Early voting in person has concluded. Ballots by mail that arrive after today (Friday) are also included as early votes, so the final totals will be higher than any reported prior to Election Day.

Through yesterday (Thursday), the 10th day of early voting, turnout in the 15 counties with the most registered voters was second highest in state history for both parties. Just over 423K Republicans had voted early, which is 12% behind the 2016 record but 78% ahead of 2012. Nearly 571K Democrats had voted early, 67% ahead of 2016 but 20% below the record-setting pace of 2008.

Statewide, Republican turnout is 5.4% of registered voters, and Democratic turnout is 4.7%.
