Already, officials with the Oklahoma State Election Board said 165,598 people have voted through either absentee or early voting, which is almost double the number of early votes cast in the 2014 gubernatorial race.

Officials said 38 percent of voters have already cast their ballots in the Sunshine State, a significant increase over the 2014 midterms.

"For the first time ever statewide, voters can register at the polls on Election Day", Lee said. "This milestone is a testament to the hard work of thousands of election officials all across Georgia who are dedicated to secure, accessible, and fair elections for all". The early voting numbers reached a new high this year with millions still left to mark their ballots.

The ballot for those voting in the city of San Diego is about 4-1/2-feet long, according to Michael Vu, the San Diego County Registrar of Voters.

Provisional ballots - or those that have come under question - will not be available until two weeks after the election, when the procedure for addressing them is completed, Wyckoff said.

The mother of one of the girls killed said she was standing near her daughter when the truck came crashing toward them. They were picking up litter off a western Wisconsin highway Saturday morning when they were hit by the truck.

The polls were jam packed in the final hours of early voting in Kansas.

"The ballot propositions have also created a lot of interest in this election", he said. More than 80 percent of voters in OR and Washington returned their ballots in the 2016 general election; the national turnout rate was about 61 percent.

"As you head to the polls, please be prepared to join the millions of Texans who are eager to cast their votes", Texas Secretary of State Rolando Pablos said in a statement.

"States that offered same-day voter registration at the time the National Voter Registration Act was enacted" in 1993 are exempt, the legislatures group said.

Early voting was more exciting for some than others.

The US Department of Justice announced Monday that it will monitor Tuesday's election by deploying staff to 35 jurisdictions across the country, including Malden and Lowell. He says bring a driver's license or bill with your name and address on it to help speed things along at the voting sites.

As of Monday, 1,636,971 ballots had been returned. Unlike the primaries, the general election is open to all registered voters.

ME residents 18 and older can still register to vote, even on Election Day. All Maine polls will close at 8 p.m.
