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". Others are mailing out ballots in advance which you can mail back or drop off in secure boxes or at county offices. Some states conclude early voting several days before the election.
This site attempts to make finding the details for your state's early voting rules convenient and accurate. Get your vote in early and relax.
It is now possible to vote early in South Carolina! Legislation was signed into law on September 16, 2020, that makes significant changes to absentee voting rules for the November 3, 2020 General Election.
