Final figures will be known later, but state elections officials state more than 88,000 votes were cast on Thursday, the highest daily total of eight days of early voting. Around 382,000 votes were cast over the eight-day period. This year's total is more than 40% lower than the early voting total of four years ago. Officials expected the lower in-person turnout due to more people voting by mail. The early voting turnout represents more than 8% of the state's registered voters. Early voting concluded at 8 p.m. on Thursday. Election Day will take place on Nov. 8.
