Early Voting Points To Possible Record Turnout, With New States In Play

More than 74 million people have already voted. Michael McDonald of the Florida Elections Project tells NPR that could indicate the U.S. is headed for record turnout in a modern election.

Maya King of POLITICO has been following the early vote in Georgia, where black voters came close to electing the nation’s first black female governor in 2018.

NPR’s Miles Parks and Pam Fessler explain why it may be too late to vote by mail — and how legal challenges are still complicating the rules around early voting in some states.

Additional reporting this episode from NPR’s Greg Allen and Barbara Sprunt; Stephen Fowler with Georgia Public Broadcasting and Jen Rice with Houston Public Media.
