The Upshot @ The NY Times will update the total’s up to Election day…..
Millions of voters will cast ballots before Election Day, and this year The Upshot is tracking the returns in three states that could determine which party controls the Senate.
We’ll be updating this page every day until the election.
It can be difficult to interpret the flood of early voting returns. The biggest problem is what some political analysts call “cannibalizing” votes: It’s hard to know whether early voters would have voted on Election Day anyway, or if they’re the marginal, unreliable voters that the two parties are hoping to turn out to bolster their chances.
We are tracking whether early voters participated in the 2010 election in Colorado, North Carolina and Georgia.
The data is based on voter registration, vote history and absentee data files from the Colorado and Georgia Secretary of State, and the North Carolina Board of Elections…..
Through Oct. 30, 877,505 voters had cast ballots in North Carolina, or nearly 33 percent of the total votes cast in the 2010 midterm elections….
Through noon on Oct. 30, 1,061,788 voters had submitted mail-in ballots, or about 60 percent of the total vote from 2010.
Through Oct. 29, 709,255 voters had already cast ballots in Georgia, or nearly 28 percent of the number of voters from the 2010 midterm elections
