The unprecedented wave of early voting continued on Tuesday, as crowds in Milwaukee waited for more than two hours to cast their ballots on the first day of early voting in Wisconsin.

A day earlier, a record 366,436 Floridians voted in their state’s first day of in-person early voting, according to data collected by the United States Elections Project.

According to Michael P. McDonald, a professor of political science at the University of Florida, collected early data showing that registered Democrats in Florida by far outnumbered their Republican counterparts. “This is a dynamic we’re seeing elsewhere, too,” McDonald said.

Early voting has drawn crowds across the country, and record numbers of mail-in ballots also are being cast.
