ELECTION: Americans are Voting in Record Numbers


Americans have heard the call to vote and are turning up at the polls -- and mailing in their ballots -- in record numbers.

According to an analysis of voting information from the U.S. Elections Project, a record 14 million Americans have already voted. More than 2 million have already voted in swing states, such as Florida.

Florida Democratic strategist Steve Schalecsaid told Politico, "The numbers are pretty staggering for us and the return rates and the polling look good. But there's just a lot we don't know."

Political analyst Roland Martin posted on Instagram that he's been moved to tears by the number of people voting in the election in Texas. (The Guardian)
