Governor, Cuomo is now admitting the state should have released more data on nursing home residents who died from covert 19. Last week. A leaked discussion between a top Cuomo aid and Democratic lawmakers showed his administration delayed releasing data. Because of an inquiry by former President Trump's Justice Department. Almost says state health officials complied with the federal probe, but he acknowledges the damage of keeping the data hidden. The void we created by not providing information was filled with skepticism and cynicism and conspiracy theories. Which furthered the confusion. Republicans and several Democratic lawmakers have called for Cuomo's resignation and for investigations into his nursing home policies. They also want to strip Cuomo of his public health emergency powers. The U. S. Senate has acquitted President Trump for incitement of insurrection, but he still faces legal challenges in courts across the country.

"I'm 10 Xena Vega and this is the takeaway and it's Election Day in the United States, nearly 100 million people have already submitted their ballots and early voting. That's more than 71%. Of the total number of votes that were cast in 2016 across the country. Voters were taken to the polls today in their last opportunity to cast a ballot. So we're checking in with public radio reporters around the country in key states to see how the voting process there is playing out. We start in the state of Wisconsin. My name is Rob Men, Sir. I am the rural communities reporter for Wisconsin Public Radio. I'm based in in central Wisconsin. So in Wisconsin, as in a lot of places, there was a huge wave of absentee voting. And so we have had something on the order of 1.5 million absentee ballots that were Turned ahead of Election Day and Wisconsin is also a state that does not permit tabulating of ballots before Election Day. So clerks across the state you are sitting on these large caches of absentee ballots that won't be tabulated and sort of counted until after voting closes tonight, which is why we expect that in Wisconsin. The results might take until you know well into Wednesday morning for us to know with the election looks like Wisconsin right now is one of the top hot spots for covert 19 in the nation and in some parts of the state infection rates have been climbing and hospitalization rates and and so on. And so this is one reason why so many people have chose to vote early, but it's like not distributed evenly across the state. The urban areas and suburban areas are much more likely to have requested and returned absentee ballots in Than in rural areas. Still, you know, less than half of expected voter turnout has been absentee in rural areas, so there's expectation that there will be a lot more people voting in person. And so as a result, there's more risk of exposure to the disease. Wisconsin has same day voter registration. Ah, And so there are a CE faras barriers to voting. Wisconsin has Ah voter ID requirement, which has been was, you know very controversial and fought over in courts but ultimately upheld since it was was passed, and some people see that as as a barrier to voting. However, there is same day voter registration, so People who have an I D and have you? No. Can consort approve their their residency and so on, have the option to show up at the polls and register and still have cast a vote that's gonna count in this election. Next, we move south to North Carolina. I'm Rusty Jacob's cover politics for North Carolina Public radio W. UNC. It's not an overstatement to say that the turnout during 17 days of early voting that's in person voting as well as absolutely by mail. Voting has been unprecedented. North Carolina heading into Election Day saw more than 61%. Of registered voters turn out with early in person. Voting in absentee by mail. North Carolina put itself in a really good position to deal with the flood of absentee ballots this year. North Carolina legislators passed a bill in June a bipartisan bill which is rare in these parts. That is a lot of Rules around absentee voting, including giving county boards the authority to start tabulating processing absentee ballots as much as five weeks away from Election day that will ease the counting in the home stretch or at the end of Election Day. That being said that doesn't mean there hasn't been a lot of partisan rancor and strife around, especially the issue of absentee ballot. Rules after the legislation was passed in June that did ease some absentee ballot rules. Advocacy groups started filing lawsuits against state agencies, including the elections board. The elections board tried to settle a lot of these lawsuits with a comprehensive agreement and what they proposed was extending. The deadline for counting absentee ballots postmarked by Wood received after Election Day. The state law had already said that ballots host marked by election Day but received up to three days afterwards could be counted. They that is the elections board extended that 29 days November 12th nine days after election Day. Republicans in the Legislature immediately sought to block that in courts. As you may know, the U. S. Supreme Court, a majority of 53 majority decided not to intervene. And not to grant Republicans request for an emergency stay so that extended deadline exists. And