The state Division of Elections did an accounting of the votes and determined there have been 1,782,663 mail-in ballots cast in total -- 905,065 of which were sent in by Democrats and 520,712 by Republicans.
An additional 336,768 ballots were cast by voters with no party affiliation, while third-party voters accounted for 20,118.
More than 3.8 million additional mail-in ballots were sent out to state voters and have not been returned, according to the Division of Elections.
This news comes amidst a public and protracted battle between Republicans and Democrats, over the legitimacy and efficacy of mail-in voting.
Democrats argue it would give those who are concerned about the coronavirus an easier opportunity to make their voices heard, while the GOP and President Trump believe the mail-in system is chaotic -- leaving elements of the election vulnerable to manipulation, ballot harvesting, and fraud.
Florida election supervisors will be opening up early-voting sites next week, as an alternative for Floridians who wish to cast their ballots before Nov. 3.
