The year 2020 has brought various things to the attention of the public. However, just like the previous years, the procedure for electing the president of the U.S. this year was the same. The only thing that stood out was the early voting, that too, surprisingly earlier than the early.
In the last few years, the common practice among people has always been to cast their votes rarely in the early voting and mostly on the election day. But this time, the tables seemed to take a turn, and by the time November 2 arrived, it was reported that around 94 million residents of the U.S. have already cast their votes using mail-in ballot boxes.
Whether it was a post-pandemic ramification or people avoiding any risk in this important event, this election received more than half of voters' responses in early voting. This also led to the deduction that this might be the only election to receive the greatest number of voters. The following infographic provides a comparative analysis between the years 2008, 2012, 2016, and 2020. It is evident from the chart that this year's election has not even stopped collecting votes yet, and already 94 million have played their part.
