Election officials: Early voting off to good start in Attleboro area

The general election in Illinois is November 6. Early voting is underway now. | AP

Voting on Election Day has become increasingly less popular with the advent of early voting and mail-in ballots.

Voting will also be held from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 28 and from 8 a.m.to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 3.

In Bexar County, The San Antonio Express News reported that as of 4 p.m. Monday more than 24,000 people had voted in person, compared to 13,436 who voted in person first day in 2014.

In addition to Seminole, polling locations in Flagler, Lake and Orange counties will remain open for early voting for about two weeks.

If you vote in person, it is possible that you could run into problems with your identification.

Haley said that during a testing period last week, election officials discovered that not all of the primary election winners' names had been transferred to the county's ballots. The administration of Gov. Rick Scott contended campus buildings could not be used for early voting, but that decision was challenged in federal court.

The third option for voters is to cast a ballot at their precinct on Election Day, Tuesday, November 6.

We don't know yet if the local enthusiasm for early voting means a consistent increase in overall turnout, or just a shift in voting away from Election Day, as has been a growing pattern in local elections. In Collin County, more than 30,000 people voted.

But among likely voters-instead of the larger group of registered voters-Trump's job rating drops to 45% approve, 52% disapprove. The results are quietly making their way to Republican leaders, and the club agreed to give me an advance look.

A larger percentage of IL residents vote early in presidential elections, likely because those races historically generate more interest.

Mansfield has had a solid turnout with 195 ballots cast, tying Attleboro for the most in the area. A total of 136,982 people have either voted in person or mailed in ballots in Dallas County.

"Law enforcement will be working the streets to make sure that voting in our county is fair and that everyone's voice is heard".

Butch Penney, a homebuilder from Roland who also voted in downtown Little Rock, said he voted for Hill "because I don't need any more Democrats".

"I have blue nails, too", she said, "but I thought that was too much". Candidates benefit from early voting because they can stop targeting those voters in the campaigns' turnout efforts. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.
