US embassy issues statement on ballots for polls

Muscat: The US Embassy in Muscat has issued an advisory regarding ballots for the upcoming American elections.

“For US citizens who have received an absentee ballot, you can mail it yourself or drop it in the ballot box at the Embassy’s visitor entrance on Mondays and Tuesdays 8-11 am through September 28. We’ll mail it for you by diplomatic pouch,” a statement said.

The 2020 United States presidential election is scheduled for Tuesday, November 3, 2020. It will be the 59th quadrennial presidential election.

Voters will select presidential electors who in turn will vote on December 14, 2020, to either elect a new president and vice president or reelect the incumbents Donald Trump and Mike Pence respectively.

The series of presidential primary elections and caucuses were held from February to August 2020. This nominating process is an indirect election, where voters cast ballots selecting a slate of delegates to a political party’s nominating convention, who then, in turn, elect their party’s nominees for president and vice president.
