Nearly 2.6 million Florida voters are receiving mail ballots for the November election
It's still early, but there's no sign of a blue wave in the initial wave of mail ballot returns in Florida.
Figures filed Wednesday with the state show that more Republicans than Democrats are returning their mail ballots, 20 days before Election Day. Nearly 2.6 million voters have been sent mail ballots what used to be called absentee ballots and 554,000 arrived through Tuesday.
Republican mail ballot returns of 247,530 accounted for 45 percent of the total returns statewide, even though Republicans account for 35 percent of all voters. The Democratic returns of 207,171 accounted for 37 percent of the total, the same as the party's share of the statewide electorate.
Returns are updated daily. But if this trend continues, it means Democrats must outperform Republicans in early voting and on election day if any of the party's major candidates are to prevail on Nov. 6.

Its called, Kavanaugh Effect
NC had it’s first day of early voting yesterday. I was voter #5, right behind my 18 year old son.
Let’s hope this trend continues.
Leftists still think that behaving like barbaric Bolsheviks, and trying to foment a revolution or civil war is going to sway the nation to their side.
The Florida Squeeze did not post a report yesterday.
The progs might be in a funky mood.
I will be absentee voting in Virginia Beach Saturday.
White person following the rules gets accused of racism and loses their job. Typical.
Sorry, wrong thread.
precisely. Preserving presumption of innocence, evidence, and due process, thankfully still matters to some people.
Already outdated and incorrect information. 3.2 million Floridians have now requested mail ballots of this morning. Of this, a whopping 677,000 have already been returned and cast. R voters lead by 43,000 compared to D voters as of this morning. This guy is already behind the curve.
That’s exactly right. It’s looking even better for GOP this morning.
Fake news media saddened, deeply saddened at Democrat underperformance.
How does this stack up vs. 2016?
This reminds me of the first time I voted 1988. My father I were the first two in when they opened the doors (dad right behind me). I had no problem figuring out the punch card VotoMatic device.
Do you know where we were on this day 2016 in terms of returns?
Speedyintexas has that information from 2016. He was posting daily totals then for FL for mail ballot and early voting.
Shhh. Don’t let the enemy know or they’ll send in more illegal ballots.
Speedy, lil help?
Just eyeballin’ it, I’m pretty sure we’re ahead of 2016, when as I recall Rs finished absentee balloting 114,000 ahead.
As of today, we’d finish about 129,000 ahead.
Thursday 10/20/16: REPs - 369,467, DEMs - 356,635 lead of 12,832 for REPs, 41.7% to 40.2%
We have a much bigger lead this year.
