Election Day isn’t until November 4, but thanks to early voting rules, some voters have already cast their ballots. A couple of counties in Virginia and Kentucky allowed voting late last week, and voting begins in Georgia today.
At least 34 states and the District of Columbia will allow early voting this year, compared to ten years ago, when only a few states offered early voting options. In 2004, 20% of voters made their choice before Election Day, and this year that number could be as high as 30%. In closely contested states like Colorado, Nevada and New Mexico as many as 50% of voters could vote early.
Colleges are also getting in on the action -- Duke has an early-voting center that opens October 16 after the third presidential debate. The first debate will take place on Friday, September 26 at 9 PM.
