Election Day is November 2, Right?
Not if You are an Absentee Voter.
Voting has never been easier! Starting this Labor Day, September 6, 2004, voters in almost every state in the United States will have the opportunity to register for absentee ballots. States have made it easier to register as an absentee voter to encourage voting in this and future elections.
Absentee voting is an easy and flexible way to vote. It allows you to participate in the election when it is most convenient for you. Most states give you the option to vote as early as two weeks prior to November 2, however, in select states you can vote even earlier — late September to early October through November 2. Application processes and regulations differ from state to state, but in many states you can permanently register for an absentee ballot so that you never have to go to the polls again! Applications are about one page and take five or less minutes to fill out.
