Nearly nine in ten of the nation’s liberal voters who are able to vote early in their states say they are likely to do so, a new Rasmussen Poll finds.
In the national survey of 1,000 U.S. likely voters conducted October 12-13, 2020, 82% reported that early voting is available in their states, with little difference between self-identified ideological conservatives, moderates and liberals.
When those who said they could cast their ballots early were asked if they were “more likely to vote early,” rather than “wait until Election Day,” about two-thirds (65%) said they plan to do so. Thirty-three percent (33%) said they are more likely to wait until November 3 to vote. Another two percent said they’re not sure.
Liberals were much more likely than those who identified as conservatives to say they’ll vote early. Nearly nine of ten (85%) of liberals plan to vote before Election Day, compared to 63% of moderates and 57% of conservatives.
The survey found similar results when respondents were identified by party affiliation, with 79% of Democrats, 52% of Republicans and 62% of other party affiliations likely to vote prior to November 3.
