DECISION 2018: Early Voting Shows Republicans Out Voting Democrats

Early voter turnout strong across state

In person absentee voting has been brisk, with 1,064 city voters and 1,926 county voters casting ballots in their voter registrar's offices, so far.

The Voter Service and Polling Centers across the state will be open through Election Day, except for Sunday, Nov. 4.

"Strong turnout, combined with population growth and increased voter registration, has resulted in significantly more votes being cast than in prior midterm elections", said Richardson's office in a statement.

- In Missouri's St. Louis County, 253 people who recently registered to vote were mistakenly sent letters telling them they were ineligible. And 462 voters registered to "other" parties had also cast ballots as of Thursday evening. "I encourage all eligible voters to return your ballot to an official drop box soon". The new statewide vote-by-mail law passed in August allows mail-in ballots to be received and counted by the elections board up to 48 hours after polls close on election night, provided that these ballots are postmarked on Election Day, November 6.

The Illinois State Board of Elections says almost 840,000 early votes had been cast statewide as of late Wednesday.

Gig the Vote is also hosting Party to the Polls event from 7 a.m.to 7 p.m. on November 6 in Rudder Plaza featuring free food and games as they encourage people to vote.

Republicans accounted for 34 percent. About half of those new voters were newly registered. Along with all the traditional absentee voters, well over 1.7 million people had voted as of Friday.

Ashe is the leader of the Deadlock Gang and has a longstanding grudge against McCree, one of the original " Overwatch " heroes. She also has a " Coach Gun ", which lets her essentially rocket jump or merely propel enemies backward a few feet.

More than 16 percent of voters to date have Spanish surnames, a higher share than in any previous midterm election. If that held through Election Day, it would be a huge number.

While a government-issued photo ID is not required to vote under IL law, it can be helpful to bring one should any questions about registration, address, signature, or more arise during the voting process.

The spike in turnout appears to be driven in part by Hispanics, according to an analysis, de Leon said. "We'll need more parking and more people working".
