Porto Rico is part of the United Stated and has been for over 100 years. Saying “Go English Only” denies that reality.Voted today in person here in Polk Co. Central Florida. It looked like Walmart/Winn Dixie at the first of the month when the EBT cards are recharged. Hopefully this was only a demographic surge pertinent to the first day of early voting. I presume those with jobs will need to bide their time. No, I don't work - retired.
I voiced my opinion to the poll workers how the ballots were also printed in Spanish. They too were not on board with it however are powerless to do anything. My congressional district was created i.e. gerrymandered during the last redistricting to accommodate that ethnic grouping.
Before the haters dive in.....I'm not anti Spanish speakers........half my family lives in Colombia S.A.. Get in line, file the paperwork and do it like our ancestors did.
Thanks for the info. I take it this applies to absentee ballots only?Votes can be rescinded in Michigan. The following is from the Secretary of State website:
If a voter has already voted absentee and wishes to change their vote (because the candidate has dropped out of the race, or for any other reason), a voter can spoil their ballot by submitting a written request to their city or township clerk.
- The voter must sign the request and state if they would like a new absentee ballot mailed to them or if they will pick it up in person at the clerk’s office.
- This request must be received by 5 p.m. the Friday before the election if received by mail. An absentee ballot that has been returned to the clerk may be spoiled in person at the clerk’s office until 10 a.m. the Monday prior to the election. An absentee ballot that has not been returned to the clerk may be spoiled in person at the clerk’s office until 4 p.m. the Monday prior to the election.
- If a voter has not returned his or her ballot, the voter can surrender the ballot or sign a statement stating that the ballot was lost or destroyed and vote at the polls. There is no option on Election Day to spoil an absentee ballot that has been received by the clerk.
The big thing for a lot of people is Covid and the precautions taken. When I voted in 2018, there was a large line that filled the building. No big deal. Add 6ft between them and you're down the block. This time of year, I don't know what the weather will be and rather just avoid that and Stamford in line with random people.
I cant speak for others, but I am usually on remote job sites on Election Day, so I always take advantage of early voting.
How are "they" going to steal your vote? I have early voted the last couple of elections and it works just like it does on the official day.I'm going on election day, because I don't want anybody stealing my vote. I don't care if I have to stand in line for hours.
