    It took 7 days, but Republicans finally cast more early votes (2,000) yesterday than Democrats. That, my friends, is excellent news. The current early vote (mail-ins + in-person) numbers are: Democrats= 1,038,752 (42.62%) Republicans= 691,174 (28.36%) Dem Lead: 347,578 Again, in 2016 when Trump won NC by 3.8 percentage points, at the end of early voting, the Democrats had a lead of 310,000 votes. The Republicans cut 4 points off of the Democrats lead yesterday, and are likely favored to win most (if not every) of the remaining early voting days. (continued below)

    North Carolina's mail-in ballot acceptance deadline can be pushed back, a U.S. Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday night, but opponents of a deadline extension could try to take their fight to the Supreme Court. “All ballots must still be mailed on or before Election Day,” the ruling states, according to the News & Observer. “The change is simply an extension from three to nine days after Election Day for a timely ballot to be received and counted."

    At the beginning of NC early voting, Democrats were leading Republicans in returned mail ballots by roughly a 54% to 16% spread. That spread has now been reduced to 43.70% to 27.48% after 6 days of early, in-person voting (note: the Democrats have out-voted Republicans on all 6 days of in-person voting, but each day Republicans have cut the Democrats' raw vote margin). On the first day of early, in-person voting, Democrats cast approximately 75K more ballots than Republicans. Yesterday, Democrats cast 3K more ballots than Rs, which means that tomorrow Republicans will very likely win the "raw vote" in...
  • Court lets North Carolina keep absentee deadline extension

    10/21/2020 12:57:29 AM PDT · by Freedom'sWorthIt · 61 replies ^ | 10/20/20 | Jonathan Drew, AP
    North Carolina can accept absentee ballots that are postmarked by Election Day for more than a week afterward, a federal appeals court ruled Tuesday. The 4th Circuit Court of Appeals declined to block an extension for accepting the ballots that was announced in late September. The State Board of Elections decided then that absentee ballots could be accepted until Nov. 12 as long as they were mailed by Election Day, lengthening the timeframe from three to nine days. The change was made as part of a legal settlement with voting rights advocates.

    North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper appeared to call Senate candidate Cal Cunningham's scandal "frustrating," but predicted his campaign would "get across the line" during a conversation with Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden that was caught on a hot mic on Monday. "Thanks for coming out, you didn't have to do this," Biden told Cooper, a Democrat. News of Cunningham's inappropriate behavior emerged in early October, when conservative website National File published texts between Cunningham and California woman Arlene Guzman Todd that were sexual in nature. His campaign confirmed the texts earlier this month. Since then, Cunningham's campaign has tried to...

    Joe Biden is still refusing to discuss an exposé by the New York Post alleging the former vice president’s youngest son, Hunter, leveraged his ties to the Obama administration for the benefit of a Ukrainian natural gas conglomerate. The Democrat nominee, who has long struggled to explain his son’s overseas business deals, was asked about the story during a campaign swing through North Carolina on Sunday. Biden, in particular, was asked by a reporter if he had any comment about revelations that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) had seized Hunter’s laptop last year via subpoena. Video of Biden’s encounter,...

    Early voting data is showing positive signs for President Donald Trump and some troubling signs for Joe Biden.Start off with the basic principle that there is expected to be more early, mail-in voting with Democrats, and more in-person, Election Day voting with Republicans voting for Trump. So, one should expect the numbers of the early voting to weigh heavily in favor of the Democrats. Now, some states are tracking along like that.But in some of the key states, turns out that isn’t the case, as NBC notes in their tracking of the early vote citing Target Smart. In Texas, which...

    Cal Cunningham is now the first North Carolina Democrat Senate candidate in 22 years not to receive the Charlotte Observer’s endorsement. The Charlotte Observer and the Raleigh News & Observer on Saturday declined to endorse Cunningham. This makes Cunningham the first North Carolina Democrat Senate candidate to not receive an endorsement from the Charlotte Observer since John Edwards in 1998. In a joint editorial, both outlets wrote that they planned on endorsing Cunningham; however, his lack of transparency and refusal to answer questions from the North Carolina press led the papers to reconsider. The papers wrote: His [Cunningham’s] lack of...

    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | October 16, 2020 | Collin Anderson
    North Carolina Democrat Cal Cunningham's family business repeatedly ranked among the state's top polluters. The candidate now presents himself as an environmental champion in his bid to unseat Republican senator Thom Tillis (N.C.). Cunningham was a shareholder in the now-defunct Cunningham Brick Company as recently as 2015, court documents obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show. According to emissions reports filed with the North Carolina Department of Environmental and Natural Resources, the company released at least 1,700 tons of carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide, sulfur dioxide, and other harmful substances between 1993 and 2011, making it a major polluter in the...

    On Thursday morning, I finished hiking by 11:00 am. Knowing that I was only about a 15-minute drive time from my voting precinct, on the campus at NC State University. I thought, "Okay, it’s the first day of early voting. Still, if I arrive before noon, all should be fine. I arrived at 11:18 am, dutifully parked, walked about 80 hundred yards, and saw a line of considerable length. And the people in line, mostly young, seemed enthusiastic. I was told that the wait time was 90 minutes. No way I'm standing in a 90-minute line, especially with 16 more...

  • Judge says absentee ballots in North Carolina must have witness signatures

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A federal judge on Wednesday ruled that absentee ballots in the presidential battleground state of North Carolina must have a witness signature, a boost for Republican groups seeking to enforce stricter rules on mail-in voting. U.S. District Judge William Osteen in Greensboro issued an injunction essentially barring voters from being able to “fix” an absentee ballot they had already sent in if it lacked a third-party signature attesting that the voter, and not somebody else, signed the ballot. The judge was reversing a previous directive by state officials that had allowed voters to remedy the lack...
