"And also some late legal challenges to win. And if all those votes get counted, William Bringem has more on what this means. Come Election night and beyond. That's right. Judy Almost 70 million people have already cast their ballots in this election. This massive turnout includes a combination of mail in ballots and people going to vote in person. So with Election Day, just a week away, we dive into what these numbers say about the electorate with Michael McDonald. He's a professor of political science at the University of Florida, and he runs the United States Election Project, which has been tracking the vote. So far, Professor McDonald. Great to have you on the news hour. So you've been tracking this really unprecedented turnout of early voting. What can you tell us about what the trends are showing? Well, we've seen more people vote in this election than any prior election that we had in the history of the country. So we're a record pace in some states were pushing near 100% of the turnout. That occurred in the 2016 election in its entirety, not just its early vote so that we're combination of all people who voted have now been surpassed by the people who have voted early. Yes, we're getting very close to those numbers in some states of Texas and Hawaii and others air Following right on their heels. So what this means in one part is that we're looking at a very high turnout Election perhaps 150, million people or so a vote. And that could be the highest turnout that we'll see in a modern election since 1908 so truly remarkable numbers in terms of people growing, and certainly a wonderful thing, just for our democracy in general, are you able to discern what this huge turnout means for either party? Do we know who's actually turning out? Yeah, there's good evidence to say that By and large, It's Democrats. You're going early, and that's actually very similar to what we've seen in prior elections as well. Usually more Democrats both early, but the way in which they do it is different. In prior elections. Democrats had voted predominantly in person early, and that's how they pile up their early voting numbers This time around. What we're seeing is Democrats are voting by mail early And as they've hollowed out others in person, early verse, we're actually seeing Republicans do quite well in the person early vote in many states. But overall, the electorate is still very heavily democratic in the early vote, and that's what we've seen in prior elections as well. Election day tends to be very Republican. So you have to wait for the whole election to get through. You have to get that Election day vote, which was it will offset that that early vote to some degree and how much it does that will tell us who will win the election. And do those Democratic leaning early voters. Also, are they using voting by mail as well. We've certainly seen AH lot of controversy around voting by mail. The president has been basically saying that it's riddled with fraud. ISAT, largely Democrats using that that technology this time around Yes, Absolutely. Usually it's Republicans who vote by mail in most states. Now I'm not talking about the on ly a balance states because obviously every voter kitchen mailed out in those states. What I'm talking about our states where there's multiple methods of floating and where you do have that you do see, Republicans tend to use mail ballots more frequently than Democrats. In this election. It's all topsy turvy. Seeing Democrats vote by mail instead of voting in person, and we're seeing Republicans voting in person instead of voting by mail. We had over 80 million about requests that we're going to be honored by election officials. And we knew that the party registration of those voters attended to break heavily towards the Democrats. So we knew that Democrats were going to have lots of balance. What we haven't quite expected to see is not only have Democrats been voting nailed outside hire On levels, but they're also returning those balance a higher rate than Republicans. That's another surprise that we're seeing in the selection. Usually it's Republicans were returning those mail ballots and Iraq and Democrats now I can't really tell everything that's going on here. It could be very well that some Republicans have gotten cold feet, and even though they requested him now about they're planning to vote in person, Maybe in person Early work in person on Election Day on this question of counting those mail in ballots. We've seen the Supreme Court come down with two rulings with regards to Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. About when late arriving mail in ballots Khun be counted with those rulings and with others that are pending. What is your sense of what that means for Election day and when we might know who's won this election? It's important understand that election officials never count all the ballots on election night. There's always some balance that need to be checked over on after the election, and there's a certification story that takes place in the weeks after the election that's totally counted. That's completely normal. But in this election, we've got all these mail ballots and and it could be that those bad thoughts would be coming back to election offices and overwhelming them if they came back, ready to very end. But people have voted earlier. That's good news and some states, the states are actually preparing those ballots for accounting. There are some states like Wisconsin and Pennsylvania and Michigan, where The election officials constrained and how they can count his balance. So we know in those states is going to take them longer to count the ballots simply because they're not able to start the preparatory work yet, But in other states, we should get some very fast results. State likewise itself in Florida We should get those 99% of those ballots counted on election night. And we should have a good idea who won Florida But in some other states, it may take a little bit world while the election officials to count all the ballots and obviously then sort of re calibrates all of our expectations about when we know final results. Professor Michael McDonald of the University of Florida. Thank you so much for being here to be with you. In the days. Other news, Amy.

