Status of Mail-In Absentee NC Ballots as of 9-15-16

Here are today's numbers of mail-in absentee ballots requested and accepted as of 9-15-16:

A total of over 45,000 ballots have been requested, and 44,680 are still outstanding, with registered Democrats being 37 percent of those outstanding ballots, 35 percent from registered Republicans, and 28 percent from registered unaffiliated voters.

Among accepted ballots:

Currently, registered Democratic accepted mail-in ballots are running 132 percent ahead of the same day in 2012, registered unaffiliated accepted mail-in ballots are 170 percent ahead of 2012's same-day numbers, and registered Republicans are 81 percent of their 2012 same-day numbers.

Again: it's is TOO EARLY to make a definitely claim about these trend lines. Be cautious in over-interpretation with less than a week of mail-in ballots accepted.
