Polls close in Beaufort County

At 7 p.m., polling places officially closed in Beaufort County and across South Carolina. That doesn’t necessarily mean voting is finished though, as anyone in line at 7 p.m. will be allowed to vote.

When the polls do finally shut down, each team of election workers will run a tabulation of the results and post them on the outside door of the polling place. Then, the precinct manager will drive the results, stored in a sealed container, to the county’s election headquarters.

There is no set time when results will be displayed. The S.C. Election Commission reports results online here.

GOP backs Trump as he fights election results, transition

The Trump administration threw the presidential transition into tumult, with President Donald Trump blocking government officials from cooperating with President-elect Joe Biden’s team and Attorney General William Barr authorizing the Justice Department to probe unsubstantiated allegations of voter fraud.

Some Republicans, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, rallied behind Trump’s efforts to fight the election results. Few in the GOP acknowledged Biden’s victory or condemned Trump’s other concerning move on Monday: his firing of Defense Secretary Mark Esper.

The developments cast doubt on whether the nation would witness the same kind of smooth transition of power that has long anchored its democracy. The Electoral College is slated to formally confirm Biden’s victory on Dec. 14 and the Democrat will be sworn into office in late January.

On Monday, Barr authorized

Election overload? Fun ways to escape politics at home | Tech Talk & Innovation

(BPT) – The election season is a lot to handle no matter where you land on the political spectrum. It can be draining on many levels, which is why now is the perfect time to escape the political drama and make up your own political fun at home.

Idea 1: Embrace the household monarchy

Forget democratic decisions at home! Do your kids and roommates really deserve an equal vote anyway? Have fun and announce the start of the household monarchy, in which you will rule as king or queen.

For example, wondering what to have for dinner? No need to argue, your decision is what counts. Will it be pizza, spaghetti or that new recipe? Disagreements on music are instantly cast aside when the king and queen decide. Will ears delight to country, pop or alternative? From what movie to watch to who is stuck folding the socks, the monarchy

ELECTION: Voters overwhelmingly vote for Prop 1

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) — Proposal one passed with 92% of precincts reporting and 84.3% of people voting for the proposal, which alters how revenue in the state’s park-related funds are spent.

Proposal 1 would require that at least 20% of the state park’s endowment fund spending be spent on park improvements, like upgrading and renovating facilities.

Proposal 1 would also require that at least 25% of the trust fund’s annual spending go toward parks and recreation areas and at least 25% toward land conservation.

As of 2020, the funds received revenue from mineral, oil and gas leases and royalties.

Conan Smith of the Michigan Environemtnal Council said the proposal would enhance safety.

“All summer Michiganders turned to their local parks, trails and outdoor spaces to commune and connect safely. That connection does not need to end with the cold weather,” Smith said.

Many environmental activists have backed Proposal 1, including

Thinking about moving to Canada after the election? COVID-19 could affect your plans

Researching residency requirements for other countries and threatening to move to Canada when the presidential election doesn’t go your way is becoming a quadrennial tradition.

Due to an unprecedented number of mail-in ballots and early votes cast, the 2020 election for president hasn’t been called yet and may not be settled for days. So that’s giving nervous voters a little extra time to daydream about becoming an expatriate.

Most voters don’t follow through on the old “If my candidate loses, I’m moving to Canada” threat, but if they’re serious about it now, the COVID-19 pandemic may throw a wrench in their plans.

Right now, simply visiting Canada is difficult. The pandemic has resulted in a nearly eight-month closure of the U.S.-Canada land border, and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has said that won’t change until America gets its COVID-19 infection rate under control.  

“Until further notice, most foreign nationals cannot travel

Denver Election Results 2020 Update

If President Donald Trump wins another four years in office, don’t blame Denver. Voters in the Mile High City preferred Joe Biden by an enormous margin — and they also voted for numerous progressive ballot measures, including new taxes earmarked to address climate concerns and the homelessness crisis.

The latest results from Denver’s Election Division were updated at 11:30 p.m. on November 3, and while they’re not yet official, none of the contests can be classified as a nail-biter right now. The smallest margin on a ballot measure is currently in the 10 percent range.

When it came to the presidency, Denver dwellers showed clear partiality: Biden and running mate Kamala Harris collected more than 82 percent of the vote, to just over 15 percent for Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. Likewise, former Denver mayor (and Colorado governor) John Hickenlooper owes much of his sizable victory over incumbent Cory