Pennsylvania could be a huge tipping point this year. Let's head there now. My name's Katie Myer, the political reporter for W. H Y y Public radio in Philadelphia. We've kind of seen our counties become overloaded and had Teo learn new systems and procedures on the fly. In a way that they didn't expect to before. On. One of the biggest things that's come out of that is it's just going to take us a really long time to count votes. Pennsylvania is allowing some votes to be counted between 8 P.m. on November 3rd with count is supposed to be cut off and by the PM on November 6th. And that was because you know the state Supreme Court allowed that extension because of male delays. The Trump Administration has been calling into question and Republicans in the state and Republicans elsewhere in Pennsylvania have been saying that they don't believe that those vote should be counted. Because they think it's not legal. So there have been lawsuits moving up and down the state and into the Supreme Court. The extension has been upheld for now, but we could see more lawsuits afterward. So that's part of this. The other issue is Trump Administration has also been saying, Oh, well, You know, if we don't have the count on election night, then there might be questions about how you know how legitimate the counters And you know, the answer here is just that we would never going to have results in Pennsylvania on election night. You know, it's just it's too many ballots to count. It's just going to take a long time. You won't see results from Pennsylvania on election that you're going to see some results, but they won't be complete. All of this logistical stuff has been tough for voters, and I think it makes it even tougher because we are sort of the consensus swim state. One of the big questions this year is will the lone Star State of Texas turned blue name is Joey. Goes on the local government reporter in San Antonio for Texas Public radio. We're seeing a surge of voting in Texas right now, At the end of early voting on Friday about 9.7 million people have already.

"One another. That's how business is the size of small countries. Stay agile. Learn more at it. Lassie in dot com. Rest of Jacob's just mention the governor's race. North Carolina is one of just 11 states holding gubernatorial elections in 2020, and you can bet voters think those governors handled the response to the pandemic is top of mind. I asked Rusty have Governor Cooper is faring at this point. Overall, his policy in his approach and his steering of the state through this pandemic is still supported by a majority of people that would be pulled. I mean, Elon University and MEREDITH College and Rollie did polls recently, and those indicate there were indications that It's not the plurality were not the majority of plurality. Ah, voters of registered voters expected voters to support Governor Cooper's decisions. Even though big counsel restraint and it's still there are still challenges to the economic, the economic community, the business community but overall, but he does not seem to be damaged by those positions. Michael let's get to the point. At risk you brought up in that we talked a lot about with Damon Circosta about absentee ballot requests. You are following this more closely than certainly. I think anyone in the country So here we are. It's September. What can you tell us about the voters who have been requesting thie absentee ballots if you can break it down into the kinds of people and the parts of the state that requesting these ballots Yeah, well, typically for those folks who don't know much about North Carolina in 2016 less than 5% of all the ballots cast came from absentee by mail, and typically, that boat method tends to be more Republican. Then the electorate as a whole what we're seeing now. Is basically 10% off. The seven million registered voters in the state have requested in absentee by mail ballot that 700,000 Four years ago. This same day, the total number of ballots requested was a little over 40,000. So, basically, we're talking about 16 times what we saw this time four years ago. Now the breakdowns in terms ofthe party registration is really interesting because it is overwhelmingly coming from registered Democrats. They are over a majority of all the request. Registered unaffiliated or almost a third and registered Republicans that typically tend to dominate or only 16% off all the request. So something obviously is driving all of this. This is probably Covad infecting partisanship. To a level that I haven't seen. And I don't think anybody in North Carolina politics has seen this level of interest in terms of having a ballot in your hand in case something happens over the next two months how this plays out. I'm not really sure the request are actually quite representative of the electric racially. It's used older, which is traditional. But it also very much skews too. Urban counties and particularly some congressional districts that are very competitive, most notably the 11th congressional district, Mark Meadows Old District, which is now on open seat in the mountains of North Carolina. Rusty Jacob's Michael bit, sir. This has been great. Thank you so much for taking this time with me. Appreciate it. Rusty Jacobs is a political reporter at W. UNC North Carolina Public Radio.

