Early in-person voting tops 2M in North Carolina

Early voter turnout strong across state

Early voting ends Saturday, Nov. 3.

Nationwide, more than 4.3 million Americans have already voted.

30, voters should drop their ballots off at a voting center or 24-hour drop box instead of putting them in the mail.

Those levels are comparable to 2016, which saw 43 per cent of Democrats and 40 per cent of Republicans making up the total turnout with just six days left until the election. To see more, visit KCUR 89.3.

In addition, the Federal Bureau of Investigation will have special agents available in each field office and resident agency throughout the country to receive allegations of election fraud and other election abuses on Election Day.

There are more than 13 million registered voters in Florida. Through Thursday, early turnout was 217 percent of what it was in 2014.

In Illinois, voters are deciding all statewide offices including governor, as well as several competitive congressional and other races.

The Illinois State Board of Elections says almost 840,000 early votes had been cast statewide as of late Wednesday.

Republicans accounted for 34 percent. There are crossover voters, even in this hyperpartisan era. For the record, those latter groups account for about 23 percent of the ballots in party registration states.

In Mecklenburg County, Michael Dickerson, director of the Board of Elections expects the early voting numbers to double 2014's by Saturday.

More than 307,000 Louisiana residents have voted in advance of next week's election, exceeding the state's early voting turnout for all but presidential election years.

- Voters who recently moved to New Hampshire will have to submit additional documentation after the state Supreme Court overturned a lower court's ruling that had placed the requirement on hold.

In contrast, for people 65 and older who had voted early and in person, about 7 percent didn't vote in 2016.

Obviously, the interest in 2018 has far exceeded the interest of the 2014 election, the last time Republicans were said to have won big.

The secretary of state's office predicts turnout will reach 30 to 35 percent on Election Day. If the voter does not have the absentee ballot with them, they will be issued a provisional ballot which will be counted after the Electoral Board has confirmed that their mail absentee ballot was not received and counted. Along with all the traditional absentee voters, well over 1.7 million people had voted as of Friday. If that held through Election Day, it would be a huge number.

Voters should bring their ID to the polls with them.
