Early voting numbers continue to climb. With just over a week before the election, over 59-million people have voted early. That’s over 42-percent of the total number of people who voted in 2016. Most of those have been mail-in ballots. Texas is leading the charge in early voting with over seven-million ballots cast already. Nearly 240 million citizens are eligible to vote in this year’s election, according to the U.S. Elections Project.
