Early absentee ballots flood in, signal major turnout on Election Day (Chesterfield Observer)

Stephen Farnsworth, a professor of political science at the University of Mary Washington, says he expects turnout to be strong for this election, but he’s surprised by Tyler’s assessment. Typically, midterm elections generate about two thirds of the voter turnout of a presidential election.

“It would be extraordinary if the 2018 turnout was anything near 2016. That doesn’t happen with [midterm] elections in this country,” Farnsworth said.
