With Election Day just around the corner, there are already opportunities for CTE advocates to make their voices heard at the ballot box. Most states have methods for voters to cast their vote before Election Day through early in-person voting, absentee voting by mail or a combination of these options.
For example, all registered voters in Ohio are able to vote absentee by mail, which allows the voter to vote early from the convenience of home while avoiding the lines at the polls on Election Day. The state also provides for early in-person voting at designated locations in each county during regular business hours, as well as certain weekend hours, right up until November 7. Georgia’s early in-person voting begins today and runs through November 4. Early voting locations and hours vary by county in the state, but Georgia voters should mark October 29, on their calendars because it is the only Saturday where early voting must be available statewide. The Peach State also offers mail-in absentee ballots to all registered voters, which is currently underway.
It’s important to remember that every state runs its elections differently, so the details, deadlines and timeframes for early voting will vary from state to state. Find more information about your state through our partners at Nonprofit VOTE. You can also visit the Election Watch 2016 page on our website or the CTE Policy Watch Blog for more election coverage.
