  • Justice Department sending staff to monitor Tarrant County polling sites on Election Day

You can drop your ballot in those boxes until 8 p.m. Tuesday.

Oklahoma voters are required to show identification before receiving a ballot, which can include a state driver's license, US passport, military identification or a Voter Identification Card issued by a county election board.

Iowa is one of 15 states that makes same day voter registration available on Election Day.

Amid the busy final day of absentee voting on Monday, Sumter County's top elections official offered pointers for voters to avoid lengthy lines at precincts in today's General Midterm Election.

What if I'm not registered?: Polling places in DeKalb County will provide same-day registration, whether you have changed your name or address or are registering new. The previous record in a mid-term election was the 2014 general election with 945,507: 838,484 in-person and 107,023 by mail.

To check your registration status, find your polling place and see a sample ballot, go to chicagoelections.com/info. "We really wanted to insure that Central Iowans that want to vote have a way to get there", DART's Marketing and Communications Director, Erin Hockman said.

The calls to vote and story after story about low voter turnout aren't new, but when compared with voter turnout numbers in other places around the world, the percentage of potential voters who actually cast a ballot in the US may surprise you. That means about 28 percent of all registered Minneapolis voters showed up to vote Tuesday morning.




Angela Buesse of Sycamore casts her ballot while her son Owen, 16 months, tags along Monday at the DeKalb County Legislative Center in Sycamore. All Maine polls will close at 8 p.m.

At Shadow Mountain Grace Campus, a polling place in North Park, about 20 voters lined up before 7 a.m.to be among the first to cast ballots on election day. "And don't walk out of that polling site without getting the help that you need".

In the 2016 presidential election, 306,829 Lake County residents cast votes for a turnout of 71 percent, while in the 2014 midterm, 182,850 residents voted for a turnout of 47 percent.

The report blamed contractor Insight; the contractor turned in its own report, blaming county election workers for not knowing what they were doing.

If you can't reach the voting area because of barriers or other reasons, you can opt for curbside voting.

ME voters will also answer five ballot questions, one of which proposed to increase taxes on higher-income earners to pay for home health care workers. "I think it's kind of a crime that it's not".
