Voting By Mail? Here Are the Deadlines in Every U.S. State

  Voting By Mail? Here Are the Deadlines in Every U.S. State Voting By Mail? Here Are the Deadlines in Every U.S. StateBefore the pandemic, five states—Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon, Washington and Utah—already held all-mail elections, meaning every active registered voter automatically received a ballot in the mail that would allow them to bypass a physical polling place. Due to COVID-19, several more states, including California and New Jersey, are adopting this model for the 2020 election. Twenty-nine states and Washington D.C. already allowed for “no excuse” mail-in absentee ballots, meaning voters can request a mail-in ballot without having to meet certain qualifications.

CNN obtained video from the Pullman Police Department that shows more than a dozen people, who did not wear masks, were in attendance at the gathering.

In the video, the officer tells Ethridge someone called about the group of people in front of the home and lack of social distancing in place. The officer says, "We're taking an education approach the best way we can. Unfortunately, our directive is to write tickets to those who aren't abiding by that because there's been a massive public outcry."

  Is 8 enough? Court vacancy could roil possible election case WASHINGTON (AP) — Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death has left the Supreme Court shorthanded during a polarizing presidential campaign in which President Donald Trump has already suggested he may not accept the outcome and the court could be called on to step in and decide the fate of the nation. It's the second time in four years that a justice has died during an election year, though that eight-justice court was not asked to referee any election disputes in 2016. Today, both sides have armies of lawyers ready to take the outcome to court.

The officer goes on to ask whether people at the party can wear masks before encouraging them to hold gatherings inside of the home or in the backyard.

"I'm going to give you the same advice I give everybody else. We're pretty much between a rock and hard place when it comes to the community and stuff like that. Really, the key is out of sight, out of mind. So, backyard or in the house would definitely be better," the officer is heard saying.

Jenkins says his department conducted random checks of body-worn camera video to check enforcement efforts and he knows of at least one other event in which an officer gave similar advice.

"After I saw this video, I sent out communication to my staff to make it clear that our messaging is to be that our goal is to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our community, and that we are doing that through trying to achieve compliance with the proclamation requirements of the state and through our nuisance party ordinance," Jenkins said.

No disciplinary action was taken against the officer in the video because he didn't violate any policies, according to Jenkins.

"They're in a tough spot. I mean I get why the officers are struggling with the enforcement of this. We're kind of breaking new ground. While we have our nuisance party ordinance, it was originally intended for hosts who hold parties with underage drinking," Jenkins said.

Ethridge was issued a ticket for the party hosted on her property, the police chief said.

Ethridge apologized "for the violation of our local social distancing guidelines," in a statement issued by Washington State University Athletics on her behalf.

"There was a gathering held on my driveway, of which I did not host. But as the guidelines state, the owner of the property is responsible for maintaining proper social distancing and mask wearing for all that are in attendance. As this did occur on my property, I take full responsibility.

"I appreciate the hard work being done by our Whitman County Health officials to keep our community as safe as possible during this pandemic. As a role model in our community, I will work to set a better example," Ethridge said in the statement.
