    Vermont's secretary of state says the number of registered voters in the state is at its highest level ever. 

    Secretary of State Jim Condos says that could mean a high turnout for the presidential and state elections on Tuesday. He says so far, 10 percent of voters have cast their ballots early. 

    Condos tells The Barre-Montpelier Times Argus there were 465,483 registered voters as of Monday evening, up from about 462,000 in 2014. The deadline to register is by 5 p.m. Wednesday and Condos says the number of registered voters is expected to grow until then. 

    Condos also says he's confident in the steps that the state has taken to protect the election process against voter fraud.

    [NATL] If You Have Time for Free Tacos, You Have Time 'To Go Vote': Obama
    Speaking in Columbus, Ohio, on Tuesday, President Obama urged people to vote and pick up a free taco. The president's audience, full of Cleveland Indians fans, was well aware of Taco Bell's campaign giving away free tacos Wednesday because the Indian’s Francisco Lindor stole a base in game one of the World Series. The president told voters the giveaway would make an ideal post-vote snack.

    “The reason I’m bringing this up,” Obama said. “If you can find the time to get a free taco, then you can find the time to go vote." (Published Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2016)
