U.S. voters have cast more than 47 million votes for the Nov. 3 presidential election, eclipsing total early voting from the 2016 election with 12 days to go, according to data compiled by the U.S. Elections Project.
Some 47.095 million Americans have turned in ballots, roughly eight times the number of early votes cast at about same point before the 2016 presidential contest, and just above the 47.015 million early votes that were cast before Election Day in 2016.
