The presidential elections are huge news internationally every four years. Today are the midterm elections. Midterm elections come nearly two years into a president’s term and can have just as big an impact on the direction of the country.

Much of the attention of midterm elections is focused on the two chambers of Congress: the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives.

Members of the House are elected for two-year terms, so all 435 seats are decided during the midterm elections.

Sorting mail and counting ballots can be a logistical nightmare.  Here is why:

-        12 states count ballots as they come in.

-        11 states have a buffer period ahead of the election of over two weeks.

-        17 states begin counting less than two weeks before the election.

-        Six states, including Pennsylvania, do not begin counting until Election Day.

To sum it up quickly, in most states election officials began processing that surge of ballots in the weeks before Election…

Americans are gearing up for the largest vote-by-mail election in American history.  Voting by mail can trace its roots “to soldiers voting far from home during the Civil War and World War II. By the late 1800s, some states were extending absentee ballots to civilian voters under certain conditions.”

For once, there is a new use for technology that might build confidence in our democracy, rather than tear it down. Want to make sure your ballot counts?…