"Back climate change each day we bring you fresh insights, unique voices, one of a kind reporting Join us for an hour that takes you around the globe. It's right here. It's the world you can hear the world this afternoon at two. This's cake, San Francisco and cake. North Highlands, Sacramento. The time now is 1 30. It's politics with Amy Walter on the takeaway. For most of the last 40 years, North Carolina had been a rather reliable Republican state. Since 2008. The state has become much more competitive. Barack Obama narrowly won here by less than a point in 2008, Mitt Romney. He carried the state by just two points. Trump won it by just three. This state is big and diverse. It has fast growing urban centers like Charlotte in the research triangle, but it also has huge rural stretches as well. And reaching voters here is incredibly expensive because there's not just one main media market that encompasses the majority of voters understand a bit more about the political dynamics at play in North Carolina, I spoke to Rusty Jacob's politics reporter at W. UNC North Carolina public radio. And Michael Bitzer, a professor of political science at Catawba College. I asked Michael if it's an influx of voters to the state that has made North Carolina more competitive. It is certainly in migration. We're seeing more and more people registering unaffiliated. That does not mean that they are independent or non partisan. But they are just choosing to go unaffiliated in this state because they want to have options, particularly when it comes to party. Mary's on affiliated voters, Khun Vote in either one. I would also add that there is a geographic in a generational dynamic that is playing out. Really, that mirrors kind of the national dynamics. I think what we're seeing geographically, it's urban vs rural, But in the suburbs of North Carolina, you have to kind of think about Suburb Center inside Urban counties, versus the excerpts, the surrounding suburban counties two very different dynamics playing out there is also the generational component. There's 37% of our seven million registered voters are under the age of 40. And so millennials and now Gens. Ears are really going to reshape this state. And I think if they play true to the national Dynamics, we could go from center lean right to center Lean left in terms of North Carolina politics moving forward..

"That will help propel it. So you see the governor's race? Certainly reflection of that debate. We have to take a quick break more with Rusty Jacobson. Michael Bitzer in just a moment. Take away supported by it last year. Fortune 500 companies use collaboration software like Kira and Trail Oh from it last year, enabling teams to keep a line two key goals and connected to one another. That's how business is the size of small countries. Stay agile. Learn more at it. Lesson dot com. Rest of Jacob's just mention the governor's race. North Carolina is one of just 11 states holding gubernatorial elections in 2020, and you can bet voters think those governors handled the response to the pandemic is top of mind. I asked Rusty how Governor Cooper is faring at this point. Overall, his policy in his approach and his steering of the state through this pandemic is still supported by a majority. Of people that would be pulled. I mean, Elon University and MEREDITH College and Rollie did polls recently, and those indicate there were indications that if not, the plurality were not the majority of plurality. Ah, voters of registered voters expected voters to support Governor Cooper's decisions. Even though they counsel restraint and it's still there are still challenges to the economic curtain, the economic community, the business community, but overall, but he does not seem to be damaged by those positions. Michael let's get to the point. At risk you brought up in that we talked a lot about with Damon Circosta about absentee ballot requests. You are following this more closely than certainly. I think anyone in the country so here we are. It's September. What can you tell us about the voters who have been requesting thie absentee ballots if you can break it down into the kinds of people And the parts of the state that requesting these ballots. Yeah, well, typically for those folks who don't know much about North Carolina in 2016 less than 5% of all the ballots cast came from absentee by mail, and typically, that boat method tends to be more Republican. Then the electorate as a whole what we're seeing now. Is it? Basically 10% off. The seven million registered voters in the state have requested an absentee by mail ballot that 700,004 years ago. This same day, the total number of ballots requested was a little over 40,000. So, basically, we're talking about 16 times what we saw this time four years ago. Now the breakdowns in terms ofthe party registration is really interesting because it is overwhelmingly coming from registered Democrats. They are over a majority of all the request. Registered unaffiliated or almost a third and registered Republicans that typically tend to dominate or only 16% of all the request. So something obviously is driving all of this. This is probably Covad infecting partisanship. To a level that I haven't seen, and I don't think anybody in North Carolina politics has seen this level of interest in terms of having a ballot in your hand in case something happens over the next two months how this plays out. I'm not really sure the request are actually quite representative of the electorate. Racially, it skews older, which is traditional. But it's also very much skews, too. Urban counties and particularly some congressional districts that are very competitive, most notably the 11th congressional district, Mark Meadows Old district, which is now on open seat in the mountains of North Carolina. Rusty Jacob's Michael bit, Sir, This has been great. Thank you so much for taking this time with me. Appreciate it..

