Why Wait? You Might Be Able to Vote Today!

By Suzanne Ito, ACLU at 6:00pm

All the pundits have their countdown clocks set: Only 28 days left until Election Day! But in most states — 32, to be exact — you can vote early. The timing is different from state-to-state; for example, early voting started in Vermont on September 20, but won't begin in West Virginia until October 13. The end-dates also differ: early voting might close before Election Day, but in some states, it can go all the way through November 2.

So avoid the crazy Election Day lines, and go to your Secretary of State's website now to find out if you can vote early. When you're done casting your vote, tell everyone on Facebook with this nice button. And check www.aclu.org/voter for more voting resources.
