Voter remorse? “Can I change my vote?” trending on Google search this past week

Oct 26th

In the days since the last debate, "Can I change my vote?" has been trending on Google search.

Short answer, no, sadly, no you can't. That ship has sailed.

Of course, the trend doesn't tell you the "why" behind the search. But one can only speculate that Trump's strong performance in the final debate, Biden's revealing comments about putting a lid on fossil fuel subsidies/production (not to mention his continued "lids" on public/press appearances and access), endless gaffes, and the Hunter Biden computer scandal, may all be playing into the voter remorse.

For those who haven't yet voted … vote responsibly.

You only get one shot at this.

*A handful of states make limited provision for changing an early/mail-in vote, but restrictions apply and options are limited.

UPDATE 10/27: Donald Trump has picked up on the Google trend and tweeted, "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!"

In keeping with his hyperbolic style, the president may be overstating his case, but Fox News reports, "While most states do not allow voters to change their early votes, there are some that do, with restrictions."

If you've got genuine remorse, a quick call to your local board of elections might give you some options for a do-over.
