Our next update for NC Early Voting is on the web.
A question for our dear readers: why does early voting climb during the week? the over the week early voting patterns obtain across all of the states we have looked at?
With some small discrepancies, Florida, Tennessee, Texas, and North Carolina all show a slow climb in the return rate of early ballots from Monday through Friday. There is always a substantial drop on the weekend, but this is deceptive–in every state, there are far fewer early voting locations open on Saturday and Sunday.
If you have any thoughts, email me. I’ll post reactions sometime next week.
