Well it sounds interesting enough, Florida that is. You say it's awesome to have a bunch of new or inactive voters coming out to vote early, we will see I guess. I expect a large Republican pushback with November 3rd votes and a really close race, as usual.

Without Florida trump will be really hurt.

South FL and Whorelando are the gimmecrats strongest concentrations... also its no coincidence those areas have the largest crime issues.

my biggest question (and im sure when i get a few min to google it) is who has access to these early voting results? surely they arent made public...but for damn sure SOMEONE has access to the results from in person ballots as they are all scanned in electronically.

given they are out there, will either campaign get access to them? I do recall in the past they tend to release at least the voter registration numbers...ie the % rep/dem/ind of those who have cast their votes...and they have been doing so for the mail in and absentee ballots in florida sofar (with a nearly 2:1 democrat lead at 1.4m votes and counting).

just makes you wonder how this will impact both sides in the next few weeks if numbers like today continue!

id have to guess that more republicans are voting early in person than dems....as a response to the whole "mail in ballot fraud/issues" stories.
That's possible (though the stats show Dems slightly ahead for in-person voting, but not as many states report that info as they do for mail-in voting- graphs below), but Dems have a big lead lead overall. Over 29mil votes have been cast- the states that have thus far reported registration info for early voting (accounting for over 13mil votes) show Dems leading Reps by a 2:1 margin- this won't last and doesn't really mean anything as far as the election goes, but Reps are voting later in general- in-person shows D:R 674K:511K:

Over 35,540,000 early votes have been cast (source linked in my post above)- that's just over 25% of the 2016 total turnout. :frEEk:

sadly as its been explained in the past...electoral votes are not cast for an individual...but the "parties candidate".

so even if joe is removed/dead/whatever, most states are required by law to still cast their electoral votes for the party that won that state. it does not matter who that individual actually is.
