NC Early Voting Update: November 1

Early voting in NC began on October 20. I thought it might be interesting to compare the Early Voting numbers with 2018, the last midterm election. A day-to-day comparison wouldn't tell us much, since the days are different due to how Election Day changes, and there are usually fewer votes on weekends. So I thought a total-vote comparison and an average-votes-per-day comparison would be better:

In 2018, after 12 days of Early Voting, 1,101,686 votes had been cast.

In 2022, after 12 days of Early Voting, 1,195,922 votes have been cast. Therefore, this year we have had 94,236 more votes cast after 12 days of Early Voting.

In 2018, the average number of votes per day after 12 days of EV was 91,807.

In 2022, the average number of voters per day after 12 days of EV is 99,660, a difference of 7,853 votes per day.

Things look good so far with Early Voting.

However, the biggest change is in mail-in ballots that have been received. In 2018 (in the Before Times), at this point there had been 41,373 ballots received by mail. This year, the total so far is 100,112. That's a difference of 58,739.

Overall, there have been 152,975 more votes cast this year so far than in 2018.

2. I'm in NC

and my office is in a municipal building which houses on of my countyís early voting sites. The first day, early voting was heavy. Then it leveled off - until today. Starting first thing this morning, voting has once again been heavy. (Note that Iím in a VERY red county, so Iím not sure if this is a good thing or not. Probably not 🙁.)

4. As long as we can knock enough doors

Especially on Eday, I think there is a good shot at it.
