Early voting: Every day is Election Day

October 30, 2012 | By Jim Stovall | Filed in: news, Voting.

The New York Times has a roundup of early voting around the country and how it has changed the pace of elections:

Nearly 15 million people have voted so far, according to Michael P. McDonald, an associate professor of government and politics at George Mason University who keeps tabs on early voting. He said that the pace of early voting this year suggested that 35 percent or more of all votes could be cast before Election Day, surpassing the previous record in 2008, when 30 percent voted early. “Both registered Democrats and registered Republicans are voting at clips that are outpacing their 2008 levels,” he said.

Every day, now, is Election Day.