North Carolina will become the first state to send out absentee ballots requested by voters today as Rusty Jacob's reports from member station W. UNC Demand for vote by mail ballots is way up. Absentee ballot requests in this battleground state are more than 16 times ahead of where they were at this 160.2016, driven by fears of voting in person and made the Corona virus pandemic.

"To North Carolina now president trump is taking credit for a conservative Republicans win there and yesterday special election and that conservative Republican Dan bishop is giving trump all the credit bishop won the open ninth district house seat over the Democrat Democrat he a day after president trump held a rally there last night bishop praise truck during his victory speech we're not tired of waiting we're just getting started winning because we're seeing successful results. as for university Jacobs politics reporter for W. you and see and rusty you've been covering this campaign for months it's been a GOP stronghold for decades what's the reaction there to Denver ships when. well for Republicans is probably a sigh of relief it was a close race that was not a surprise but for the Democrats they may actually see a silver lining in the defeat I I think that the reaction for for Democrats is that this is an indication North Carolina is truly a battleground state you've got statewide races coming up in twenty twenty and so they're probably seen the more positive aspects of a close to feet well and how tight wasn't a rehearing five thousand votes that's right a little less than five thousand I believe in it's about a two percent margin and what's interesting is it's an eight county is a district that covers eight counties they were split Macready gotten the did the Democrat got four counties bishop got four Macready one where you would expect a Democrat to win he he won the more urban area of of Mecklenburg but he also got some swirl pockets Robison county Anson county so it just goes to show it's it's a very tight district but it is possibly an indication robin that no Democrat could win in the ninth district awaits strong even if you said that the best you could do is maybe a two percent margin well the president is saying that you know he not only helped them they should be really helped him he's tweeting out that bishop was down seventeen point three weeks ago and he asked me for help we change the strategy and he ran a great race big rally last night. two things here first of all is that true is Dan bishop down seventeen points in the present pull them up but also I mean the person probably pulled off a little then the Providence of that tape days is is questionable but it is true that Dan bishop road or board campaigned on the coattails of Donald Trump and go for broke he from the very beginning said I am a trump Republican I want to help build a wall on the southern border I want to protect gun rights and so he attached himself to trump and said that the president needs Congress members who will support his agenda do or die Democrat he on the other hand as much as Dan bishop tried to put him in a demonized progressive wing of the Democratic Party he went Macready that is ran a very centrist campaign I think he avoided saying the word Democrat as often as possible he said I'm a marine I served with a platoon in Iraq and and we didn't care what color you were what party affiliation you had but we just cared about what she stood for so it was really centrist verses arch trump supporter well in many analysts are pointing out that that modern approach Macready resembled what the Democrats who won and Republican leaning districts in the twenty eighteen mid terms did and so that there's a lesson there for Democrats as well as that you know that might be the approach in areas like yours but we're reminded the election was called after claims of ballot tampering in this district in twenty eighteen ballot tampering on the part of the Republican operative people you know really seem to be clamoring for an honest election they saw some light perhaps for Democrats but was a big turnout no to the turnout was low and that again that's not a surprise either I mean we're not only talking about an off year election we were just talking about an oddly calendar election this was a special election to make up for that ballots him bring scandal you mentioned and so it was a Tuesday in September people aren't used to that and then you gotta remember there was an early voting period that was disrupted by hurricane Dorian. the storm is certainly affected another congressional district the third will be there was a special election to fill the seat vacated by the death of a long time Republican congressman but in the ninth there were also districts of precincts that were affected now the state board of elections extended hours to make up for the suspension of because of the storm but still people don't always check the notices stories no to come back and so that may have affected the overall turnout it was low to begin with but probably in the end it did make a huge difference rusty Jacobs politics reporter for W.

