Number of early US voters already surpasses the same total figure for 2016



More Americans have already cast early ballots in this year’s presidential race than all of those who ended up voting before Election Day and by absentee combined in 2016.

More than 58.5 million people have voted with still nine days to go before the general election Nov. 3. Four years ago, the total number of early and absentee voters overall was 58 million, according to the Associated Press.

This year’s early-voting numbers are fueled by an additional number of states, including New York, that allowed early voting because of COVID-19.

Democrats are overwhelmingly represented among early voters early compared to Republicans, although the GOPers have narrowed that gap in recent days.

Many New York City residents have braved hours-long lines to cast early ballots after polling sites opened this weekend.
