WASHINGTON, D.C. – The 2020 general election in the United States may have a very high turnout, as voters have cast over 1.1 million ballots so far as opposed to a small fraction of that number at this time in 2016.

A University of Florida professor, Michael McDonald, is crunching voting numbers from all the states that are making the data available – 25 states so far. As of September 29, voters have cast a total of 1,125,318 ballots in the reporting states. A chart on the website that is displaying McDonald’s findings shows that Democrats and crushing Republicans, 152,541 – 49,894 (see below). Voters have requested a total of 64,755,076 ballots in the reporting states.

McDonald apparently will continue to crunch the numbers, writing, “these states are those where I have current data on mail ballot activity. More states will be added as state reports become available.”

It’s been reported that only about 10,000 ballots had been cast at this point in the 2016 election.

The general election is November 3. In-person voting opens in Iowa on October 5 in courthouses.
