Fans of President Donald Trump on Twitter over the weekend put forth theories about why reports of the coronavirus have been mostly confined to states controlled by Democrats.

Officials at the Center for Disease Control (CDC) said on Saturday that there are at least 71 cases and one death in the U.S. from the virus, which is known as COVID-19.

Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar confirmed on Sunday that one new case has been identified in Chicago. Several hours later, the CDC said the first case had been found in Rhode Island.

Those come in addition to cases in other left-leaning states like California, Massachusetts and Oregon. Several so-called red states — Wyoming, Texas and Arizona — also reportedly have patients with the virus.

On Twitter, the president’s supporters speculated why the majority of cases are in blue states.

Kaplan of Federal District Court in Manhattan, rejected the Justice Department’s attempt to step into the case and defend the president, and his ruling means that, for the moment, a lawsuit by the writer E.

What to do if you change your mind about voting by mail

Published

on

If you’ve received a mail ballot but have changed your mind and want to vote in person, there’s some good news: You probably can do this.

The details differ from state to state. In some, you’ll be allowed to cast a regular ballot, and in others you’ll cast a “provisional” ballot, to be counted once election officials determine you haven’t already voted.
