    16% other? What would cause people who vote for third party candidates to be so heavily represented in early voting?

    These are stats by party registration. Other means neither Republican nor Democrats, but either no party or a minor party.

    We don’t get to know how the votes came out until after the polls close. Repeat, these are not election returns, just info about who voted.

    Now the question is: Did more Democrats vote for McCain, than Republicans voted for Obama?

    somehow I doubt it, despite the PUMAs.
