Ok, so I did a deep dive in to the early vote data from @TargetSmart. Disclaimer: I didn't collect this data - I'm just analyzing it.

My big takeaway compared to this point in 2016:
- Turnout from voters under 30 is up 77% in Benton Co., up 48% in Washington Co.
I made a couple of visualizations. This one shows % increase for youth turnout for counties with an increase, sorted from most to least:

Next is Under 30 turnout with a side-by-side comparison of 2016 vs. 2020. I pre-selected Washington, Benton, and Pulaski counties just for fun.

Here's the raw with 2016 vs. 2020:
Benton: 4647 8226
Washington: 8167 9666
Pulaski: 5635 8309

This viz shows % increase/decrease in turnout for voters of all ages up to this point. Some of the county data is off. For example, I took off White Co cuz its 2016 data was clearly wrong. Again, I'm just analyzing the available data, not collecting it.

Here's the side-by-side of 2016 vs. 2020 for all voters up to this point in the election cycle.

I pre-selected Benton, Wash, and Pulaski, but you can change it whatever.

2016 vs. 2020:
Benton: 48,779 72,565
Wash: 36,491 53,354
Pulaski: 67,861 93,420

Preface: I'm fine.
Tweet: I spent yesterday in the Covid ER at Washington Regional. What I saw was a well-oiled machine. My nurse and ER doc were amazing despite: Almost constant arrival of ambulances. Frequent calls about transfers. ER rooms full. But total calm.
No one wants to be in a Covid ER. I balked until my doc very strongly insisted. I envisioned a scene like Italy. People on the floors, in the hallways. It was nothing like that.

Immediate triage and room placement. I didn't see another patient until I was leaving.
In that moment, my heart broke. It was a man, looked like in his 60's, white as a sheet, being wheeled on a bed. He was clearly struggling for breath. He looked scared.

Whoever he is, he's one of 667 hospitalized Arkansans. And he's one of us - a neighbor with a worried family.