"Central Florida district, and we'll talk to Richard Haass, president of the Council on Foreign Relations for his thoughts on how the pandemic has changed. Foreign policy. Plus hope fades for a new economic stimulus bill before the election. What does that mean for economic growth? But first Florida will once again be key to the president? The election. President Trump carried the state in 2016, and most likely will have to do it again this year. If he's to win. I talked to University of Florida political science professor at Michael McDonald about the challenges of declaring a winner on election night. Yeah, We're always going to get it right. First on DH. I've been doing decision desk work at exit poll organization and immediate partners since 2002. I never called the election the long way. Um, I'm lucky other people made it. But by the way, that makes him one of us because I was running ABC news in 2000 when we got it wrong twice in one night, So I've been on the other side of that trade. So, but you know, you don't call the close races with exit polls. You called him with actual election results. And when it gets down to the wire, you're looking at that data every which way you can t O see whether or not there's enough information there to call the election. The cycle is going to be no different than pliers and Going to use that same methodology. The challenge is going to be. We've got these unprecedented number of male and early votes there, you know, like we're going to be in the mix. And how will election officials count those balance? That will be and how would they report them? That will be the problem will be facing. So how we're going to do it. We're going to look a TTE. Counties that we suspect her, 100% reported. Maybe we have some confirmation from the election office and if we believe that, the county's 100% reported Then we can start leveraging that information to see if other counties are at what we think. Is their turnout target. If they're not, then that means Hey, there's probably some outstanding mail ballots there. We're gonna need to hold off on call that Area on you know, depending on how the other parts of the state are going, I do expect, you know, and they're going to some fast reporting states, though, on Florida. On DH. Some of the states that didn't really expand mail balloting like Texas State should have all male bowel elections and run them for a while and about in the states. It's important understand about have to be back to election offices on Election Day, so places like Colorado, Oregon. We're going to get a read on the overall election. We're going to get a readout of some critical battleground. We make it some good data out of North Carolina, even though there can't be some ballots to come back later, and it's really just going to the Big three Rust Belt states of Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, where Yeah, it's gonna take a while. Maybe take 2 to 3 days for them, hopefully not longer to count all their mail about because it can't really start counting them until Election Day or in Michigan's case, the day before the secretary of state for Michigan, actually said that she doesn't expect that results until Friday. Ah, Tuesday election, but it takes into Florida just for a minute here. What about what percentage of the balance do you expect will be male in when do they have to be in? Because it's not true. They have to be in by election day in all states. Some states have a long time. And can you start counting them before Election Day? Jetport. Election officials are already processing the 1.7 million ballots that have already been returned to election offices. That's 1.7 million already. Loaded Now there's a another. Oh, roughly about four million that haven't been returned yet, so there's still a lot more out there that we're looking at. Perhaps 50% of the vote in Florida will be cast by mail. Another 20% or so could be cast in person early on, so we're gonna have a lot of votes and how this is all going to play out. It's actually really important for people understand. Knows a lot of votes. Except the ballot to come in on election day. They're going to be some of the very first votes that we get out of Florida will be reported. Maybe within 30 minutes of the polls closing in on Election Day will be those Male and in person votes, and we're expecting them to be heavily democratic right now, In just the ballot request, the Democrats have an eight million Excuse me, 800,000. A ballot lead among registered Democrats registered Republicans. That's highly unusual. Usually we see it the other way around. But here we are with big numbers of Democrats requesting male about and then their return rates are higher than the Republicans as well. So that's another dynamic. So we expect these mail ballots when they first get dumped to be very pro Biden That does not necessarily mean that he wins the election because that in person, early vote, but really the in person. Election day vote will be heavily Republican. And what's gonna have to feel that this balancing act and we're going to see where the state ends up on balance after we get all those votes, But we will probably know fairly quickly unless there's any election snack foods on processing the balanced on election day. Like a machine breaks somewhere someplace like that. We should know. Very quickly on election night, maybe by midnight or so, who's won Florida? So as you say, Professor, this is a terribly important point because we've heard about the so called Red Mirage and people particularly focused on Pennsylvania, where the phenomenon may work the other way. Where you get the first recording of people actually going in about place and voting that may go actually Republican. But then the absentee ballots come in later and goes Democrat that was called the Red Mirage. What you're describing in Florida, you could call the Blue Mirage. You could have the result reverse where the initial results are heavily in favor of the former vice president Biden and then later They come in for Trump. So at the same time, these campaigns are going to be wanted. Declare victory Pretty early on. Yeah, tongue in cheek said by not a clear victory of species of numbers and have trumped and say, Oh, you gotta count all the ballots and say, Yeah, yeah, I think we should do that. But, yeah, just everybody, we're all gonna have to take a deep breath. First get those first numbers out there going to be so skewed. They're going to be so unusual from past patterns just you know what's way to see everything else. It's out there before we start jumping to conclusions about what's happening with the election, but from another perspective. Once we get Florida and then once we get some of these other fast counting states and on election night, we're gonna have a good read if Biden if the polls are correct, and Biden is leading in Florida. You'll like we will be able to call Florida for Biden on Election night again. The post could be wildly wrong and you know all the other stuff. But if if everything is what we think it is. Then you know Biden gets Florida and it makes it really tough for Trump to win the electoral college and we'll get a read on the national swing from the states. Even if they're not a battleground state. They're fast reporting state will get the National swing from that, and then we might know something about those swell reporting states. What's going on with them? Thanks to Professor Michael McDonald of the University of Florida Coming up. We continue our swing states, Siri's leading up to the election with a candidate for Congress in a key central Florida.

