Things going over here listening to you since 1998 and screwed. You saved my many times. Oh, thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I appreciate it. Uh, just had a quick question about I want to take an older laughed. I bought two laptops. So there's been working great, but my two older ones. Want to give him my grandson. I want to take the old Spending drives out. Nice, solid. Nice. Uh, what I'm question is how do I reinstall Windows out of what was that way? Yes. So you could if my opinion, um you don't want to give him the drive as it is. You might be tempted. Sometimes people are say, well, he'll have all my programs, you know, give you ready to go, But that's yeah, I think it's the best thing to do is not just give him a clean installing windows. Let him do what he wants with it after that. So, in fact, depending on how technically is maybe just given the laptop with an empty drives say you figure it out. It might be a good exercise for for a grandkid is Are they running windows? 10? These old laptops. Well, there we have upgraded from one was 711 day, but they're running 10 now. They're running beautiful then this is an easy thing to do. Because Microsoft remember in the old days windows you had to have a serial number. And you had authorized it all this stuff. You don't do that anymore. Once that once the machines running windows 10 Microsoft calls it an entitlement it can you confer there ever after? You never need a serial number. You can install Windows 10 on it and even taking out the old hard driving, putting in a new one. Won't affect that. So if you changed a lot of components it might but not the drive by itself, So all you need to do is get the windows Media creation tool. Put it on a USB key. You need a 16 gig USB key. And it'll be little you downloaded from Microsoft. Get it from Microsoft, by the way, don't get from anybody else, always a risk, you know, because somebody could put bad stuff in there. But you get from Microsoft just safe. It's called the Just Google Windows Media creation tool, It'll say, Do you want the 64 bit of the 32 bit version? You want 2 64 bit version and say, OK, and it's going to give you the latest, which is 20 0 for actually might give you aged 28 2 now. Probably will give you 20 age to now the latest version of windows. You put that on the USB key little They have instructions for how to do that. Now That's a Windows installer. In fact, that's a really good thing to have just in general. It's pretty easy. Most laptops. Some laptops have actually a port so you can open it up. Put a new driving most of time. You just unscrew the back. It'll be very obvious where to put the driving. I would suggest Googling the specific model and replace hard drive just so that you understand what's involved are friends that I fixed. It usually have videos on how to do that. But YouTube will also have videos and it's a good idea to watch that video before you attempt this just to make sure you're comfortable with what's required some laptops for examples laptops. And many modern windows laptops like Lenovo's ThinkPads. They sought, er everything in you can't easily replace it. Del I I just put a new two terabyte drive in my 2020 del X P s was it was easy.

"Right now. Pennsylvania is looking at counting roughly 100,000 or so ballast to go. 6.7 million have already been cast. We do know that a majority of balance they're still being counted here in Philadelphia, as well as in Allegheny County, which includes Pittsburgh.

The majority of them are melon dollars, and those have been breaking heavily for Joe Biden as well. He has a lead right now roughly 14 or 15,000 votes.

There's been a lot of legal interest here.

Pennsylvania ballot counting is delayed

"In Pennsylvania, they've announced that Allegheny County is not going to begin counting about 30,000 ballots. Until tomorrow. These systems are just broken. They're just broken. I mean that the possibility of undermining public confidence is so unbelievably high when you delay the count's this way when you're not counting through the night when you are delaying the counts. And obviously it's because of this patchwork of laws that have been created. That's not just on Democrats and Republicans. It was on Republicans in Wisconsin. It's on Republicans to a certain extent in Arizona. A lot of the message that air created here bipartisan message and they require natural cleanup. There's a reason that Florida runs this thing. Really tightly runs. This runs really clean shit when it comes to the voting count. According Crisp Otter. The reason why Allegheny County, which includes Areas that are very democratic and could make up the difference for the four for Joe Biden against Donald Trump in Pennsylvania. Right now, Trump holds a very slim lead in Pennsylvania. The reason that Allegheny County apparently is being delayed is because the ballots in question, according Chris Potter, who's reporter for W say, require special attention. The vast majority of the 29,000 involved situation where a vendor sent the wrong balance voters and then had to reissue new balance with the correct races. Challenges there. Now voters who have to balance one with the wrong race is you have to give those balances special security to make sure that a people don't vote twice and B. If they just send in the old one. They don't vote in races. They are eligible for us. You can't just scan them along with the rest. Other ballots in the pot include those that don't scan for another reason. When a team won't process the amount of the check. You want deposits. You have to bring it into the bank office when ballots required special scrutiny. The county records at the vote through return board whose members are sworn in and for that purpose. The board reviews the results tell it up by election workers after polls closed but also addressed his provisional ballots. Military ballots, etcetera. Board members are said to be sworn in Tomorrow, the Friday after Election Day. Is nothing in the fairy is here. The county's GOP chair is comfortable with the process. This is also not people just taking a day off. The other factors. The county has to wait until Friday for mail in ballots to come in there were postmarked by Election Day. That whole situation was adjudicated by the courts as faras the complaints that that Republicans have about ballots coming in after Election Day, they're not postmarked. Those ballots are in fact being sequestered there being kept separate from the other ballots until if the Supreme Court has to rule on that the Supreme Court will rule on that. As well. There are a lot of rumors out there right now regarding the possibility of voter irregularities and voter fraud. This is exacerbated by the fact that the Trump team is filing some fairly while predicated lawsuits. Apparently there's one lawsuit in Pennsylvania that they just had granted. It was an injunction forcing The trump ballot watchers to be allowed into The balloting areas. So this is it's all a mess. I mean, I think the short story here is is all a mess.

