More than 101 million Americans have voted early in the 2020 US election, according to the US elections project.

The US is on track to see highest voter turnout in more than century, the UK’s The Guardian has reported.

More than 101 million Americans have voted early in the 2020 US election, according to the US elections project.

Overal in the US, voters have now cast 73 per cent of the total votes counted in the 2016 general election.

The US is therefore on course to see some of the highest voter engagement since the early 1900s.

Michael P. McDonald, the University of Florida professor who compiles data for the Elections project forecasts an overall voter turnout rate of 67 per cent this year.
