The election may be weeks away, but many of you can take care of voting in the election early, and at your own convenience too! 32 states allow constituents to vote early in person with no excuse or explanation required by visiting the state’s election office or, in some states, satellite early voting locations. You can find out more, including which states allow early voting and how to participate, by clicking here.
Early voting is designed for your convenience. At least 12 of the 32 states which allow early voting also require the state election office to be opening at least one Saturday or Sunday during the early voting time period. As you know, voting is an important part of being a citizen and a special educator – it’s our job to educate AND participate!
