Early voter turnout strong across state

Early voting shatters records in New Mexico

And the latest numbers show this could be a record setting turnout of early voting, which ends Saturday, November 3, according to the Florida Division of Elections. More than 6.6 million voted early or voted by mail in the 2016 presidential election.

Prepaid postage on all ballot-return envelopes now means you don't even need to scrounge for a stamp, making it easier than ever to vote in the all-mail election.

The secretary of state's office predicts turnout will reach 30 to 35 percent on Election Day. Turnout during presidential election cycles is typically much higher than for midterms. Among lower-key elections, however, participation seems to be slightly higher among registered Democrats, which McDonald suggests could be a effect of voters channeling discontent with national politics into their local races.

In Onslow County, turnout is slightly lower, with less than 5% of residents voting early. All Washington voters are asked to weigh in on a U.S. Senate race, as well as statewide ballot measures to enact new gun laws and fees on pollution.

All voters who vote in person must provide identification.
