    Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel on Tuesday urged members of her party to stop discouraging early voting and vote by mail. “Our voters need to vote early,” McDaniel told Fox News. “I have said this over and over again. There were many in 2020 saying, ‘Don’t vote by mail, don’t vote early.’ And we have to stop that and understand that if Democrats are getting ballots in for a month, we can’t expect to get it all done in one day.” Former President Trump was among the leading voices that questioned the security and validity of early and...

    Fulton County Judge Thomas A. Cox handed a legal victory to Georgia Democrats and Raphael Warnock’s campaign on Friday. The Georgia Secretary of State cannot prohibit counties from voting on the Saturday after Thanksgiving as is currently stated in Georgia election law.The Democrat Party of Georgia sued Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s office to allow early voting on Nov. 26, the only Saturday in the early voting period for the run-off race between incumbent Democrat Senator Warnock and Hershel Walker, his Republican challenger. Georgia election law reforms put into effect by state legislation shortened early voting in a run-off election...

    A legal battle has broken out between the Warnock campaign and the Georgia secretary of state over the early voting dates leading up to the run-off election on December 6. Democrat incumbent Senator Raphael Warnock is in a heated run-off race with Republican Herschel Walker. A problem has arisen with the dates of the early voting period.As I wrote about on Monday, the day after Thanksgiving is an official state holiday. New election integrity reforms passed in Georgia shortened the timeline for run-off races. The run-off must take place four weeks after the general election. In this case, early voting...

    Last May, when Trump endorsed Oz for the Republican Senate nomination over David McCormick, many of the state's loyal conservatives balked. Dave Ball, the Washington County GOP chairman who flipped his county from blue to red in voter registration, said at the time, “What the hell was he thinking?” When Mastriano surged comfortably ahead in the polls for the GOP gubernatorial nomination in the weeks before the May primary, I reported extensively on the Republicans' fears that Mastriano would drag the party down, including its Senate nominee; within days of that story, Trump endorsed Mastriano.

    Early in-person voting is wrapping up today in Nevada with almost 470,000 votes tallied as of Thursday, and trends so far suggest that enthusiasm is lagging among Democratic voters in the Silver State. The Nevada Senate race, with Democratic incumbent Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto and GOP challenger Adam Laxalt, is one of four toss-up races that will determine the balance of power in Congress. The Democrats lead by 1% in early in-person voting so far, or just 5,200 ballots. This could spell trouble for Democrats, according to analysis from The Nevada Independent. In Clark County, Nevada's most Democrat-heavy county, lagging...

    We conservatives have had a love-hate relationship with the polls this election season. I suppose that’s always the case, but the speculation of a red wave has made this year’s polling a bigger area of interest than in other years. However, as the midterm elections draw ever closer, the GOP is seeing some encouraging signs from early voting data. And, while early voting numbers aren’t always the best indicator of how things will really go, the trends we’re seeing this year are encouraging. On Friday night, I attended an event where Erick Erickson talked about the state of play after...

    On Tuesday night, we finally saw Lt. Governor John Fetterman debate GOP candidate Mehmet Oz in Pennsylvania. It was painful to watch. By the end, I felt sorry for Fetterman and was angry at his family for allowing this to happen. How does a wife allow permit this? How badly does she want to be a senator's wife? According to Reuters, Democrats are in massive damage control. Here is a bit of that: "I don’t know anyone, even the most staunch Fetterman supporters, who think that went well last night," a senior Pennsylvania Democrat told Reuters on Wednesday.Yes, that's a...

    Dick Morris Show | 10/23/2022 | self
    Last night I caught Dick Morris' show on Newsmax. In his first segment, Morris stated that Democrat early voting numbers were way ahead of the GOP. Morris acknowledged that many GOP voters intend to wait until election day to vote because they don't trust early voting. Morris opined that this was a mistake because "stuff can happen", a kid can get sick, a severe toothache can result in an emergency visit to the dentist etc. Waiting until the last day to vote, therefore, may not go as intended. Meanwhile, the majority of Dem ballots have already been submitted. Morris stated...

    "You would have elections that everybody could be proud of. Because right now this country is a laughingstock all over the world," former president said in an interview with Just the News. Former President Donald Trump is offering a specific policy prescription for restoring Americans' confidence in elections, saying it is time for states to return to paper ballots and to end no-excuses absentee ballots so that results can be finalized on Election Day and the nation can stop looking like a "laughing stock" to the world. "I call them the fake vote store. That's the mail in ballots. We...

    A draft bill from the Central Election Commission (CEC) would allow absentee voting on referendums across municipal and county lines, but would not allow for voting abroad or online, a source said yesterday. Opposition party members have been calling for the implementation of absentee voting, but the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has opposed it, citing concerns over information security and fraud. Due to such concerns, the commission’s bill — which has been submitted to the Executive Yuan for review — would not contain provisions for voting online or from abroad, the source said, adding that people would have to apply...

    The Federalist ^ | November 3, 2020 | John Daniel Davidson
    Yes, Texas saw record early voter turnout last week. But a majority of those early voters appear to be Republicans. Texas made national headlines last week when news broke that turnout for early voting surpassed total voting turnout in 2016. When early voting ended on Friday, about 9.7 million Texans had voted compared to about 9 million total who voted four years ago. This is a big deal for the Lone Star State, where traditionally voter turnout has been among the lowest in the country. It’s also a big deal for Texas Democrats and mainstream media pundits, who assume that...

    Nevada Nevada is an all-mail state in 2020, but it was not an all-mail ballot state in 2016. A little more than 2/3rds of its votes were cast before Election Day in 2016, so there might be a reasonable comparison to be made. For these statistics, I’m including in my Nevada data a large Clark County mail ballot report that I downloaded on Sunday that is not yet reflected in the state reports, and that Nevada reporter Jon Ralston believes is key to a Biden win.

    @RedEaglePatriotDems do have a huge lead in PA, but less than 1/3 of the expected vote is in and over half of their lead comes from Philly and Allegheny alone. Trump also outperforming the early vote big-time from the recent QU poll, so its another point to consider that he's in good shape.

    On the last day of early voting yesterday, Democrats managed to cast 1K more early votes than Republicans, ending the EV season with a 256K lead over the GOP. The black share of the vote broke a 5 day losing streak and slightly increased from 19.41% to 19.50%. But don't fret these results. Yesterday was the big "Souls to the Polls" day in NC and other states, whereas weekends have been low-turnout, softer turnout days for Rs. Interestingly, both Rs and Ds were out-voted yesterday by "unaffiliated" voters. Republicans did manage to cut 1/5 of a point from the Democrats...
