Early Voting During the Pandemic

Many posts have discussed early voting, which is reaching unprecedented levels during the pandemic.

As of this morning, 31,677,305 have already voted. In states that register by party, Democrats outnumber Republicans among early voters 53.5% to 24.6% Four years ago at this point, only 5.9 million had voted. It is possible that Democrats are cannibalizing their Election Day vote and that it will tilt heavily Republican. Then again, the third wave of COVID could tamp down Election Day turnout.

Also as of this morning: 8.2 million cases and 220,134 deaths.
