"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.

"I introduced by I deal, create a district court midland, and basically were like. Republicans showman introduced bills. You know 'cause there were so few of us. So actually, let's go back in history for just a minute here. What happened in Texas that originally gave Republicans this lock on power that you've described today Yeah. So like this isn't unique to Texas, but there was a big shift that happened in politics around that time especially after LBJ's administration, there was like a generational resorting politics and that definitely changed politics in places like Texas and the South and you know Republicans I won the governorship and then you know years after that it was the Senate and then it Wasn't until the early two thousand and two that Republicans to take over the Texas House and have a lock on all three but it just happened over time you know new strategies the Republicans started spending a lot of money and targeting rural parts, the state, and I mean, that's still a big stronghold for them. So it just it happens slowly over time. But. Then in two thousand, eighteen, just two years ago the Beto Rourke the Democrat did a lot better than people thought he would, and that Senate race particularly in a handful of Republican districts Andrew Regan with Texas. House. Democratic campaign told you It's hard to really get your finger on the rapid change that's happening in these districts because it's both younger more diverse. And it's war college educated than the country. As a whole we've seen the college educated voters specifically have been repelled by both trump and the Republican party initially kind of hinted at this already. But was that Senate race two years ago kind of a prelude to what we're talking about now in this election. Totally, and if nothing else it was a trial balloon, it was a way to like for the. Democrats to see where is it that we have voters now in places where Republicans have been winning elections and specifically, there are nine districts that better work one that Republicans won the Statehouse, and these are places where Democrats are kind of bullish. Like there are people willing to vote for a majority of Democrats are willing to vote for a Democrat. They're now Republicans would say this is because of Beto Beto is a unique thing that happened in Texas Politics but Democrats No. This is about changing demographics. This is about something larger than better over Oregon. So that's why that election to. With something really interesting will in fact, here's Republican. Political Consultant Lucia sues talking about just that Republicans are going to hold onto the house because Texans do not want to move our state in the direction of the socialist policies that the Democrat Party has a stab as their platform moving forward. So yes, Texas has been a traditionally red state, but let's just say that Luke Messiahs is wrong in the Democrats do when the house, how does that change politics in the state of Texas? Likely just if Democrats the house, just likely fewer things will happen. You know I guess on the. Negative side of that, there would just be a discussion of things that may be Republicans haven't wanted to talk about before you know Texas is one of the few states in the country that hasn't expanded Medicaid for example, and then of course, the big thing is redistricting because at twenty twenty one is a redistricting year. So Texas has already seen pretty big turnout in early voting already this year before Election Day what does that offer any clues what might happen? No I never you know it is like historically like early voting doesn't tell you much about outcomes. I mean, if you were to just look at early voting. In two, thousand, eighteen, you would have thought that work was going to win but election day votes are so massive that I it just you never know what's going to happen especially during a pandemic but historically speaking like early voting doesn't tell you enough. It does show however that Democrats are energized and mobilized than they've been in a long time and I. Think you could have told people could have told you that before people started heading to the polls for early voting. Well. We're GONNA find out soon. Aren't we? Lopez reporter for K. UT in Austin they you so much. Thank you. Let's go Granville. County. In North Carolina, a swing county in a swing state that could be crucial to the winner of the Presidential Race Granville County outside the city of Durham went for Barack Obama in two thousand twelve and then flipped to president trump for years ago North Carolina public radio's Rusty Jacobs has been to Granville County several times to speak with voters and he has her story.

"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.

"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.

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.

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.

"And now as new lawmakers are sworn into congress tomorrow the seat representing North Carolina's ninth district will be empty because of evidence of vote tampering scheme in the midterm race for that seat. Democrats are taking over the leadership in the house and say they won't seat the Republican candidate Mark Harris who got nine hundred more votes than his democratic opponent, Dan, McCreevy because of the scandal over how some of those votes were collected. Meanwhile, the state election board charged with investigating the scandal has been ordered by a panel of judges to dissolve because of a case having nothing to do with the scandal. Few rusty Jacobs politics reporter for WNYC is in Chapel Hill, high rusty. Hi, Robyn, and we've talked about this scandal allegations from voters that nice lady came to their house and said she'd fill out their absentee ballots that lady is the stepdaughter of Leslie McRae. Dallas a political contractor working for Harris, the Republican do we know how far the board got in the investigation did. Candidate harris. No, for instance. Well, congressman candidate Mark Harris says he didn't know there were any improprieties. He has said that he did. In fact, higher Dallas that he was steered towards Dallas by state and county Republicans who claimed that Dallas was very effective at getting in harvesting Republican or I should say harvesting absentee ballots in helping with that effort Harris lost a primary in two thousand sixteen to a candidate who got most of the absentee ballots in bladen county in his favor working with McRae, Dallas. So he he knew that the Dallas was effective at helping with absentee ballots. He says he did not know that he was engaged in any kind of impropriety side. And so this board that had been investigating. I'm presuming we don't know what conclusions. They met may have come to write. And now they've been ordered to dissolve because of another case, correct. So without without making this too convoluted back in two thousand. Sixteen just before democrat governor ROY Cooper took office. The Republican controlled legislature rewrote, the law governing the ethics board and the elections board. And they rewrote it to that. They had more power on appointing members to that board governor Cooper challenge that in court last October, a three judge panel in Wake County determined that the makeup of the board was in fact, unconstitutional and would have to be dissolved. They they stayed that ruling giving the board time to complete its investigation after the board delayed the hearing that we're expecting on January eleventh about the improprieties in the congressional district. The ninth congressional district. They decided that it was time to dissolve the board. We are now without aboard. We are not without a staff though, investigators legal counsel who are still continuing to look into possible improprieties. But are we without hearing? Because as you said it was scheduled for the eleventh, all I can tell you is the spokesman for the North Carolina. The state elections board has said that the staff continues. To work as if there will be hearing on the eleventh. But certainly there cannot be determination. Whether there is enough evidence to warrant new election without aboard in place. I will tell you the governor 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 Aletsch January eleventh hearing, right, but if there is a new election state law requires it there has to be a new primary as well. So is it possible that Republicans could decide to replace Mark Harris with an entirely new candidate? It's certainly possible. And and there are people out there who will say that state Republicans have determined that Mark Harris, whether he did no we're not. It's just too toxic. That being said a high profile Republicans Robert pittenger, the current incumbent who who lost the primary to Mark Harris. 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 when 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. Oh, what's it doing the people there in the ninth district as you? Is a cloud of uncertainty as as pea soup. I'm really fit for the people 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 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 Laden county. Just we're all this is supposedly taking place in the two thousand sixteen electric 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. WNYC's rusty Jacobs. Thank you. You're welcome. You. There are those who love music.
