People are so eager to vote this political season that 50 percent more voters cast ballots early during this year’s primary elections than they did just two years ago during the last mid-term primaries, USA Today reported.

Almost 6 million voted early in this year’s primaries in 13 states reviewed, including in the voter-rich states of California, Florida, and Texas. The popularity of early voting is causing candidates and their supporters to reach out even earlier before the Nov. 2 election. People are already voting in 14 states.

“You need to be talking to these people now,’’ said Max Fose, an aide to Arizona GOP House candidate Paul Gosar. Early voting began today in Arizona.

The survey of the 13-state early voting showed that 2 million more people voted this primary season than in 2006 when 4 million showed up early.

The early voting trend is causing political groups to change with the times. American Crossroads, a GOP group created with the help of strategist Karl Rove, is mailing notices to remind people about early voting in West Virginia where there’s a close U.S. Senate race.
