To put those numbers in context: Nearly 63 percent of the ballots requested so far were by Democrats, although they make up only about 45 percent of the electorate.
Among the unaffiliated voters, 7,054 asked for Democratic ballots, 1,433 asked for Republican ballots and 1,297 asked for unaffiliated ballots.The unaffiliated ballot only has judgeships and local nonpartisan races.
