More Than 3 Million NYC Voters Cast Ballots In 2020 Election, With A Record-Breaking 22% Relying On Absentee Ballots

The New York City Board of Elections officially certified the results of the November general election on Tuesday with more than 3 million votes counted in the race for president and vice president, expanding the margin of victory by four points for Joseph Biden and Kamala Harris from the unofficial results on Election Day. 

While more ballots were cast this year than in the last two presidential contests, when voters and election officials had no public health emergency to contend with, the percent of turnout remained roughly the same at 55% of registered voters. 

The final tally included votes cast during early voting and in-person on Election Day, as well as a record-breaking 662,314 absentee ballots, made more readily available because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. While absentee ballots accounted for just 4% of the total vote four years ago, this year they made up nearly a quarter of all

Record numbers of ballots cast in Washington but failed candidate questions results

OLYMPIA – Washington certified its 2020 election Tuesday with some 750,000  more ballots cast and counted than ever before, and a turnout just a shade under the record set in 2008.

Some 4.1 million residents cast a ballot, for a turnout by registered voters of 84.14%. Twelve years ago, the turnout was 84.6%, although less than 3.1 million residents voted. The state population and its voter rolls have grown that much in just over a decade.

Despite a pandemic, the first presidential election, with same-day voter registration and cyber security experts warning of possible hacking, the election ran relatively smoothly in the state’s 39 counties, Secretary of State Kim Wyman said. 

“It’s a proud moment for Washington,” she said.

Failed Republican gubernatorial candidate Loren Culp and his campaign have raised allegations of corruption on social media platforms, questioning if the ballots of people who died before the election were marked

President Donald Trump listens to administration officials in the Brady Press Briefing Room at the White House in Washington, D.C., November 20, 2020.

The campaign makes several claims of election officials intentionally breaking the law, resulting in illegal votes being cast and counted. According to the lawsuit, Wisconsin Election Commission officials as well as the city clerks of Milwaukee and Madison “willfully disregarded the current statute and made conscious efforts to circumvent Wisconsin election law,” causing a substantial number of votes to be counted that were cast “well outside of the bounds of Wisconsin law.”

One such instance involves election officials accepting ballots without the required absentee ballot request forms on file, as

Discover The Las Vegas ‘Extravaganza’ With A Cast And Crew As Big As Its Audience

“The show must go on,” says Hanoch Rosènn, the creator and director of EXTRAVAGANZA – The Vegas Spectacular, a critically-acclaimed production at the Jubilee Theater inside Bally’s Las Vegas. This is a sentiment Rosènn doesn’t take lightly.

EXTRAVAGANZA – The Vegas Spectacular had its first (and only) preview performance on March 14, 2020, but it had to close the following day because of the pandemic. It returned to the stage on Monday, November 23, 2020, only to find out that its already socially distanced audience that was capped at 250 would be reduced to 50 for each performance because of greater precautions during the pandemic.

This means a first for a Vegas show: EXTRAVAGANZA will have a cast and crew that is the size of its audience. With a cast and crew of 50, they will be performing for an audience of

In his first one-on-one interview since losing to Biden, Trump baselessly cast more conspiracy theories

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump said Sunday that the FBI and the Justice Department might be “involved” in what he again groundlessly called a fraudulent presidential election, hinting that the nation’s law enforcement agencies were biased against his fading efforts to remain in office.

“This is total fraud. And how the FBI and Department of Justice — I don’t know, maybe they’re involved — but how people are allowed to get away with this stuff is unbelievable. This election was a total fraud,” Trump said in an interview with Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo.

“Missing in action. Can’t tell you where they are,” Trump said, a note of resignation in his voice. “I ask, ‘Are they looking at it?’ Everyone says, ‘Yes, they’re looking at it.’

“These people have been there a long time,” he added. “Some of them have served a lot of different presidents.”

The Elector: Precious McKesson will cast Nebraska’s 2nd District electoral vote for Biden | Politics & Government

The exception was in 2008, when then-Sen. Barack Obama, with Biden as his running mate, won a single Electoral College vote in the 2nd District, the “blue dot” Biden reclaimed in 2020.

Biden told The World-Herald in January that he planned to compete for the Omaha area’s electoral vote if he won the nomination and that he hoped to repeat one of his former boss’s favorite victories.

The Nebraska Democratic Party embraced the symbolism, asking local artists Justin Kemerling and Matt Carlson to design a poster of McKesson as “The Elector,” modeled after Obama’s “HOPE” poster from 2008.

State party chair Jane Kleeb said McKesson earned the job of representing the 2nd District as its elector through her work, from registering voters to staging events to handing out signs.

“In politics, we use the word historic almost too much,” Kleeb said. “This is a moment for not only the African-American

Inside the fascinating lives of the young Harry Potter cast

They were the trainee wizards that had us spellbound in the Harry Potter films – but where did they get to when Hogwarts closed its doors?

Earlier this month new dad Rupert Grint – who starred as Ron Weasley – shared a picture of his daughter Wednesday, five months, and joined Instagram, immediately racking up 1 million followers.

While Rupert and co-stars Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) have gone on to stellar careers in stage and screen, some of their classmates have taken different paths.

Almost two decades since the first movie Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone broke box office records by grossing £763 million ($A1.4 billion) worldwide, the child stars have gone on to become a bodybuilder, a Playboy model and a cage fighter.

One also found himself on the wrong side of the law – even before the eight-film franchise was over.

As courts deny Trump election challenges, president says Biden must prove votes were cast legally

One day after President Donald Trump said he would leave the White House on January 20 barring a massive revolt from Electoral College voters, Trump walked back his statement on Friday.

In a tweet, Trump says that President-elect Joe Biden will only be allowed in the White House if he can prove that he had 80 million votes. In America, voters cast private ballots. Once a vote is tabulated, it is no longer traced to the voter. Lawmakers put in measures such as secret ballots in the late 1800s amid an era of voter intimidation. Non-secret ballots are generally a violation of international law.

“Biden can only enter the White House as President if he can prove that his ridiculous ‘80,000,000 votes’ were not fraudulently or illegally obtained,” Trump tweeted. “When you see what happened in Detroit, Atlanta, Philadelphia & Milwaukee, massive voter fraud, he’s got a big unsolvable problem!”
