If a voter chooses to vote in person at their assigned polling place on Election Day, Tuesday, November 6, they can return the absentee ballot to the precinct officials to be voided and will vote a replacement ballot.

Tuesday, November 6: Vote-by-mail ballots must be postmarked on Election Day and received by the Board of Elections within 48 hours after the polls close in order to be counted. As of Friday afternoon, Texas voters are poised to surpass their 2014 total turnout just in early voting alone. Another 1.6 million+ have been sent mail-in ballots but have not returned them yet.

The high volume surprised the Election Commission and caused parking problems at the Princeton Arts Center, one of the county's three early voting locations. With such similar numbers, the small gap could simply be a swing towards voting on election day.

What advantages, if any, high early voting turnout will give to the candidates is unclear.

Mail ballot voters can swing by any one of 59 libraries across the county.

In that election, St. Johns County Republicans turned out more than 62 percent, or 52,208, of their registered voters.

Both Democrats and Republicans alike have been casting their ballots early, with 43 per cent of the total early voter turnout being Republican voters and 41 per cent being Democrats, according to NBC News. The hotline is run by a nonpartisan coalition of more than 100 organizations, led by the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law. There are now 30,524 active registered voters in the city and 78,253 in the county.

In contrast, for people 65 and older who had voted early and in person, about 7 percent didn't vote in 2016.

Obviously, the interest in 2018 has far exceeded the interest of the 2014 election, the last time Republicans were said to have won big.

The political party numbers are broken down to: 1.29 million Republican voters and 1.23 million Democratic voters.

"Voters who have moved and re-registered may not know where they vote", said Washburne.

The spike in turnout appears to be driven in part by Hispanics, according to an analysis, de Leon said.
