In 2016, 41% of all ballots were cast before election day.

According to: https://www.eac.gov/news/2017/06/29/newly-released-2016-election-administration-and-voting-survey-provides-snapshot


I might hasten a guess of close to 75% or 80% of votes will be cast early this election, based on the high turnout in early voting/mail in voting so far with 2.1 million people (at this point in 2016, I don't think we even reached a million). These votes will nearly all be counted before election day(minus the slow counting states of Mi, Wi and Pa), and reported when polls close. Needless to say, I'm feeling good about things right now

What percentage of votes do you believe will be cast before election day, 2020?

1. Most seniors and maybe woman will vote early.

My guess 55% of total votes will be cast or mailed early. I am off to the post office tomorrow for a dated meter postage. Looks like it weighs an ounce and a half so Two stamps if you drop it in the mail.

2. I'm going to guess closer to 60

most but not all Dems, few Reps, about half of Independents.

3. I'm really interested though in seeing what turnout on election day will look like.

If we have like 100 million votes cast and election day turnout is super low, that will indicate a Biden landslide of historical proportions.
