This year, Latinos are expected for the first time to be the nation's largest racial or ethnic minority in a U.S. presidential election, with a record 32 million projected to be eligible to vote. They will account for 13.3% of all eligible voters. However, the number of Latino eligible voters is still far below the 60 million Latinos who live in the country.

2018 GE 228M citizen question: the marginalia of "droves"
67% of citizens, 72% of all 2018 voters

12% of citizens, 9% of all 2018 voters
The mammoth figure is larger than the population of any other state except Texas. And at nearly 88%, California is enjoying its highest percentage of eligible voters registered for a general election in 80 years.
According to the U.S. Election Project, a database compiled by an elections expert at the University of Florida, 9.1 million Californians had returned their ballots as of Thursday, double the number in 2016.
Of the 22 million potential voters, 46% are registered Democrats, 24% are Republican and 24% have registered as no party preference.
Electoral college is not well understood.
Really the best bet against Trump trying to pull any shit is to win the states that will count early: Florida, North Carolina and Arizona should mostly be done on Election Night, as I understand it. Texas may be close enough to done that it can be called too, although obviously I'm less optimistic about Biden's chances there.
We should have a decent idea of how Florida's going to shake out by 8.30 or so on the East Coast, and it'll probably be called officially by 10.30 or so. Mail votes and early in-person votes are processed and counted ahead of time in Florida, so an enormous chunk of the vote will come in just after the polls close. Thereafter the count should be fairly quick.
Florida plus any non-Iowa swing state wins it.
Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
