YOU BEWDY QLD To Trial Drive Through Voting Polls At Upcoming Election

So on this day, Election Day 2017, here is the advice I will give you, no matter how unpopular it may be: Vote if you want.

It's possible that some election results would not be finalized Tuesday night or possibly within the next few days, Walters said.

"The weather did slow people down", Elliott said, "but a lot of poll coworkers were quite busy for a municipal election, and 27.9 percent is about average". That's 27.9 percent; 2,366 Republicans voted straight party. However, they do say there's high interest county wide in this election because of the hotly contested Westchester County executive's race.

Most of the $1.7 million cost of the machines was paid for by a $12 million state program that encouraged voting jurisdictions to upgrade to electronic poll books. "But that's also politics", Vedder said of Tuesday's voting problem.

Twitter officially doubles the character limit to 280 for all users
Of course, the change means America's highest-profile Twitter user, President Trump, will have more space. But Ms Rosen said that increasing the character count shouldn't affect people's experience on Twitter .

The county is home to 9,633 registered voters, however voters become inactive if they haven't voted in several elections or updated their addresses.

Township voters were electing four supervisors from four uncontested candidates for the newly expanded board of supervisors, which is expanding to five members from the current three. To count, ballots must be returned by 7 p.m. "I think all the candidates behaved themselves".

And if you are going to make a choice, it should be the one you want to make, not the one others wish you would make. In 2012 - another presidential year - our rate was just over 68 percent, again well above the national rate of 58 percent and ranking us sixth among all the states. That, she says, is close to what's seen during primary elections.
