More than 2.2 million voters by the Democratic Party in Florida have so far registered to voting by mail in the presidential election, 717,000 more than Republicans who have opted for voting by mail.

Florida Democratic Party President Terrie Rizzo welcomed this Friday the number of postal voting applicants reached when 43 days remain for the end of the deadline to apply.

“Democrats have seen significant increases in mail voting in the August primary, and we are prepared to keep our feet on the accelerator until November”

Rizzo said in a statement.

Requesting the ballot to be mailed does not necessarily mean voting, they nevertheless warn some political analysts in local media.

The Democratic Party has strongly defended voting by mail

In both the primary and presidential votes of November 3, voting by mail has strongly defended by The Democratic Party, as a way to prevent COVID-19 contagions, something President Donald Trump, a candidate for re-election, initially criticized as implying that those votes could be manipulated, but then ended up recommending especially in Florida.

The so-called “state of the sun” is one of those who can tilt the election result towards one or the other candidate when an election is held hostage as it is this year’s.

White House Democratic nominee Joe Biden takes 7.5 Trump’s national lead in voting intentions, according to the average made by the RealClearPolitics website, but in deciding states like Florida the difference narrows to 3.9 points.

The Democratic vice presidential candidate, Senator Kamala Harris, who visited Miami on Thursday, urged African-Americans and Latinos not to let the power to change the things the vote confers.

Harris urged them not to be overcome by the “obstacles” put on the road so that they would effectively suffer and recommended that they vote in advance, another of the voting options in Florida.

The latest polls in Florida indicate Biden is leading Trump, but he still has no secure position and must win more Latino and other votes to counter the president’s support between the white electorate in the center and north of the state.

The candidate who wins in Florida, a state that has no allegiance to either major party, receives 29 major votes at the electoral college, which is where the outcome of the presidential ones is ultimately decided.

In 2012 the winner in Florida was Democrat Barack Obama, but in 2016 the Trump Republican was, by a slight difference of 1.2 points over Democrat Hillary Clinton, who, while he had a higher number of votes than the current president in his favor across the country, failed to get enough at the polling station.

For next Tuesday, September 15, a visit from Biden to Florida has been announced, of which no details have yet been given.
