Democrats are particularly active in early voting, as they willingly take advantage of the opportunity to vote by mail. Many Republicans used to vote by mail, but this year their stance has changed amid Trump’s claims that mail-order voting is susceptible to falsification..

Due to the increased interest of voters in early voting, a professor at the University of Florida and the head of the U.S. Elections Project Michael McDonald predicts a record turnout of about 150 million, or 65 percent of eligible voters, the highest since 1908.
