MIAMI (CBSMiami) — More than 1.1 million Floridians have already voted by absentee ballot in the past month, which amounts to regular-season play in the contact sport of Florida politics.
The GOP is the top seed, edging Democrats by 5 percentage points in casting absentee ballots, which are typically mailed in.
CBS4 news partner The Miami Herald reports the playoffs started Saturday morning with in-person early voting, which runs through Nov. 3. And that’s when Democrats — already narrowing the absentee-ballot gap with Republicans — typically excel.