"It's here and now more than three months after the midterms North Carolina's ninth congressional district. Still doesn't have representation you'll remember the Republican Mark Harris appeared to beat the democratic candidate, Dan McCreevy by just over nine hundred votes. But allegations that are Republican supporter filled out mail in ballots for voters prompted the state board of elections to launch an investigation that board is meeting right now to hear evidence of this alleged ballot tampering and to decide whether to trigger a whole new election. Rusty Jacobs is politics reporter for WNYC. He stepped out of that hearing with his phone and rusty the Republican Mark Harris as you will know when sixty one percent of male invalid votes in blading county, North Carolina despite only nineteen percent of those voters being registered Republican suspicious. Yes. But what's the evidence? Evidence. The board is the executive director overseeing the investigation that's been underway. Since Bill they will show that there was an orchestrated campaign by this operative McRae. Dallas who's here today for this hearing working for the Harris campaign singe workers out harvest collect absolutely about the quest ones. Then to go back out to the people who requested those supposed to get the actual absentee ballots. And then to even in some cases, falsify the information, and we've already heard some, Lisa grit. One time stepdaughter of McRae. Dallas was mother was once married to an it's still is close to him. That she didn't need many cases signed the witness boxes on these apps when she did not actually witness the information being sort of delivered. Those asked me about McRae. Dallas. But that's a violation of state law curious, well, the hearing could go on for as long as three days and North Carolina law gives the elections board the power to trigger a new election if they find that irregularities improprieties have occurred. We we've heard some allegations. They also could say that, you know, the Republican Mark Harris with nine hundred votes despite the alleged Barrett. Ballot tampering is the winner. So what will happen e what's your sense of what will happen? Well, this is the last thing you said, but that's exactly what Republican party members Republican party officials are saying look even if there's some wrongdoing here, it has to be about nine hundred and five votes or more that were bought by. It has. That's the precise number that could actually was the outcome on the other hand the law and Democrats say, no what you needed a coat of wrongly enough undermine the reliability or the competence of of you know, of one in particular. The whether the precise number. That's the debate. That's going to be for the board to decide the the board could end up in a deadlock will in other words, five number board three Democrats to public Democrats decided no we are not. So the buying more. House. Republicans say we would certify, but you need a super majority Republicans doing the other Democrats Kaufman the election. So we could be a deadlock no certification, but notable exceptions. House has. Jumping year and take over the investigation and decide on their own whether it's well, and it's a democratic critically controlled house of representatives now, which might refuse also deceit.

Meanwhile, the voters in North Carolina's ninth district weight and they've been without representation in congress rusty Jacobs WNYC political reporter stepping out of that hearing of elections board there in North Carolina that to tell us what's going on rusty.

