I just voted in Jamestown Township Michigan. When I arrived the parking lot was full. I was voter number 562 and cast my ballot a little before 2 pm. A person working the polls said turnout was steady all day, which was confirmed also by a man in line who drove by the polling place earlier that morning.
There were roughly 20 people voting as I left with a healthy stream of people coming and going. Assuming by 2:00 PM, 575 people voted…
|Jamestown TWP P1||Republican||Democrat||Other||Total|
|2018 Turnout @ 2PM||575|
Given those numbers, we can estimate that turnout in this precinct will exceed 2016:
|Polls opened for 7 hours so far||Votes per hour (7 hrs / 575 votes)||82.14|
|Total hours polls open (7am to 8pm)||13 hours|
|Predicted Turnout||(13 hrs x 82.14 voters per hr)||1068|
At least in this small sample, it looks like Trumps base is coming out in force!
