2020 early voting is on-track to break records

Early voting polling sites in WNY report steady flow and lines in some location

BUFFALO, N.Y.  — The Associated Press is reporting that early voting across the nation has now surpassed all those who voted early in 2016 when Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton were facing off for the presidency.

President Trump is now facing a challenge from former Vice-President Joe Biden and the contest is generating voter turnout unlike anything seen in recent years. Some are estimating that total votes placed could set a new record for early voting, when all is done, at 100 million early votes.

In WNY, Board of Elections commissioners indicate that turnout is higher than expected with lines in some places.

Early voting continues in New York State until Sunday, November 1.

 

ERIE COUNTY - 26,200 early voters at 37 sites.
