Early Voting Breaks Records; US Officials Hope For Smoother Election Day

New York: The officials hope that the early vote totals will ease the chances of any problems, chaos and conflicts during the US presidential election scheduled on November 3.

Several millions of Americans have come out to cast their vote ahead on the Election day and broke all early voting records. The records have also surpassed the number of votes cast during 2016 elections.

When the voting began in September, there were several issues that emerged during the polls such as the hours-long wait, allegations of voter intimidation and suppression. One such incident happened on Saturday, in North Carolina where police used pepper spray to break a march to a polling place.

However, the tensions are still surrounded over the bitter contest between President Donald and former Vice President Joe Biden which could increase on the election day, whether during the polls, afterwards or when the results will be announced.

The local officials have warned that Trump urging his supporters to “go into the polls and watch” — could lead to conflict. Keeping the situation in mind, the businesses near the White House have been closed in anticipation of potential riots and looting.

During a news conference held last week, Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson said, “We don’t anticipate significant long lines” on Tuesday, because two-thirds of our citizens will likely vote absentee or prior to Election Day, we will see a third of our citizens, probably about 2 million, vote in person on Election Day,” was quoted as saying by CNN.

“If you do choose that, Benson added, “we’re confident that your health and safety will be protected and you don’t have to anticipate long lines.”

According to reports by Edison Research, there are millions of mail ballots in the key battleground states were requested by voters but haven’t been returned. The largest number of unreturned ballots were from Ohio and Georgia. Also, in other states like Lowa, all requested ballots have been returned.
