My drop box is at the Board of Elections, about two miles away. They had a police camera posted next to it. Made me feel quite safe about my ballot.

My country had 6 ballot questions plus two for the state. So I had some research to do. www.VOTE411.org helped out tremendously.

65. Mailed absentee ballot at local post office 10/5/20.

I trust the Post Office more than certain other segments of the federal government at this moment. Do I think my ballot will be counted as cast? There's a reasonably good chance of that because I'm in a blue state. Do I think votes cast in other places will be flipped or "lost"? Probably.

69. I just hand delivered my NC absentee ballot to the County Board of Elections office

which is a 15 minute drive from my apartment. We have to go through hoops to vote absentee here in NC. A witness signature is required on the back of absentee ballots, and there are restrictions for who qualifies as a witness. Living alone, I had someone who works in the apartment building be my witness--and I verified she was registered to vote--before turning in my ballot.

When I arrived at the County Board of Elections office there were several parking places available, but not a lot. There was a security guard outside to check masking. There were blue markings on the floor inside to keep social distancing. There was a guide seated to point me in the right direction. More markings on the floor in the room where ballots were being collected. Another guide. Two people seated behind plexiglass. I walked right up to one of them. No waiting. I was handed a form to fill out--dated, timed, printed name, address, signed name swearing this was my ballot I was returning. Asked if I had a pen to fill out the form (although they had pens available). The person took my ballot and the form and my next step will be to check on-line that the ballot has been accepted without being disqualified for some reason (only showing it was mailed currently).

I had intended to early vote in person four blocks from my apartment but the location where I have voted since moving downtown 2 1/2 years ago was not included on the list of early voting sites. So since my ballot arrived before early voting starts this Thursday, I decided to use the absentee ballot and return it in person.

When I can verify on-line that my ballot has been accepted, I'll come back and update this post.

On edit: 1,300,919 absentee ballots have been requested as of today from the NC Board of Elections. A total of 478,091 absentee ballots have been returned to date.

Updated: my ballot has been confirmed and accepted as of 10/14/2020! Yay!

71. We voted two weeks ago, by dropping our absentee ballot

off at our local library. The clerk at the library is an official election judge. She checked our signatures and made sure we had filed out the ballot envelope correctly. Then, we dropped our ballots into a slot in an official, locked ballot collection bag. Two days later the Minnesota Secretary or State's office website confirmed that our ballots had been accepted and will be counted.

The bags are picked up daily by an official in our county's election office.

Vote Early if You Can! Vote however you can in your state.

Hubby and I got our ballots on Saturday while we were camping. Got home Sunday, filled them out, and I took them to a dropbox within two miles of our house. Colorado will text us when they've received them and when they have been counted. All states should make it so easy.

I have voted in most elections since I turned 18. I am 53 now and have NEVER been so eager to cast a vote in my entire life.

Decided to use the drop-box at city hall, since it was only one block further than the post office and I was going that way in the first place (yes, it's an official one: the county sent a list of official drop boxes in the sample ballot, and another copy with the actual ballot). Now checking my email regularly to make sure it was picked up.

Also used the official ballot drop box for my city. Checked it online a few days letter and ballots were processed and accepted for all three of the voters in my family. This is my son's first general election voting. He turns 18 next Monday. We got to use ranked choice voting on the prez race. First time any state has done that. Also ranked the US house the senate races. First time using ranking in a race with Susan Collins. It was used in Angus King's race a couple years ago. Of course we voted for Biden, Sara Gideon for senate and Jared Golden for house.

97. I voted today

I was going to wait and vote on election day. Circumstances put in doubt if I would be home to vote and I wanted to make sure I voted. The wait was 1 hour and the line never let up. social distancing and masks were a requirement inside. I only saw 4 people not wearing a mask while waiting in line.

For school board, I googled all the names to help me decide, as it is non-partisan. There was one candidate that I told family and friends to not vote for, I'll call her the mean girl. She has won conservative awards and stuff. Articles about her try to spin that she is doing a great service being on the board, when in fact all she does is deride other board members and cause problems. She claims she is the victim. Lo and behold, she comes up and tries to introduce herself, sans mask. I backed right the fuck up and gave her the stink eye.

I turned my head and she made a beeline to the maskholes, skipping the 6 or so African Americans in line behind us. She got right up to them, no social distancing and had a rousing conversation with them. Someone will get Covid before election day. I smiled.

The mood inside was jovial. The poll workers were pleasant, and joking around with the guy that was in front of us, then us. If not for Covidtrump, we could have had a great time while waiting in line. By the time we voted the maskholes were inside the mood was definitely gone.

113. They have been phasing in "satellite elections offices" here in Philly and I voted today

These locations supplement the 2 regular election offices in the city.

Got my mail-in ballot last week, filled it out, and took it over to one of the locations near me this afternoon. These satellite offices also allow people to register to vote, request and get approval for an absentee (regular or "no excuse" ) ballot, and complete/turn in that absentee ballot on the spot. There was a line (socially-distanced) for people doing just that too!

These are not considered "polling places" as there is no "in-person early voting" here in PA. They just process applications for and drop-offs of mail-in (absentee) ballots and register people to vote.
,
There was also someone from the Biden/Harris campaign there who set up shop outside of the location and he had a table full of campaign stuff - those small cardboard signs, buttons, vinyl stickers, and lawn signs (plus a few other things I couldn't catch). Copped a few - and they were FREE. I was to "promise" to "text 3 friends to remind them to vote" as "payment".

143. Voted!!

I live in a blue dot in the midst of our blood-red state, so my vote really doesn't count at all (thanks, Electoral College), but I happily stood in line for 2 hours to cast my vote for Biden/Harris, as well as for my uncontested Democratic Congressman and for our Democratic candidate for Lamar Alexander's seat (which will surely go to the political hack whose campaign signs "proudly" read in large letters, "Endorsed by Trump).