"Early than ever before, way more at 2.5 weeks before Election Day, Some states are already up to a third of their total turnouts from 2016. That's being driven by absentee ballot expansion all over the country because of the pandemic and a surge of in person early voting, But not everything has gone smoothly. We've seen long lines in Georgia and Texas and tens of thousands of mistakes with mail ballots. Joining us now to talk about all of this is NPR's Miles parks who covers voting. Hey, miles high there. So just how big has the early voting this year? It's been huge, more than 17. Million people have voted already, according to this database compiled by University of Florida professor Michael McDonald, and it's hard to really overstate how unprecedented that is. You know, it's about five times as many people who had voted at the same time in the 2016 cycle. Target smart. This data firm that works with Democrats has done some analysis on the initial numbers has been significantly more Democrats than Republicans, which isn't that surprising when you consider you know the sort of rhetoric President Trump specifically is used about vote by mail, But there are also some other interesting trends. You know, we're seeing more than seven times as many African American voters at this point now, as opposed to 2016 Which seems to be driven by this increase in early voting access in states with higher black populations like North Carolina, Georgia and Virginia. That's interesting. Well, we have been seeing pictures of these long lines at many of these early polling places. Can you talk about how smoothly the vote has been going so far? Yeah, There's clearly been some hiccups with in person and with vote by mail options, it seems like computer problems have contributed to a lot of the in person delays that people have seen photos off in Georgia. The database used to check people in was slowed down because of all of this traffic on the website. There were similar stories in Texas Houston Public Media's Elizabeth Tro Vel spoke to a voter named Renee, who spent nearly four hours in line going to three different precincts. I cry. I frankly think it's a form of voter suppression. There's no way there should be a glitch on the first day of early voting. No way and then you're gonna tell me I gotta one place and they say it's the printer. Come over here. This is the printer. Then they said the main system I've just never seen anything like this ever. You know this is a tough problem for election officials. Obviously, no one should have to wait that long to vote. But we also knew the pandemic, combined with potentially historic turnout would be in some problems for in person. Voting and lines do usually get better, I should say after the first couple days of early voting the wait times in Gwinnett County, Georgia, for instance, which was showing waits at 234 hours earlier this week on its online tracker today, when you look it was mostly under an hour. Well, what about voting by mail? I mean, a lot of people have been worried about the post office handling so many ballots are those concerns justified so far. Yeah, I mean, we've seen a lot of administrative errors, reports of administrative errors with the absentee balloting. Just yesterday in Pennsylvania, Allegheny County announced that 28,000 voters got mailed the wrong ballots, but it's also important to realize scale. We're talking about thousands of ballots, but 80 million ballots have been requested nationwide. Here's former deputy Postmaster general Ron Stroman. Despite some of those concerns, things were going at this point I'm reasonably well, Stroman said. It's important to remember that if you're hearing about a mistake at this point in the election, like in Allegheny County, for instance, officials realized their errors early enough to send out new ballots and fix the problems.

You know, it's about five times as many people who had voted at the same time in the 2016 cycle. Target smart. This data firm that works with Democrats has done some analysis on the initial numbers has been significantly more Democrats than Republicans, which isn't that surprising when you consider you know the sort of rhetoric President Trump specifically is used about vote by mail, But there are also some other interesting trends. You know, we're seeing more than seven times as many African American voters at this point now, as opposed to 2016 Which seems to be driven by this increase in early voting access in states with higher black populations like North Carolina, Georgia and Virginia. That's interesting. Well, we have been seeing pictures of these long lines at many of these early polling places. Can you talk about how smoothly the vote has been going so far? Yeah, There's clearly been some hiccups with in person and with vote by mail options, it seems like computer problems have contributed to a lot of the in person delays that people have seen photos off in Georgia. The database used to check people in was slowed down because of all of this traffic on the website. There were similar stories in Texas Houston Public Media's Elizabeth Tro Vel spoke to a voter named Renee, who spent nearly four hours in line going to three different precincts. I cry.
