Updated today's reports, and we're just shy of at least half a million people who have voted in the 2018 general election at 479,212. That's a big increase from this morning, in part due to entering data for states that don't release daily reports

People are voting early! The to date as a percentage of the *total* 2014 early vote in some states is eye popping: MN 36.2% VA 21.2% ND 15.5% WI 14.8% IL 10.0%

Usually early voting picks up as Election Day nears, especially once in-person early voting starts. It's possible we're seeing high propensity voters casting ballots earlier than usual and the pace will slack off. Or this is a sign of unusually high midterm turnout. Probably both

any chance someone could give me the total number of ballot requests by party in Iowa? I could not open the link.

Will Georgia make it to 1 million+ early votes in 2018? (It was 954,000 in 2014.) It's possible.

Has MN changed laws or policies since 2014?

MN adopted no-excuse absentee voting after, so that undoubtedly partly explains the increase, but I don't think it is the entire explanation, particularly among some of the other states that have had no changes to their laws

Do you have county-by-county stats for early voting in North Dakota, Wisconsin, and Illinois?

Our office is sending out 200+ absentee ballots a day. No way to tell how many will return them, but it feels like it’s picked up.

Because I was curious, I looked at some numbers. In 2014, City of Madison, WI had 8,811 in-person absentee and 9,173 mail (and a few other) absentee applications. Today, we've got 7,439 non-inperson absentee applications.

1,302 of those applications were this week. And we never did finish opening, nevermind processing, the mail today.

In 2014, there were 6,219 non-inperson absentee ballots returned. Today, there are 1,942. In-person numbers aren't as drastic, but next week we'll go from one in-person absentee voting site to 11.

Wisconsin has had changes to their laws since 2014 as a result of a court decision. Early voting hours have expanded. All voters can get ballots via fax/email as opposed to only UOCAVA.

When do you expect mail-in ballots from California to start coming in?

Not if the Republican candidate for governor can help it.
