With the fiasco of the last election, as well as all the numerous voter drives I've seen, I'd be quite shocked if the turnout in this year's election wasn't much, much higher than it has been in past elections.
That just follows the trend of early voting.
Over the last decade, early voting has been made more accessable nationwide and has grown exponentially because of it.
I wouldn't put too much stock in it. These are the same stories that are recycled from the week before the 2000 election day.
