Between early voting and mail-in, more than 150,000 people have cast ballots so far just in Palm Beach County.

Just the 66,176 Palm Beach County early voters, reported through Thursday by the Supervisor of Elections, represent more than half of the 124,896 who voted early in 2012.

Statewide, according to the Florida Division of Elections, more than 2.86 million used one of the two pre-Election Day options as of Friday morning.

Of mail-ins submitted statewide, Republicans still led Democrats 731,713 to 679,326, with “other” or “no party” voters accounting for the rest.

Of the 1.12 million Floridians who did early voting, GOP voters trailed Democrats 439,845 to 477,636.

Statewide figures show that for Palm Beach County, which leans Democrat, those voters led Republicans in submitted mail-ins 43,482 to 25,361.

In early voting — state figures don’t exactly match those posted locally — it was 18,741 Republican and 32,390 Democrat.
