Rusty Jacobs with North Carolina Public radio has more state law already allowed for counting absentee ballots postmarked by but received up to three days after election Day. But the governor appointed Democratic Majority State Elections board agreed to extend the deadline by six days to November 12th, part of a legal settlement in state court, with advocacy groups that suit to his absentee ballot rules amid the covered 19 pandemic. GOP state lawmakers went to the U. S. Supreme Court for an emergency stay of the extension after being rejected by a federal appeals court. They accused Democratic appointees of trying to circumvent state law and rig the elections. Five justices declined to intervene in the case. Three justices dissented for NPR news.

"What's different? I think what's really interesting is what the same this year has been really unique in a lot of ways obviously. But we just got our final will of this election cycle yesterday and the numbers are incredibly similar to the final poll that we got in two thousand sixteen in terms of the margin for Joe. Biden. He's leading by five points among likely voters, Hillary Clinton, at this time was leading by six points. We have about eight percent saying they're still undecided. That's really similar to what we saw in sixteen. So we are set up for kind of. You know the potential of the kind of swing that we saw in two thousand sixteen where Clinton was leading in the polls and trump ended up winning Wisconsin. By a really narrow margin although. I'm although I'm just thinking about the numbers we heard from Michigan where they might have five million votes can't be absolutely sure but might have five million votes, and if that's the case about half of them are already in have already been sent his absentee ballots is something similar happening in Wisconsin? Absolutely, we're seeing absentee numbers like we've never seen before this year we passed one point, five, million early votes as of yesterday, which is more than half of the total 2016 turn out in Wisconsin and obviously, we still have days to go to add to those numbers. So we're seeing people move early cast those ballots early. And obviously that kind of changes tone. I WANNA come back to. Katie. Meier. Who is in Pennsylvania because that is particularly interesting state in one that people keep looking at a tipping point that Pennsylvania might be the one that tells you who's going to win the election and Katie I know that in two thousand Sixteen Democrats were surprised by the enormous strength of Donald Trump in rural areas I, mean the Republicans win rural areas but they won rural Pennsylvania even more than expected is that likely to change in two thousand twenty? Good question I mean I think we absolutely are still seeing. This trend in Pennsylvania where these former union strongholds in the northeast and in the western parts of the state have flipped very hard for Donald Trump and certainly we're expecting high turnout and we're expecting enthusiastic voting to come from those places. At the same time, you know we've seen an increasing numbers, the south eastern part of the state and the area outside of Pittsburgh going Bluer and Bluer. So for instance, you know in two thousand, eighteen, we had enormous democratic sweeps in our State House and Senate. And in Congress in those areas so you know those give you some sense of where people are and I do think Republican turnout has been in some cases matched by Democratic Gotcha. Okay. So suburbs going a little more democratic Katie, Meier of whyy. Laurel White of WPRO and Abigail Sanski of W. A. R.. Thanks to all of you. Of course. Thank you. Thank you..

Kelly says he would vote for either. Democratic candidate is a better chance of beating. Trump is not that I like Biden any more than I like Sanders but I just think he has a better chance of winning the election. Outside waiting in line colleen burns agrees with Kelly. There's a lot of people that I know that I'm actually a Republicans that have been on the fence and they would not have crossed the fence for Bernie but they definitely will for Joe going into. Today's primary. Many Democrats in Michigan agree on only one thing. According to Kelly they'll support whoever gets the Democratic nomination. Absolutely my my saying is vote. Blue no matter who for here and now. I'm Abigail Sanski to twitter now CEO. Jack Dorsey has reached a deal this week with activist investors who had been pushing for him to step down but Dorsey days at the helm of twitter may still be numbered. Let's bring in Casey Newton. He's the Silicon Valley editor for the verge and joins us now from San Francisco. Hey Casey hither so Dorsey has been targeted by investor Elliott management which is considered an activist investor. As I mentioned who are they? And why did they apparently want Dorsey out? Well there are some times called the most feared investor in the world because they have such a good track record at getting what they want. They famously fought a fifteen year battle against Argentina to get Argentina payback some debts and they know they won that case and made a tidy profit. You know when it comes to twitter. I think like a lot of investors. They noticed that the stock just seemed to be underperforming. If you looked at some of the other social networks their stocks had been up something like you know one hundred percent or more in the case of facebook over the past five years while twitter's was actually down user growth wasn't very good and Jack Dorsey has been. Ceo that whole time so they came in and they said Hey. If you don't make some changes around here we think Jack. Dorsey needs to go well. What changed the investors minds? Why did they reverse course on this campaign to push out Dorsey? Well it's amazing how fast they changed their minds. They they only wrote their initial letter to Dorsey. Something like five business days before twitter capitulated but what twitter agreed to do in the near term was to bring on a two of their chosen board members. So twitter's board is expanding to include those two new members and it will include a third new independent director at some point down the line. Twitter also agreed to spend two billion dollars buying back its own stock which will presumably cause the stock price to go up and then that will address another one of the investors concerns. Okay all of these changes made but you write the Jack. Dorsey brought himself more time as twitter. Ceo But it may not matter. Do you think he'll still be ousted in the future. Well they've given him some very aggressive goals to hit. As part of a kind of performance improvement plan he needs to grow twitter's user base by twenty percent this year he needs to accelerate the rate at which revenue is growing and as fears over a pandemic spread and the stock market continues to take a hit That could be very very difficult to do so. I do think that there's a very good chance that by the end of the year Dorsey will not have been able to hit the metrics that the investors have demanded and that could once again put him on the chopping block. I want to ask you about something else. Twitter is also in the news today This week the company implemented its new manipulated media tag for the first time and it was used to mark edited video of Joe Biden. That was tweeted by White House. Director of Social Media Dansk Gavino and re tweeted by our President. Twitter said. The video was deliberately misleading. What is the significance of that? So the big question as these tools to edit videos have become more democratized as what? What do we do win? One of those videos goes viral right. Maybe it's had some pauses edited into it or the clips are taken out of order to sort of suggest something that the person in the video didn't actually intend and historically social networks have not wanted to touch this subject at all but as a criticism has come in that they are essentially aiding in the spread misinformation Over time they become more willing to take action and so twitter. This year said that in cases like this it was going to put on a label to these videos Denoting the fact that they'd been manipulated and for the first time they actually did it and I do think it's a big a big deal. I like to say that policy is what you actually enforce. Then there was some question about whether or twitter would actually be willing to slap a label on on something that I had the president's endorsement to but they did and now the question is sort of bad well you know is it effective or not it actually rating misinformation. Yeah I mean that is the big question of the day. Will it make any difference? In stopping the spread of false or misleading information online. I mean do you think we'll start to see more videos being tagged I do and I think that there's going to be more debates over. How should we design those labels facebook famously when they started putting on labels that said Hey? This news story is false actually made people share the more surveys start to say. This has been disputed and I think we're GONNA see a similar evolution on.
