Early voting in many states has ended. Now we enter a short intermission before the start of election day. I have voted, as have 79 percent of the voters in my county. The voting in my county breaks down like this:

81.4 percent of registered Republicans

78.8 percent of registered Democrats

66.7 percent of registered independents

have cast their ballots. Republicans vastly outnumber the rest of voters in my county. Voter turnout in Florida is high. There are roughly 14.5 million registered voters in Florida, and 57% of them have already voted. The state usually sees about a 75% turnout in Presidential election years. The record turnout for Florida was 83% in 1992. Here is how it looks by party:

As you can see, most votes in Florida have already been cast, and the outcome is too close to call by merely looking at party turnout. All that is left is to wait and watch the results, along with the fallout.

We voted on Thursday here on the east coast. It wasn't our regular polling place but a specially-created early voting location maybe two miles from our regular precinct. Although the parking lot was packed, there were virtually no lines inside. I stood behind one person once. It went very smoothly, very efficiently, with the OCR counting your ballot before you leave.
