There are 11 days until the presidential elections in the United States and more than 50 million people have already voted. The figure represents 37% of the total votes in 2016. More than 6.3 million voters have exercised their right in Texas, which opened the polls for early voting on Monday. Another two million did so in the state of Florida, which enabled voting by mail last week. The balance of the vote has been tipped primarily by Democrats. The Florida figures showed that of the total votes 1.1 million correspond to people registered with the Democratic Party, while the Republicans have barely reached about 681,000 voters. Democrats began an intense campaign to mobilize the vote by mail since August, when Donald Trump accused, without proof, the postal service (USPS, for its acronym in English) of being fraudulent.
