Vince Vasquez, a senior analyst at National University's Think Tank says these older Republicans are shrinking but still out-performing Democrats.
"They make up less half the electorate. We're looking at maybe 35% to 40%, but in both of these races they're over 70% of the ballots that have been cast," said Vasquez.
More than 800,000 have been sent out, and as of Thursday, 143,000 have been returned, and they show Republicans continuing to lead in mail ballots turned in.
"For them to be continuing to hold the lead so far, this close to the election is actually good news for Chris Cate and Carl DeMaio," said Vasquez.
