More than 4 million Florida voters have already cast ballots for the Nov. 8 election, according to the latest Division of Elections statistics.

 

Republicans have a slight turnout edge. So far, 40.4 percent of ballots cast have come from registered Republicans and 40 percent have come from Democrats. That’s a difference of only 15,926 ballots.

 

After eight days of in-person early voting, the number of people voting at early sites — 2,023,002 — is nearly equal to the 2,054,519 who have voted by mail.

 

Beyond the partisan breakdown, University of Florida political scientist Daniel Smith points out on his blog that reliably Democratic black voters are turning out in lower percentages than they did in 2012 while Hispanic voter turnout is higher than four years ago. More than one-third of Hispanic voters aren’t registered with either major party; polls show them favoring Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump.
