The picture changed considerably as a result of Corona’s situation. Voting begins at the booth for the US presidential election on Tuesday. About 100 million voters have already cast their votes. They have already answered calls for early ballot fearing postal ballots and corona. As of Monday, over nine crore 7 lakh advance votes had been cast. This set a new record in the history of the United States.
Fear of corona is common. The number of victims in the United States has already reached one crore. More than two lakh 31 thousand people have died. In this case, there is nothing unusual about taking advantage of the postal ballot or early voting.
In such a situation, this time the US presidential election has decreased in history. Most people will vote on election day, as the long-running image of the US presidential election has changed dramatically. This time a large proportion of voters want to be safe. It is because of this mindset that the image of the vote has changed.
As Trump has previously stated, there is a risk of fraud in the postal ballot. There are rumors that he may go to court if the result is not expected. On Monday, Trump also said that postal ballots in Pennsylvania would take longer to count. The results of the vote cannot be withheld for him. All postal ballots are to be counted in one day.
Whether or not Trump’s demands will be met will be understandable once the count starts. Earlier, it can be said that Corona has brought a lot of changes in people’s lives and thoughts. The polling booth also has a clear shadow of that change.
In 2016, where the total number of votes was 13.85 million, this time only 10 crore votes were cast. In other words, more than two-thirds of the votes have already fallen compared to last time. This trend of early voting has led to the highest turnout in the country in more than a century.
According to the media, such figures of early voting are evidence of the American people’s interest in the election. Especially don’t want to see Trump back in power; Many of them have voted this time; Those who are not usually interested in elections. Source: DW
