More than 41 million pre-election ballots have been cast across 47 states, according to data from elections officials, Edison Research and Catalist.
Pre-election voting has been ahead of the 2018 pace across the states where data is available from for the last three cycles. However, it’s still too early to know if overall turnout will reach 2018 levels, as voting patterns may have changed in the last few years.
Texas still has had the most pre-election votes, with more than 5.4 million ballots cast. Florida has had more than 4.7 million ballots cast and California has more than 4.1 million. Georgia, with more than 2.5 million ballots cast, and North Carolina, with more than 2.1 million, are the only other states with more than 2 million ballots cast so far.
Some voter data comes from Catalist, a company that provides data, analytics and other services to Democrats, academics and nonprofit issue-advocacy organizations and is giving insights into who is voting before November.
