Early Voting Calendar

Last updated on October 9, 2018

What is Early Voting?

Early voting takes place in person before Election Day. You don’t need an excuse to vote early — you can vote early even if you are capable of voting at the polls on Election Day. Most states offer early voting at this point.

What if your state doesn’t offer early voting?