"I will tell you that governor were Cooper is standing by his or his staff's legal analysis that what should happen is the law should revert to a twenty fifteen law that predates the unconstitutional law. That says there will be a five member board made up of appointees by the governor. He is trying to get that in place in time for this January eleventh elect January eleventh hearing, right, but if there is a new election state law requires that there has to be a new primary as well. So is it possible that Republicans could decide replace Mark Harris with an entirely new candidate? It's certainly possible. And there are people out there who will say that report state Republicans have determined that Mark Harris, whether he did no or not is just too toxic that being said, a high profile Republicans Robert pittenger, the current incumbent who who lost the primary Tamar Carris this go round says. He will not run. Again. Pat, Mkhori former governor has his own talk radio program in Charlotte says he will not run again. I tell you a new one you said rusty a few seconds ago not to get too convoluted. I'm sure a lot of listeners yelled out too late because this is so complicated. It doesn't change the balance in the house because the Democrats, you know, have taken over the leadership what's doing people there in the ninth district as you see there's a cloud of uncertainty as thick as p soup. I mean, really for the people who live in that district. Everybody in that district and people outside the district. You're saying look this has been going on for years. One of the interesting things to come out of this investigation is that the the state elections board staff the executive director in two thousand seventeen reached out to the US attorney's office the eastern district saying we've heard about improprieties in bladen county, just where all this is supposedly taking place in the two thousand sixteen you think it should be looked into. Nobody did anything about it. So a lot of people are saying these are problems they should have been solved a long time ago. WINCE's rusty Jacobs. Thank you. You're welcome..

"Running for election this fall and, not knowing what areas you might represent that is the challenge facing congressional candidates in North Carolina a panel. Of federal judges ruled yesterday that the state's congressional districts are? Unfairly drawn to favor Republicans the court. Says new maps must be redrawn before this November's election joining us now, to discuss North Carolina's redistricting dynamics is rusty Jacobs he's. A political reporter at member station w. UNC Chapel Hill. Welcome thank you so tell us why, the court said these mats are unconstitutional and need to be redrawn right away, the court says these, maps are, unconstitutional because they violate key constitutional protections for North Carolina voters they are so mangled and. Shaped in such a way to carve out political advantage for. Republicans that they deprive North Carolina voters. Of first amendment and equal protection rights and they need to, be corrected right, away because, you've got. Election day. Right around the Corner absentee ballots. Needs to go out in a few weeks candidates are out there campaigning raising. Money and they also note that North Carolina voters have. Gone six years and three election cycles with unconstitutional maps right these are twenty sixteen maps originally discarded. Because of racial, gerrymandering and then this next set of maps was concluded to be extreme partisan gerrymandering so North Carolina voters in the. Eyes of this court deprived of constitutional representation in congress so. How. Republican lawmakers. Reacting to this decision they're slamming the decision they say it's more political than legal I spoke with. Senator Ralph Pisces he's a member of the state Senate leadership, achieve figuring the drawing of these. Maps and he noted that the opinions author is an Obama appointee none of those candidates have any idea what the district's look like whether they'll be running whether they, will continue to be their party's nominee all that's kind of just been thrown into chaos And you know I. Think you look at it chaos was, the intent so he says chaos by design Democrats though say you reap what you so constitutional hardball becomes, constitution? Snood that what seems to be hard headed Republicans just going. Forward and going for partisan advantage I don't think they are seeing that the. Fruits and that is just more instability more distrust more imbalanced so MAC mccorkell longtime political. Consultant the Democrats saying that Republicans are seeing, the results of them. Trying so hard to preserve their power. Now Republicans hold ten out of. The thirteen house districts in North Carolina so if these lines get redrawn how would, you see that affecting house races this November it's hard to. Say I even before this decision from the court national Democrats see, some of the seats, held by Republicans right now in North Carolina as. In play and they're putting a lot of influence And. A lot of power, behind the democratic candidates and those people will probably still be running there. Is a. Big question though, whether the state will have to. Hold new primaries or. May even hold a general election after the, new year without primaries I mean is it even possible to redraw a estates congressional districts this close to an election nobody knows the court allows for. That possibility it asks the parties to submit arguments by this Friday as to whether, the legislature, should redraw. The maps, the, court also says. They cannot rule out in joining that is preventing these elections from proceeding under the twenty sixteen maps. And, of course the issue could go to the US supreme court but. That court is divided evenly right, now a four four four justices leaning conservative and four? Justices leaning more liberal so the only thing that's clear in this, decision is, a lot of uncertainty how's that for clarity rusty Jacobs is a political reporter at member, station w.
