More than 2 million people in Massachusetts have already voted ahead of Election Day.

More people have already cast ballots in this year’s presidential election than voted early or absentee in the 2016 race.

NewsChannel 13’s affiliate in Springfield spoke with Northampton City Clerk Pam Powers. She said despite a low turnout right now, she expects it to pick up.

“It’s not as busy as we thought it would be, but it could pick up by the end of the week because as you know, Friday is the last day to vote early in person,” Powers said. "We have about 10,000 requests in for vote by mail ballots and about 8,000 of those have already been returned."

If you taking part in early voting, you have until Nov. 3 to have their ballots postmarked.
