IL sees jump in turnout for early voting

Abrams has repeatedly accused Kemp of suppressing voter rights to boost his own chance of winning

As of late Wednesday, McDonald's United States Elections Project estimates that 25.5 million Americans had cast early votes. The total early voting count in 2014 came out to 21,218,015. Reports show that more than 10% of voters have cast their ballots, which could surpass the early voter turnout we saw in 2014 over the next week. CNN's own analysis of a handful of seven critical states finds that women and older voters are performing their civic duty earlier in greater numbers in those states.

By comparison, 245,000 people voted early in the 2014 primary, which featured a contested U.S. Senate race and 235,000 people voted early in the 2015 gubernatorial primary.

In just the first week of early voting, election officials say more than 716,000 ballots were cast.
