Georgia Senate Runoff: Early Voting (Day 6)

Here are the numbers for Monday.



The one thing that we can say for sure is that turnout has increased each day that early voting has been going, topping 85,000 on Monday. Despite the growth the patterns remain virtually unchanged along racial lines. African Americans continue to comprise 22% of early voters. The one thing that has consistently changed since last Monday when early voting began on a wider scale (There were two counties that began on the Friday before.) is that the share of early voters that are women has increased. Again, the 52% level women are at as of Monday is about four points lower than in the general election early voting, but still much higher than the 48% on that first day.

Tomorrow morning I'll have the usual update but will follow it up with an examination of county-level early voting.

I had no idea SNL did Senate runoffs.

I didn't think it was funny at all, but if it help's Martin, I'll take it.

SNL's like the rest of us: Trying to hang on to the success the election brought them. At least they have some success in other circles. FHQ? Not so much.

I don't know Jack. I liked it. But I'm a fan of "name" comedy. Not quite to the level that I like maps, but still. Their "Zell" wasn't nearly angry enough.
