Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm aware there are lots of different regulations in different states. I was just wondering do we have anything more than anecdotal evidence of who those standing in line for hours are/have voting for. You've got to be pretty enthusiastic/committed to stand in line for so long, and I was wondering do we have evidence whether GOP or DEM voters have the greater enthusiasm to vote this cycle.

It's hard to tell given that so few states publish demographic breakouts.

In NC, it looks like vote-by-mail numbers skew heavily white and Democratic, while in-person early voting is skewing more African-American but with more Republicans showing up, although the Dems are still showing up in much higher numbers.

Strangely, in Georgia, we're not really seeing that split on racial lines though.  No idea what would drive that.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.

Generally speaking minority precincts have much fewer voting machines than white precincts.