"It's here and now Pennsylvania is a crucial battleground state another Blue Wall ST that Donald Trump won in 2016, and that Joe Biden hopes to win this year. It will take some time to count all the ballots cast in Pennsylvania and to know which candidate will actually win the 20 electoral college votes. Joining us now is W reporter Lucy Perkins. She's at the Allegheny County Elections Warehouse. Lucie welcome. Thank you. So there is a legal fight over mail in ballots in Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania Republicans tried to block the counting of late arriving ballots. But the U. S. Supreme Court ruled that ballots that arrived by Friday and are postmarked by November, 3rd can be counted. So what's the timeline for getting the final vote count in Pennsylvania? That is what everybody is wondering right now. So you know right now, what's happening is that Allegheny County and a lot of counties are still tallying mail in ballots there about a million left to count in Pennsylvania. These are ballots that obviously were received before eight PM deadline on Election Day, But counties have been asked to set any ballots aside that they've received today or tomorrow or Friday. Up until that five PM deadline. I know that here In the Pittsburgh area. They received 500 ballots in the mail today that they'll be adding to that count. So we are tallying those and then you know, there are other ballots in Allegheny County that we can't even begin to start tallying until Friday, like provisional ballots, so people who had Problems with their mail in ballots or, you know, never got their Millon dollars or something like that. They could go to the polls and vote provisionally. So those those numbers we don't even know yet how many how many ballots, provisional ballots where were were cast so You know, it's going to be a days It's gonna be days. Yeah, for sure. You know, Trump beat Hillary Clinton by just 44,000 votes in 2016 margin less than 1%. The Trump campaign is calling for a recount in Wisconsin. Should we expect a recount in Pennsylvania? I mean, of course, I'm asking you this question, Lucy, knowing that we still have so many ballots that have yet to be counted. But what would that look like? Well, you're right. It is very early to be asking that question. And, you know, we've talked to officials this morning and this afternoon who have kind of agreed with that, But it would be very early to even talk about that. Pennsylvania does allow for an automatic recount, if if it's less than 0.5% Point victory for one candidate or the other, But again, we won't even know that into all these ballots are counted. You know, we also are waiting for military and overseas ballots that have Until next Tuesday to get in. So you know, there are lots of deadlines that we're days away from reaching. Yeah, I mentioned you're you're at an election's warehouse. What's it like there today? And what's the mood? The state overall is everyone is just waiting and watching Pennsylvania. Yeah, I mean, in the lead up to the election, all the voters I talked to were anxious on both sides. You know, this was a swing state that was decided by 44,292 votes in 2016, and that's the number that's burned into a lot of people's brains here. So in the lead up people who are really anxious. They were hoping to see their candidate win big so that it didn't come down to Pennsylvania. But obviously it might, and that's kind of the same feeling that that we're seeing in the warehouse, you know. There's been some issues with scanners jamming ballots that were, you know, folded for a long period of time, have Really sharp creases in them because voters were nervous and they got their ballots back sooner. But that meant they were sitting in envelopes for longer and it takes more work to flatten them and scan them so they're more jams, and that's forced officials to upload ballots in smaller batches. So it's really just a waiting game right now, and there's there's anxiety, but we're just sitting Yeah, a lot of pressure as well because the president has spoken about Pennsylvania and the potential for voter fraud. He's really putting that out there. Yes, on