More than 20 million ballots have been cast in pre-election voting

October 16, 2020. Summarized by summa-bot.

More than 20 million ballots have been cast for this fall's election in 45 states and the District of Columbia, according to a survey of ballot data by CNN, Edison Research, and Catalist.

This data is not predictive of the ultimate outcome of any race, and polling shows that Democrats strongly prefer voting early or by mail, while Republicans prefer to vote on Election Day. As the candidates head out on the trail in Florida and Michigan Friday, here's the breakdown of ballots already cast in those states.

The racial composition of Florida's early voting electorate has shifted somewhat since 2016, with White voters making up a slightly smaller share of those who've already cast ballots and Black voters making up a slightly larger share.

Florida's early voters are trending younger than they did at this point in 2016, although voters 65 or older still account for the majority of ballots already cast.

About 3. 5 times more Michiganders have already voted this year compared to this point in 2016, according to Catalist data, with the biggest changes apparent when looking at early voters by age.

Every other age group accounts for a greater share of the pre-election vote now than they did at this point in 2016, but the largest increase has come from voters 50-64 who were 11% of the votes cast four years ago and are now 25%.

The racial breakdown of voters who've cast early ballots in Michigan has changed slightly from this point in 2016.
