Early Voting Underway in Many States

In an earlier post, we spelled out the differences between early voting in person and early voting by mail. With November 2nd only five weeks away, some predict that at least one-third of the nation's ballots will be cast before Election Day.

Voting is already underway in seven states, and will begin in Arizona, California and Illinois in the next two weeks. (Incidentally, groups in Illinois launched a "Vote Naked Illinois" campaign to inform voters of changes in voting law that now allow Illinois citizens to vote early.)

The Early Voting Information Center (EVIC) has created a calendar that tracks each state’s window for early voting. See it here.

70% of Americans are now able to take advantage of no-excuse early and absentee voting. Check out this New York Times graphic that breaks down the percentage of ballots cast before Election Day in 2006 and 2008.