DH. That's obviously nothing new from from the president's rhetoric, but I spoke with one of the members of the Allegheny County Boards of Board of Elections is a Republican, he said. You know, he's been surveilling and supervising Thie election account here at the warehouse that I've been at for much of the last day and He has no reason to believe that there's been any fraud. He says that Allegheny County at least is pulling off the best processing job of these these ballots of any county in the state, and he Expect anything coming down the pike in the future to be done in the same manner. That's a W A s a reporter Lucy Perkins joining us from the Allegheny County Elections Warehouse. Lucy Thank you so much. Thank you. And let's go back to Wisconsin in Joe Biden's calm now, although the Trump campaign is calling for a recount, as we've said Earlier in the day, Election Commission Administrator Megan Wolf said with all unofficial results, but one small township in Joe Biden was in the lead by a little more than 21,000 votes. President Trump's campaign manager is claiming reports of irregularities in several Wisconsin counties and is requesting a recount. But former Republican Governor Scott Walker tweeted that Biden's tally might be too high. A hurdle for President Trump to overcome very burden is director of the Elections Research Center at the University of Wisconsin Madison. Barry. First of all we heard just a bit ago on the program that the reason that small township hasn't delivered the ballots is that someone went home sick, which is kind of sweet in a way, you know, that's really You know real boots on the ground politics, nobody could figure out again and get them. But what about the Trump campaign's allegations of regularities poll workers improperly Correcting or curing ballots. What is that? It's hard to know exactly what is meant by that. At this point. It's really just in early assertion, and I think we'll have to be followed up by details in litigation. On and the initial complaint that the campaign or its allies might file There've been a lot of absentee ballots, of course cast in Wisconsin, as there have been in so many states this year. A new process for a lot of voters and I think has really taxed the capacities of election officials. I'm not aware of any irregularities, but it will be incumbent on the trump folks to point those out and identify them. And what does that mean to cure a ballot? Well, there are cases in every state but also in Wisconsin, where a ballot is missing something when it's returned to the election official, it may be missing the signature of the voter on the outside of the sort of certificate envelope. It may be missing the signature of a witness, which is required in Wisconsin. Or maybe even more Commonly, The address of the witness must be written on the envelope. And so it's there's a There's an opportunity for clerks if they have time before the election to reach out to those voters to try to correct those problems, and sometimes the ballots are mailed back to the voter. Secure them. Sometimes the voters invited to come into the office to add a signature provides some other information. So apparently, the Trump campaign is focused on some aspect of that curing process, particularly in Milwaukee, where there were the largest number of absentee ballots. But we don't know exactly just yet what their concern is. Well, your election Commission administrator, Megan Wolf is bristling at the notion that people were doing anything improper. So we'll see how that plays out. But how does it play out? I mean, if there is a recount How does that work? We all think of hanging chads. You know, in Florida, the little piece of paper that you know, people weren't sure if it was a punched through vote or just a thing hanging there. What? What does the recount look like? If it is to happen in your state? Well, nearly every voter in the state uses an optical scan ballot. So this looks like a scantron test. You may be familiar with filling in a bubble for a candidate that's then fed into a machine that optically reads the valid That means there's a paper record that can be reviewed Eat..

