Tracking Early Voting in the 2020 U.S. Election

Graph that shows more Democrat-registered voters have requested absentee ballots compared to Republican-registered voters.

The New York Times has created a series of visualizations that show how early voting and absentee ballots cast in this year’s presidential election compare to the 2016 election. So far, 66.4 million ballots have already been cast for the 2020 election, surpassing the early voter turnout record set in 2016. One graph shows that in every state that requires ballot requests, except Mississippi, citizens have requested more absentee ballots in this election than in 2016. Another graph uses data from states that require citizens to request absentee ballots and report party registration to show that Democrats have requested more absentee ballots than Republicans.

Take a look.
