Polls Open for Election Day

NY is also one of only 13 states that do not offer early voting, instead forcing voters to cast ballots on Election Day in spite of it not being a federal holiday.

A volunteer at the polling station at Atherton High School said there appeared to be more voters than in past midterm elections.

Minneapolis estimates almost 70,000 voters have cast their ballots as of noon. The Board of Elections say polling places will be staffed at levels similar to a presidential election year but voters are urged to go the polls in the mid-morning or mid-afternoon if possible. If you are a registered voter, your name should appear on the voter rolls at the precinct where you vote. In person voting ends November 3.

"The first thing to do is call Election Protection and they'll tell you what to do", Kat Calvin, founder of Spread the Vote, told The Times.

While you can still technically register to vote online on the Secretary of State's website, that is no longer recommended.

Early voting season ended Saturday in West Virginia, with Northern Panhandle counties posting strong turnout numbers.

Ramsey County elections manager Joe Mansky says turnout also is good in his metro county. The lack of a centralized national system could make it more hard for hackers to achieve a widespread attack. Just on Monday, she said absentee voter turnout was heavy - an estimated 1,200 to 1,500 ballots were cast.

If you do not have a valid ID, or if you're not in the voting system, do not leave the polling place.

"They just need to go to the polls with two forms of identification that show who you are and where you live, such as a driver license plus a utility bill or bank statement", Lee said.

He did add that, because the law requires that everyone in line at 7:30 p.m.be given the chance to vote, some precincts were open till close to 8 p.m.

If you get a provisional ballot, here's what will happen, according to the state legislatures conference.

Council Speaker Corey Johnson blasted the chaos at polling stations in New York City on Tuesday, as lines to vote stretched across blocks and avenues, and poll workers at some locations reportedly encouraged voters to "come back later".
