According to a source who tracked mail-in-ballots daily in 2014, there were 2,012 received after 24 days, which means that 76% of the ballots received in the 2014 election have been received at this point in 2018.According to the OCSE, 766 (49.8%) of the ballots received are from registered Republicans, while 513 (33.36%) are from Democrats, and 259 (16.84%) are listed as “other” or no affiliation.In the 2014 Apopka Mayoral general election, 47.8% (2,372) of the electorate voted by mail, while 52.2% (2,589) voted the day of the election, and Republicans outdistanced Democrats at the polls 49.64%-33.17%, with “other” and no affiliation making up 17.17% of the electorate.For a look at the Supervisor of Elections video about voting by mail, go to “Get ready.
