I was just able to process the early voting files from Florida through Friday. Thursday and Friday end up being record days for early voting turnout: 300,000 Thursday and 343,000 Friday. It’s now passed the 2m mark. Last year, a total of 2.6m voted early, so it’s unlikely they will match last year’s numbers. However, it will probably be closer than I was speculating before.
The partisan division continues the same pattern as before, and will not change much with Saturday’s voting. As of Friday, 46% of early voters were Democratic registrants, and 37% Republican registrants. Last year it was 52%-31%, so there’s been a six percentage point shift toward the Republicans.
