A majority of Americans say they prefer to vote before Election Day, according to a new poll. 

A Washington Post-University of Maryland poll released Thursday shows:

  • 61% of Americans say they prefer to vote before Election Day.
  • 38% of Americans say they would rather vote on Election Day.
  • 52% of Americans say they feel comfortable going to a polling place to vote amid the coronavirus pandemic.
  • 47% of Americans say they are uncomfortable voting in person.

Of those surveyed who voted in 2016, 41% said they voted before Election Day and 58% said they cast their ballot on Election Day.

Officials predict more people will vote by mail in the upcoming November election amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The survey was conducted by Ipsos and polled 1,929 Americans between Aug. 24-31. The margin of error is 2.5 percentage points.
