Early voting on Saturday surpassed the corresponding Saturday in 2016 and exceeded the last three gubernatorial elections’ Saturdays combined in the 15 counties with the most registered voters. It was the highest Saturday vote total ever for early voting in those counties, and likely in the state as a whole.
Turnout on Sunday is historically the lowest of any day during the early voting period. Many counties have reduced hours and/or polling places, and many smaller counties do not offer early voting on Sunday.
Through six days (Monday through Saturday), almost 2.4M people have voted early in person or by mail, a 183% increase over the same six days in 2014 and a 38% increase over the total for the entire early voting period that year. With six days to go, including Sunday, total votes cast in the 15 counties is just over 52% the number case early in 2016.
