    If either candidate stumbles at Tuesday’s debate, they can take solace in the fact that it won’t affect nearly 1 million votes. As of Sunday, more than 944,000 people have cast their ballots through mail-in and early voting, according to data compiled by University of Florida professor Michael McDonald, an expert on voting. In a post, he called the number “jaw-dropping.” “Nearly a million voters this far in advance of an election has never occurred in any American election. Period,” he wrote. McDonald credited the surge in early voting to changes in state laws that make it easier in states like Virginia, to concerns over the coronavirus and to intense voter interest in the presidential campaign. But whatever the cause, the surge in early votes will also change the contours of the election, diminishing the potential impact of a so-called “October surprise” or last-minute piece of news that upends the race.
