Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin The Ford Explorer is a legendary vehicle, although not to be confused with the giant Ford Expedition driven by Jack Bauer in the TV series “24”. The most recent internal combustion Explorer is about a foot shorter, albeit still a large SUV in the American style. Now there is a European car carrying the Explorer badge – but this time it’s all electric. The new electric Ford Explorer was launched in Central London , although it’s not due to arrive with customers until 2024. The electric Ford Explorer that was launched in London is much smaller than the American car it shares a name with – over two feet (60cm) shorter, 5in (13cm) narrower, and 7in (18cm) less tall. In truth, it’s a completely different car, and there will be no fossil fuel variant, not even a hybrid. This is a pure-electric vehicle and is intended primarily for Europe.

Red State Gov Signs Bill Banning Ballot Harvesting Ahead Of Reelection Bid
Republican Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves signed a bill Wednesday that bans ballot harvesting in the state ahead of his 2023 reelection bid. Reeves, who is running for his second term this year, signed Senate Bill 2358 into law, prohibiting ballot harvesting in Mississippi. The bill only allows certain individuals to “knowingly collect and transmit” ballots, including election officials on duty and family members delivering on behalf of their relatives. “Across the country, we’ve seen how bad actors have used ballot harvesting to take advantage of elderly and vulnerable voters in other states, all so they can try to circumvent our democratic process and cut you out of it. But here in Mississippi, we’re just not going to let that happen,” Reeves said. Other instances where the collection and delivery is permitted is when the USPS, a caregiver or a paid “common carrier” transport the ballots, and the “parcel” may only contain one ballot, according to the bill.
