Early Voters Doubled

Dec 2015
More than 26 million voters have already cast early ballots a week ahead of Election Day 2016, nearly double the amount of early vote at this point in the 2012 election, according to new analysis by the NBC News Data Analytics Lab.

On October 30, 2012, one week ahead of the Obama vs. Romney match-up, roughly 13.5 million voters had cast early ballots nationwide. Ahead of Election Day, early votes are generally cast via early in-person voting, no excuse in-person absentee voting or mail-in absentee voting.

Hillary Clinton's campaign has reason for optimism in several swing states -- and appears to have turned Arizona into a battleground -- as millions of Americans vote early. More than 7.3 million Americans have already voted. Democrats have improved their positions in North Carolina, Nevada and Arizona compared to this point in 2012, according to a CNN analysis of the latest early voting statistics.
In Colorado, Democrats have outvoted Republicans by more than 10,000 votes, doubling their lead since Saturday.
North Carolina, Registered Democrats have jumped ahead of registered Republicans by more than 100,000 votes in the Tar Heel State so far, as thousands of voters cast ballots over the weekend. The Democratic edge is slightly higher than it was in 2012.

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are perfect examples of why early voting should be against the law.

Early voting is wrong. If people don't have the interest or desire to find where to vote and how...on election day...that is their problem. If there are too long of lines in some places then open up more polling sights. Our 85 year old mother and her close neighbor/friend take price in knowing where to go and always make sure they have a ride...if the weather is bad. To us that means they have a life time pride, in their right to vote. Contrary to that I heard a young person from Oregon complaining they had to put their ..own stamp...on the mail in ballot envelope they got.
