The electorate, so far, is more black than the state's 7.2 million list of registered voters. Blacks account for 37% of early voters and 30% of all registered voters. Whites make up 52% of early voters and 53% of all registered voters.
Women are outpacing men in early voting. About 58% of early voters are female.
Early votes have been cast in all the state’s 159 counties. Most of those votes have been clustered around metro areas.
In-person early voting began on March 2, but about 14,000 voters had already mailed in ballots by then. Here’s how the flow of early votes adds up by day. Coronavirus closures and concerns caused early voting to drastically taper off in the final week.
People 65 and older make up nearly 53% of early voters.
Voters asking for a Democratic ballot outnumber people asking for a Republican ballot. That’s not a surprise given that the Democratic primary is competitive between Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders, while President Donald Trump faces no major primary challenge.
Most early voters are going to voting locations, and about 14% have mailed in their ballots. About 30,000 requested ballots have yet to be returned.
