GOP early voting advocates Scott Presler and Dr. Mark Campbell predict that the elections in Kentucky and Virginia are going to set the stage for early voting in the 2024 election. 

"You'll be happy to know that early voting is up amongst Republicans, as is voting by mail in all its various forms," Virginia political strategist Dr. Campbell said on the Tuesday edition of the "Just the News, No Noise" TV show.

"I think it's going very, very well," he added. "But let's be very, very clear. If we take Virginia, it's because of Governor Glenn Youngkin and his incredible work raising money, campaigning."

Virginia GOP Gov. Glenn Youngkin has embraced early voting ahead of the state's 2023 Senate elections in an effort to match and surpass Democrats who have used that balloting method in recent election cycles to win races.

Founder and executive director of Early Vote Action, Scott Presler said that early voting helped GOP Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry win the governor's race.

"We already had success earlier this year," he said. "On Saturday, October 14, we elected governor-elect Jeff Landry on day one, with over 50% of the vote. And in part, we won early voting 44% to 41% when it was the inverse for Democrats four years ago."

Presler predicted that more and more Republicans will start getting on board with early voting.

"We have already shown as a party that we are evolving," he continued. "We are getting people on board. And I'm hopeful that after people see the success that we have today, it's going to only encourage more people to lock in their votes early so we can defeat Joe Biden next year."
