically these prepaid envelopes are not automatically postmarked.

In a statement to Fox News, a spokesperson for the Postal Service said that the agency will “try to ensure” that every ballot mailed by voters receives a postmark, whether it is prepaid or...
