New and Unlikely Republican Voters Edging Out Democrats in Returned Vote-By-Mail Ballots

Vote-by-mail (VBM) ballot returns are running neck and neck among likely voters (those who have voted in three or all of the last four primary elections) in both parties, with both Democrats and Republicans posting 10 percent return rates. Among those who have voted in two of the last four primary elections, Democrats and Republicans are both running at 8 percent returns.

However, Republicans have a slight edge among new and low propensity voters, with the GOP posting a 5 percent return rate versus 4 percent for the Democrats.

Of the more than 2.6 million VBM ballots requested, 182,513, or 7.19 percent, have been returned.
