Demographic Analysis of Virginia 10/17/21 - Watch the Red to Blue Cites & Counties

It is Monday, October 18th, 2021 and we are 16 days from election day in the Commonwealth of Virginia.  As of 10/17/2021, 411,774 Virginians have voted early or absentee and that is 7.32% of eligible voters in the Commonwealth. Today we have taken a look at some of the red to blue flip cities & counties.  We continue to see growth in the Democratic electorate overall but in Prince William County and the City of Chesapeake we are seeing Republicans by small percentages currently leading in turnout.

The Commonwealth of Virginia does not have party identification by voter registration in the voter file.  So, in a state like Virginia, L2 models party ID by primary ballot selection and L2 modeling. If you have questions regarding this, please feel free to send us an email, a tweet.
