Groups pushing early vote in Florida


Texans who've registered to vote have the opportunity to cast ballots early for the November 8 general election.

A new era in MA elections began today with early voting offered for the first time.

Almost 48,000 voters in Orange County and more than 20,000 in Seminole had cast ballots by mail through Friday afternoon.

"They can bring a state ID, or utility bill, showing where they actually live and they'll be processed during early voting and allowed to vote", Jones said.

- In most counties, early voting is conducted at the County Clerk's Office. On the first day of early voting, I spent the day with college students who marched to the polls in order to exercise their right to vote and remind America what democracy looks like.

Early voting starts in many Florida counties Monday.

If you're planning to vote by mail, you must submit your application no later than Friday October 28 at 5 p.m. But whenever you come, he said, wear "comfortable shoes".

Kevin Gordon, 52, drove from Bethel with his son, an 18-year-old first-time voter, to cast their ballots for Hillary Clinton. People who attended say they're leaving the event being able to make a more informed choice at the polls.

Elections officials say because of a court decision Texas voters can cast ballots without photo ID's. She said her office set a goal of getting 360,000 people to the polls between October 24 and November 4.

"I didn't know, but now I know", Russell Dariso said.

Twenty-two polls will be open across the county Tuesday, Nov. 8, for the General Election; those polls will be open from 7:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m. that day.

Colorado, Florida and Wisconsin are some of the battleground states up for grabs. "So, I would expect that we will see probably a large turnout to start off, and then [it will] taper off".

Even before early voting began, more than 1 million Floridians already had voted by mail.

MA joins 32 other states that allow early voting.

Remarks by Republican nominee Donald Trump, alleging without proof a grand conspiracy to "rig" the election, have added to this angst and drawn rebukes from elections officials across the country and leaders in his own party. McDonald told ABC News the steep climb in early voting over recent decades is due to states making early voting more widely available, along with incremental year-to-year increases as voters become more familiar with early-vote procedures.

Said DeBeauvoir, "If there's any disruption, they can call law enforcement, and law enforcement can be there in seconds to address any issues, remove any disruption".
