It looks like the total could easily get up towards or past a million early votes.

Total turnout in 2014 was 2,446,279 votes.

See Has advance voting gone too far?

Advance voting can now be counted from 9 am on election day, so there should be a lot of the votes counted ready to be announced soon after 7 pm. Last election I think advance votes had similar percentages to the final vote, so we may have a good idea of which way the result will go not long after 7 pm.
