in Statewide by

The number of vote-by-mail ballots requested for the November general election has surpassed 1.8 million.

The tally, as of Thursday, is 1,832,276, according to the state’s Division of Elections

That includes ballots mailed by Florida elections supervisors to service members and others outside the country.

Registered Republicans lead Democrats by 790,831 to 684,410, a gap of 106,421.

Other party voters are at 45,022 and no-party-affiliated voters are at 312,013.

So far, 28 ballots have been reported returned as voted: 16 from Democrats, nine from Republicans, and three from no-party-affiliated voters.

Lawmakers recently changed the name of such ballots to “vote-by-mail” ballots from the traditional “absentee” ballots.