Since I turned 18 in 1984, I have voted in every Presidential election save one, and most all of the other state and local elections. Standing in the "booth" causes me to well up with tears, which I usually try to conceal from the sweet retirees who work the polls and help orient you to the machine. I remember going into the huge booth with the curtain with my mom as a child in the early 70s, and even then being struck by the import-- the weight--of it. That big red lever that recorded the vote did so with a definitive ka-chunk-- a sound that startled and impressed me. My parents assured that, from an early age, my siblings and I understood that this was a duty not to be shirked or ignored or thrown away; both had lived through the war and had seen what it meant to be lax about democracy.

I wish my vote counted; it doesn't in our antiquated, inequitable system.

But I still voted for Joe and Kamala today, and I was enormously proud to do so.

149. I took my ballot straight to the election office

Fuck Trump’s attempts to fuck up the mail service.

I voted Biden and every Democrat on the ballot. In Idaho there are many races that only have a Republican on the ballot, and they receive no vote from me.

150. I voted in persom Thursday

This is a suburb of Memphis. So red that local Dems don't even bother run in races.

There were 15 in line ahead of me. Despite the photo ID check & electronic verification, the line moved quickly & I was out the door in about 10-15 min.

Hand sanitizer inside entry door, distanced waiting line and, wouldn't you know it, ONE of the 2 chwck-in ladies had mask below nose, with a face shield on. REPUKE!

Waiting line remained steady, but moved well.

The great news is that early voting is up 84% in Shelby County, the blue area of Memphis!

It felt SO GREAT to vote against putin's boys & girls! Time for our country to once again be run by adults.

So, after I voted & left, I proceeded to drive to the post office that another person's absentee ballot was addressed to.

I tried GPSing USPS with the 1st 5 digitis of zip code but could not find! So I called election commission & they gave me street address of USPS.

So again, I GPS, but zip is 1 digit off. I called election board again & get the typical "nobody has called about this or asked about it."

Inside, I asked man working tge counter. He said they use a different zip code for PO boxes. (I've never seen this!)

So I shared how I'd GPSd etc in an effort to "lessen the burden on the postal workers."

He looked me dead in the eyes and said, "Yeah, I will definitely be voting in person."

Of course, this elicited the expected, "then why are ypu mailing ballot?" Very suspicious of my actions. Old white malw, odds are, he is a repuke.

I explained that I was mailing for another person.

So 2 in this week for our side!

Note, aside from the races with Dem & repuke candidates, one repuke was unopposed. (Local). I was SO tempted to write in something like "the devil" which would, no doubt, give repukes nightmares. But I didn't for fear of "spoiling" the ballot. No excuses.

No paper trail, either. I used to get a small stub of paper after voting. Inconvenient for repukes I would imagine, as that no longer happens.

I was voter #261. Not sure if that is daily or running tally. I voted on 2nd day of early voting.

156. Had my husband drop it at city hall. It has been accepted and "will be counted".

I get text messages as it goes through each step.

When I asked my husband where he dropped it off, he said "Oh I saw one outside of the church over on xxx street." As I whipped my head around with my eyes threatening to leave their sockets, I saw the look on his face that made me realize he was pulling my leg. He has a very interesting sense of humor.

It took about a half hour and was smooth sailing. This is in metro Atlanta. Huge enthusiasm all over town, with many many opportunities to vote early in person or via absentee ballot.

Just got notified that my ballot was accepted. Which in OH means that the board looked over the envelope and everything was filled out correctly, including the signature.
The board will scan the ballots before the election and the totals will be tallied on election night (so no "red mirage, thank you very much).

179. And USPS worked just fine.

I got the ballot the next day after it was mailed. I mailed it back this week and it's already accepted. I also signed up for notifications on BallotTrax, which means they send you emails (or texts if that's what you want) when your ballot gets accepted.
It's a good idea for everybody to check the status of their ballot, because many states allow voters to "cure" their ballots if some mistake was made.

185. Did my part to turn Texas blue!

My honey and I voted in person today (10/18). I live in a rural, red county, and Trump flags are everywhere. We are allowed to vote in any polling location in the county, so we chose a small-town polling place where voters normally are outnumbered by poll workers during early voting.

Not the case today.

Masks were required, and they had a supply for those who didn't bring one, plus a hand sanitizer dispenser. We all got a disposable plastic glove to use on the touch-screen system. Our voting machines were purchased by the county for the 2018 election cycle and use paper ballots. Both local parties agreed on this selection.

The story goes that Texas isn't as much a red state as it is a non-voting state. Well, turnout across the state is setting records, so I have hope. Beto invigorated Democrats last cycle, and that energy appears to be more than a fluke.

Texas may or may not go blue this cycle, but if nothing else, we will reaffirm the message we sent in 2018: Democrats can and will compete here. Texas is is no longer a lock where the GOP can count on and divert resources elsewhere.

Once we actually do manage to flip Texas, GOP presidential aspirations will evaporate into nothing more than a disgusting residue.

So I survived long enough to get my vote for Democrats in every single race we're in for 2020, and it felt great!

Walked in, dropped it in the box with no issues. Later I heard that another ballot drop box inside a different town hall a short distance away had a couple of trump goons standing outside. That location only has a drop box, no actual voting inside. What did those idiots think they were going to accomplish? Did they think they would intimidate people from dropping off their ballots?

I waited about an hour to vote early this morning. The line was moving pretty well, but somehow I got stuck behind a guy wearing a Trump t-shirt, a mask, and hat. And he wouldn't stop talking about how great Trump was. Needless to say, I'm not buying the "shy Trump voter" stuff.
