The Presidential election exercise in the United States is already underway as Americans decide on who would lead them for the next 4 years.

According to a report by CNN, more than 100 million votes were cast nationwide before the polls opened on Election Day.

The report reveals that a total of 63,840,725 mail ballots votes were cast, a total of 36,446023 in-person votes cast. These figures amounts to a total of 100,286,748 early election votes cast which represent more than 47% of registered voters nationwide and 73% of the ballots cast in the 2016 presidential election.  

As expected, Pre-Election Day voting skyrocketed across the country amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. At least six states; Texas, Hawaii, Nevada, Washington, Arizona, and Montana have surpassed their total turnout from the 2016 general election in recent days.

Another seven states; North Carolina, Oregon, Colorado, New Mexico, Georgia, Florida, and Tennessee have reached at least 90% of their 2016 total votes.

37 other states and Washington, DC, have crossed their halfway marks for total 2016 ballots cast, including 14 of  CNN’s 16 most competitively-ranked states – Texas, Georgia, North Carolina, Nevada, Florida, Arizona, Colorado, Wisconsin, Maine, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska and Ohio

A little less than half of the votes already cast this cycle comes from those 16 key states, which will play a crucial role in determining who wins the presidency this year.

Some voter information comes from Catalist, a company that provides data, analytics and other services to Democrats, academics and nonprofit issue-advocacy organizations and is giving insights into who is voting before November.
