Should We Be Able To Vote Online?
It is 2018, but voting hasn’t changed much over the years.
You still have to take time out of your day, figure out childcare, drive to a church or school and stand in line.
There has to be a better way, right?
Both North and South Carolina are among the states that currently have some form of online voting.
Service members and select citizens living overseas can log on to the internet or email their vote.
According to a new poll, less than a third of millennials planned to vote in Tuesday’s midterm election.
But a 2015 poll found that nearly half of voters between 18 and 34 would be more likely to vote if they could do it online.
Problems At The Polls:
A national hotline for problems at the polls got more than 24,000 calls before 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday.
Here in North Carolina, the weather may be to blame for voting issues in Wake County.
State election officials say ballots in some precincts couldn’t be fed through tabulators because of high humidity.
Meanwhile, voters at several sites in Georgia reported broken machines.
One location didn’t have power cords and made voters wait for hours when the machine’s batteries died.
