As Election Day nears, a majority of voters say they are more likely to wait until the last moment before they cast their vote, according to poll by Rasmussen Reports.
- Vote before Election Day: 40 percent;
- Wait for Election Day: 56 percent.
Ahead of the 2014 midterm elections, a poll revealed that 52 percent of voters said they would wait for Election Day.
The survey also showed that while 47 percent of Democrats were more likely to vote early, if their state allowed to do so, 36 percent of Republicans and 34 percent of voters not affiliated with either major party are likely to vote early.
Forty-eight percent of Democrats still plan to wait until Election Day this year, which is up by 4 percent from 2014.
When polled on how much time should be allotted for early voting, most voters said two weeks is the farthest in advance people should be allowed to vote.
According to the poll, 61 percent went with maximum of two weeks, which includes 30 percent who say only one week is best. While 26 percent were in favor of early voting being possible a month before Election Day, 6 percent believe it should be extended for more than a month.
The survey, which was conducted on Sept. 28-29, had 1,000 likely voters as respondents. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points.
