Early Voting Just Weeks Away

September 8, 2012, 7:08 AM by Perry Groten

Early Voting Just Weeks Away
DES MOINES, IA -

Election Day is nearly two months away, but thanks to early voting people can begin casting ballots in less than three weeks.  

Iowa's Sept. 27 start to early voting in-person or by mail is among the first in the nation.  

Only three other states allow voters to cast ballots in person earlier - Idaho, South Dakota and Vermont. Wyoming also begins Sept. 27.   Another 26 states allow in-person early voting to begin in October, including Nebraska on Oct. 1.  

North Carolina is the first state to accept absentee ballots by mail. It started Sept. 6.  

Michael McDonald, a George Mason University professor, says campaign organizers like early voting because it lets them focus their efforts in precise ways not possible with voters who cast a ballot on Election Day.
