To get the information you need about exactly how early voting works in your state, you can Google your state + “early voting” or click on your state name at this roster of all of the secretaries of state. It’ll take you to your state’s Elections website and you can search for early voting from there.

For a quick overview of how early voting works in your state, the National Conference of State Legislatures has a cool interactive map, and when you hover over your state, the basics of how early voting works pops up. Here’s a static look at that map:

For those of us who can, let’s vote early so we can spend the rest of our time getting out the vote with people who aren’t paying as much attention as we are. Good turnout is key to flipping seats all over the country!
