The Google search for ‘how to change your early vote’ has skyrocketed in recent days.
Those who had write-in ballots are reportedly changing their minds, perhaps in response to the recent announcement from FBI Director James Comey to reopen the probe into the email investigation centered around Hillary Clinton.
Comey announced on Friday the FBI would be reopening its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, as well as her handling of classified and dangerous government information.
Based on Google’s trending data, since the day of the announcement, searches for “change early vote” have increased substantially.
According to the Google trends, the states currently displaying the most interested behavior are Nevada, Louisiana, Kansas, New Hampshire, and Arkansas.
However, the interest displayed in Google trends was fairly widespread across all 50 states.
Other variations in the search, such as ‘changing early vote’ and ‘change early vote’, yielded similar results.
The Daily Caller reports:
According to CNN, while some states like Florida, North Carolina, Ohio, and Arizona do not allow a redo votre, others like Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan,Pennsylvania, New York, on connecticut, and Mississippi do allow voters to change their early vote.
Donald Trump recently urged voters who had cast their vote early to recall their ballot if they were having second thoughts.
In his opinion, “a lot has happened lately” which could change the outcome of the election.
The FBI’s sudden interest in the Clinton email case is one such factor that could potentially have a major impact on voter decision in the upcoming week.
The Christian Post reports:
You can change your vote in six states. So, now that you see that Hillary was a big mistake, change your vote to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” Trump declared in a Tweet Wednesday with less than a week before Election Day.
With less than one week until Election Day, it will be interesting to see how the recall of so many ballots may affect the election.
Based on the response to Google searches only, it also appears that voter turnout is significantly higher this election than in 2012.
USA Today reports:
More than 24 million people have voted early in the 2016 election with more than half of those in battleground states. With one week to go until Election Day, the early turnout is nearly twice as high as it was at this point in 2012.
With new information being released on Clinton’s Foundation, and investigations into certain fraudulent and pay-to-play schemes also being released, it’s no wonder so many people are wishing to recall their vote for such a criminal.
Do you think more states should recall their votes?