Absentee-Ballot Expansion Promotes Early Voting This Year

Absentee-Ballot Expansion Promotes Early Voting This Year

"Early than ever before, way more at 2.5 weeks before Election Day, Some states are already up to a third of their total turnouts from 2016. That's being driven by absentee ballot expansion all over the country because of the pandemic and a surge of in person early voting, But not everything has gone smoothly. We've seen long lines in Georgia and Texas and tens of thousands of mistakes with mail ballots. Joining us now to talk about all of this is NPR's Miles parks who covers voting. Hey, miles high there. So just how big has the early voting this year? It's been huge, more than 17. Million people have voted already, according to this database compiled by University of Florida professor Michael McDonald, and it's hard to really overstate how unprecedented that is. You know, it's about five times as many people who had voted at the same time in the 2016 cycle. Target smart. This data firm that works with Democrats has done some analysis on the initial numbers has been significantly more Democrats than Republicans, which isn't that surprising when you consider you know the sort of rhetoric President Trump specifically is used about vote by mail, But there are also some other interesting trends. You know, we're seeing more than seven times as many African American voters at this point now, as opposed to 2016 Which seems to be driven by this increase in early voting access in states with higher black populations like North Carolina, Georgia and Virginia. That's interesting. Well, we have been seeing pictures of these long lines at many of these early polling places. Can you talk about how smoothly the vote has been going so far? Yeah, There's clearly been some hiccups with in person and with vote by mail options, it seems like computer problems have contributed to a lot of the in person delays that people have seen photos off in Georgia. The database used to check people in was slowed down because of all of this traffic on the website. There were similar stories in Texas Houston Public Media's Elizabeth Tro Vel spoke to a voter named Renee, who spent nearly four hours in line going to three different precincts. I cry. I frankly think it's a form of voter suppression. There's no way there should be a glitch on the first day of early voting. No way and then you're gonna tell me I gotta one place and they say it's the printer. Come over here. This is the printer. Then they said the main system I've just never seen anything like this ever. You know this is a tough problem for election officials. Obviously, no one should have to wait that long to vote. But we also knew the pandemic, combined with potentially historic turnout would be in some problems for in person. Voting and lines do usually get better, I should say after the first couple days of early voting the wait times in Gwinnett County, Georgia, for instance, which was showing waits at 234 hours earlier this week on its online tracker today, when you look it was mostly under an hour. Well, what about voting by mail? I mean, a lot of people have been worried about the post office handling so many ballots are those concerns justified so far. Yeah, I mean, we've seen a lot of administrative errors, reports of administrative errors with the absentee balloting. Just yesterday in Pennsylvania, Allegheny County announced that 28,000 voters got mailed the wrong ballots, but it's also important to realize scale. We're talking about thousands of ballots, but 80 million ballots have been requested nationwide. Here's former deputy Postmaster general Ron Stroman. Despite some of those concerns, things were going at this point I'm reasonably well, Stroman said. It's important to remember that if you're hearing about a mistake at this point in the election, like in Allegheny County, for instance, officials realized their errors early enough to send out new ballots and fix the problems. That is NPR's miles. Parks. Thank you, Miles. Thank you. One company

"For the yes are sorry for the quick, quick delay Their folks I got, guys. I'm sorry to scare you. I had to bend down to get a piece paper than I thought I could grab it quickly, And then I had extend myself a little further self. I apologize, sort for this light the light, so Bill Barb sure is going to get tested every day for the next week or 10 days. To see what's going on. And then I mentioned Mike Pence as well. So with Vice President Pence he was involved in a little fender bender bus crash and just kind of odd. I don't know how If the VP is in a bus, the sitting vice president United States how traffic would have this type of proximity to his campaign bus, But earlier today there was an accident. With Pence's bus and a dump truck. What's AH dub truck. I know folks are probably looking for all kinds of symbolism and irony. Here. Listen, the facts are that vice President Pence was in a vehicle collision. This happened this morning. He's out stumping for Trump Pence 2020. He is going for the western Pennsylvania. And His bus collided with a dump truck. This was an Allegheny County. For the media want near the Pittsburgh area, right around 11 a.m. This morning that the Trump 2020 campaign bus collided with a dump truck and again, I'll say it again. How the heck did a dump truck or any traffic? Uh, have that close. I thought they roadblock, don't they? As you travel, Don't they have a A motorcade to protect against this kind of thing or any a dump truck collision. Into the Trump 2020 campaign bus. So after the minor fender bender than the journey resumed. In a limo. So I I guess he got off the campaign bus and then got into a limo. So I don't know if that means that the campaign bus was incapacitated again. I printed the story. They might be more information out on it now. But he did resume. He wasn't hurt the vice president Ah, and then this is insane, then. Some motorcycles that were part of the security detail. Then, about 15 minutes later, they went down. So two motorcycles as part of the security detail, part of the motorcade. I would imagine war. Part of maybe police blocking roads. Two motorcycles went down. And there was an ambulance spotted at the scene of this second accident so within the span of 15 minutes in western Pennsylvania, The Trump 2020. Campaign tour bus with vice president Pence on board gets hit by a dump truck. And then 15 minutes later, we have motorcycles to go down. Requiring an ambulance. But I think the writers were okay and they were just being checked out as a precaution, according to the reports that I saw so clearly a just an odd day. Does anything, folks surprise you? Does anything these days shock you in the very least? No, it's Kelly. We're in crazy world that we have. Ah, the Yankees schedule now a sort of influx. We have a Phillies Corona virus cases. Now we'll get to this in just a matter of moments on then what's going on? With Major League Baseball. And what are these baby sitters? That Major league Baseball is? Ah, making the teams travel with so I'll tell you about that. And then of course we have. Ah, the N ba In the bubble, so that's coming up in just a bit.
