2.6 Million Ballot Requests- A 7 Percent Increase

Vote-by-mail (VBM) requests currently stand at 2.6 million statewide – that’s a seven percent increase from the 2016 primary election.

The biggest growth in VBM requests have come from NPA/Other party affiliations. This group combines for an increase in 132,914 VBM requests. Democrat VBM requests have increased by 125,708, and Republicans are down 62,181 VBM requests.

The 2018 primary election could post record turnout when all ballots are counted, and early and VBM ballots could account for 70 percent of all returns.
