Early Voting Turn Out Exceeds 2016

With one week to Election Day, both parties watch tally carefully.

As the nation nears Election Day, an overwhelming number of voters have already made their voices heard by voting early. More people have already cast early ballots than those who voted early or absentee in 2016’s presidential election. So far, over 58.6 million votes have been cast. Of the votes cast, 25% are first-time or infrequent voters and skew younger than the usual electorate makeup. 

With Election Day one week away, both parties are carefully watching the various counts in order to get a better understanding of what next Tuesday’s outcome could be. States such as Florida and Nevada count early votes as they come in, whereas many rust belt states won’t begin counting their votes until the main tally has taken place. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For God to guide the American people as they cast their ballots.
  • That God would lead both campaigns to accurately portray their platforms and policies.
  • That the election would be free from any foreign or domestic interference.
