The scale of vote-by-mail (VBM) is still not fully appreciated among many observers.
Right now, over 1 in 5 Florida voters have requested a ballot for the primary election. Looking more closely, in 11 counties, over 1 in 4 voters have requested a ballot.
The population of VBM requestors skews older, with 56 percent of requestors over 60, compared to just 37 percent of the total voter population. As a result, the counties with the largest retirement populations lead in VBM requests and returns.
Nearly 328,600 ballots have been returned.
