According to the tally from the U.S. Elections Project on Wednesday, early votes this year have already surpassed half the total votes cast in the entire 2016 presidential election.
Of the early votes, more than 25 million Americans have marked their ballot papers in person, while nearly 50 million voted by mail.

In addition, according to a recent survey conducted by CNN, Edison Research and Catalist, some 35-percent of registered voters have already cast early ballots as of Wednesday afternoon.
Currently,.. the top three states with the highest percentage for early voting are Montana, Washington state, and Colorado,… with more than 50-percent of registered voters casting ballots in all three states.


So far, the early votes show that registered Democrats have outpaced Republicans in mail-in votes.
However, it is too early to come to any conclusions as President Trump is seeing a slight uptick in his recent polls.
