Midterm Elections Seeing Huge Turnout

Onslow County's early voting locations are the Board of Elections office, 246 Georgetown Road, and Jacksonville Commons, 100 Recreation Lane. Early voting opens up polling places before Election Day so voters can try and tip the scales with a vote in person. Electors who were unable to cast their ballot during the Early Voting can cast their ballot on Election Day scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 6.

In Robertson County, Clerk Joanie Jolly expects voters turnout of about 40 percent, she said.

"Voting absentee is a convenient way for New Mexicans to vote and it's great to see that nearly 50,000 voters have already returned their absentee ballots for this election", said Sec.

These problems and more have surfaced during early voting ahead of Tuesday's midterm elections. Central College's Andrew Green says that's showing up in early voting.

If Democrats can keep up their numbers through Election Day on November 6, they would match or outperform their turnout in the primaries when they bested Republican turnout by a little more than half a point, despite having few local candidates for voters to choose from.

There are more than 13 million registered voters in Florida.

But those leads in returned ballots vary at the congressional district level, where Democrats seem to be making some inroads in competitive races, at least in absentee voting. As it stands today, out of the 24,024,621 early votes and absentee votes already cast, 43 percent have been cast by Republicans, while 41 percent have been cast by Democrats.
