“There’s also a partisan split in *when* people vote.”

WaPo:

Those two examples aside, it’s worth considering Wasserman’s assessment more broadly. Are Georgia and Florida simply outliers? Is it the case more broadly that early voting tends to favor the Democrat in a race more heavily?

Looking at last year, the answer is clearly “yes.”…

The more important implication is how it frames efforts to curtail early voting. If early voting is used more heavily by Democrats, it stands to reason that cutting early voting would reduce the number of Democrats who vote.

Which itself explains another manifestation of partisan polarization: opposition to early voting efforts by Republicans.
