    Florida is on pace to set a new record for voting by mail in 2016, as nearly one of every four voters will make their choices at home, weeks before election day. As Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton duel in a handful of states and plan for two more TV debates, Floridians are voting in numbers never before seen in a statewide election. At least 2.6 million ballots are flooding mailboxes this week, a figure that could nearly double by Nov. 8, when total turnout could approach 9 million.

    DALLAS (AP) -- George P. Bush was talking about his future political plans - and how Donald Trump wouldn't reshape them - when two women approached, giddy with excitement. Eighteen months after he was elected Texas land commissioner and a few weeks past his 40th birthday, Bush is quietly continuing his family's legacy. The grandson of one former president and nephew of another, he remains a rising star in America's largest conservative state and is keeping alive the possibility that a political dynasty declared dead by many when his dad flamed out of the presidential race could yet again return...
  • Analysis: Who’s afraid of absentee balloting in Israel?

    The Jerusalem Post ^ | 4/30/2015 | GIL HOFFMAN
    Dozens of countries around the world have allowed their citizens who happen to be abroad on Election Day to vote by absentee for decades. Practically speaking, absentee balloting is more necessary in a country like Israel, where elections are set three months in advance, than in the United States, where Americans know their presidential races will be held every four years in November. So why is absentee balloting for Israelis such a controversial issue, and why have governments promised it for years and never delivered? To answer the first question, it is important to understand the ethos of Israeli society....

Volunteers from campaigns frequently stop by Word of Faith Pentecostal Church on the southwest side of Cedar Rapids. It’s a predominantly black church where sounds of worship bellow through the building Sunday morning. "We don't tell people who to vote for, but...
