Where are all these Democratic votes coming from? Some of Florida's reddest counties.

Where is the Democratic advantage in Floridaís early voting and vote-by-mail coming from? It turns out in ruby-red districts.

A look at county totals shows some of Floridaís Republican strongholds also see the highest turnout rate among Democrats so far this election cycle.

The clearest example comes in Collier County, where Democratic turnout 10 days out from the election has already exceeded 62%. As of Saturday morning, 26,310 Democrats had returned their mail ballot, and another 7,553 cast votes at early voting locations. Thatís a total of 33,863 votes already locked in.

That means Democrats in the county boast a higher turnout rate than they do in any other county in Florida.

Itís all the more remarkable considering Democrats make up just 24.5% of voters in the county, a total of 54,845 Collier Democrats in total.

Thatís not to say Collier County Republicans should shake in their boots. About 54% of Republicans in the county also already turned out, and that means 61,232 Republican ballots already in the box there.

But itís a sign how the Presidential election could turn in the largest swing state. President Donald Trump, who voted early in Florida himself on Saturday, needs to beat Democrat Joe Biden in Florida to have a shot at reelection, according to most analysts.

1. Hey! Collier County!

That's where Ray Finkle is from!

Sorry. I just love the movie Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.
