With the election coming close, many already decided citizens are just waiting for their opportunity to vote. Fortunately, 40 states (plus District of Columbia) allow some form of voting before the election on November 3rd.
Each state has its own rules, deadlines and terminology for voting before the general election. Some call it "early voting" or "in-person absentee".
