According to a new report from TheHill, Democrats are far outpacing Republicans in early voting with a surge of vote by mail absentee ballots.
Over 6 million in the U.S. have already voted in 27 states for the upcoming election.
According to The Hill, at this time, registered Democrats have returned more than twice the number of ballots as registered Republicans – roughy 1.4 million ballots compared to roughy 653k.
Democrats have made a major push to increase voting by mail amid an ongoing pandemic.
The Democrats current advantage in early voting stretches to 3 key swing states – Florida, North Carolina and Pennsylvania.
Per the Hill “In Florida, registered Democrats had out-voted registered Republicans by a slim 37 percent to 35 percent margin by this point in 2016. Today, almost 53 percent of votes cast in Florida have come from registered Democrats, while Republicans account for just 28 percent.
In North Carolina, registered Democrats have cast 52 percent of all ballots so far, up from 36 percent four years ago. Registered Republicans account for just 17 percent of the ballots, down from 37 percent in 2016.
And in Pennsylvania, a state at the heart of Trump’s reelection strategy, registered Democrats have cast more than three-quarters of all ballots. Republicans made up just 15 percent of ballots returned to date.”
