I have a hard time trying to comprehend the logistics that must be executed in order to have well over 100,000,000 rightful United States citizens vote in an election. The sheer volume of votes is enough to make one’s head spin.
In rural counties like the one I live in, there is never much of a line, if any, to vote on Election Day, even during presidential election years. However, in the cities, I can imagine that polling stations are likely overwhelmed as tens of thousands of people are trying to cast their ballots on the same day. I assume this is why we allow ‘early voting.’
Logistically it makes sense, as it takes a lot of pressure off of the polling stations on Election Day, however, what happens if information is revealed about a candidate that puts their ability to faithfully execute the duties of the office they are running for, before the Election Day, but AFTER early voting has begun?
What if, hypothetically, someone voted early for candidate ‘D’ only to learn that the person they cast their ballot for was … for argument’s sake, … is being blackmailed by a hostile foreign power? That would be a serious problem IF that were to occur.
Well, apparently there are an increasing number of Americans who have voted early (as nearly 60,000,000 Americans have already done) want to know if they can change their vote.
According to Fox News:
Google searches of the phrase “can I change my vote” peaked Tuesday morning in the U.S. around 6 a.m. ET.
One of the subregions where the phrase began trending was in Delaware, the state Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden represented in the Senate for 36 years.
Other subregions included battleground states such as Maine, Pennsylvania, Florida, Ohio, Michigan, North Carolina, Iowa, Wisconsin and Arizona, according to Trend data.
While most states do not allow voters to change their early votes, there are some that do, with restrictions.
There are processes in place for early voters who change their mind to change their votes in some states such as New York, Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin, New Hampshire for example. To learn more about those processes check out this article over a Fox News.
President Trump took to Twitter to suggest that the spike in searches were done by regretful Biden voters who changed their mind after the shellacking Joe took in the final debate:
Strongly Trending (Google) since immediately after the second debate is CAN I CHANGE MY VOTE? This refers changing it to me. The answer in most states is YES. Go do it. Most important Election of your life!

To be fair, Fox News went on to explain that ‘while Trump suggested the Google trend started “immediately” after his debate with Biden on Thursday, data showed the search did not spike until Tuesday morning, five days later.’
While there have not been any devastating bombshells landed onTrump in October, Joe on the other hand has been up against the rocks for weeks now with his son’s **** plastered all over the internet along with videos of him smoking crack and engaging in all types of malarkey.
Can we be sure that the people asking about changing their votes are all, or even mostly, looking to switch from Biden to Trump? No, we have no way of knowing. However, we can speculate (as we love to do here at Illicit Info), and I think everyone who hates Trump and is voting against him made their minds up long ago and there is no coming back from that. However, that tiny percent that is on the fence and voted early could well have been alarmed by the allegations about the Biden’s business dealings and completed the searches.
That fact of the matter is that we do not know, and we will never know, but we will have a much better idea when the election is over and all the votes are counted.
