Democracy 2020: Erie County sees 96,000 absentee ballot requests and counting

  • Early votes in the US account for over 50% of votes that were cast in the entire 2016 presidential election

About 3.17 million absentee ballots had been cast in North Carolina as of Sunday, nine days before Election Day, records show.

"The preliminary estimate of voter turnout will likely increase when mail-in ballots dropped off in person are accounted for", said Watson.

"There's a huge chunk of voters who didn't cast ballots in 2016", Bonier said.

Campaigns typically push their voters to cast ballots early so they can focus scarce resources chasing more marginal voters as the days tick down to Election Day.

Four years ago, fewer than 200,000 people voted by mail in North Carolina.

In Washington state, you do NOT need to request a ballot if you're already registered. The 2016 general election saw half that number of absentee ballots returned, which at the time set a record.

Rodriguez said voters in Pima County will have the weekend to sort that out.

However, Republicans have narrowed the gap in their share of the early vote in recent weeks.

The Election Day votes this year in New Jersey will be paper provisional ballots that won't even start being counted until November 10, so there's a chance any initial returns will be skewed. Normally, to vote absentee, people must swear that they are out of town or ill or working during polling hours.

The strong share of new and infrequent voters in the early vote is part of what leads analysts to predict more than 150 million total votes will be cast and possibly the highest turnout in a U.S. presidential election since 1908.

That is higher than the 57 million who voted early or by mail in the 2016 polls, according to the US Election Assistance Commission website.

"The last thing we would want to do is create that expectation where Ohioans think they can wait until the last minute", LaRose said. The voter's pamphlet was mailed out the week prior.

The deadline to apply is at midnight Tuesday and more absentee ballot requests are expected.

After Monday, Colorado voters are advised to drop their ballots off at one of the almost 400 drop boxes across the state or to vote at a polling place to ensure their votes are counted.

Similarly, people who haven't yet registered to vote can still register at one of their county's polling places during early voting. They raise other questions in their filing, too, contending they "have observed alarming disparities among counties - sometimes even within a single county - in the interpretation and implementation" of the new election law.
