The campaign of Hillary Clinton is pushing early voting in the battleground states of Nevada, North Carolina and Florida – hoping to "build an insurmountable lead" that would block Donald Trump's path to the White House, The Hill reported.
In remarks to reporters Thursday, Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook
said the results from those states could make a difference in an Electoral College advantage even before Election Day.
"We are encouraging supporters to cast their vote early because it is possible . . . that we could build an insurmountable lead in those key states before Election Day," Mook said, per The Hill.
Mook estimated 40 percent of votes in those battleground states could be cast before Election Day.
"So that's why we're not just encouraging everyone to vote and to make sure they vote, but to take advantage of early voting," he said.
The Clinton campaign said it expects the election to break voting records.
"We talk about making history on this campaign — becoming the first woman president — but this election will also be historic because it will be the biggest election in our history," Mook said, per The Hill.
"We are certain that more voters are going to cast ballots in this election than any in our nation's history."
The 2008 election holds the record for turnout, with 131 million voters, according to The Hill.
