Due to the COVID-19 crisis, many states are making vote-by-mail and early voting more widely available for the 2020 election season to ensure all voters may safely exercise their civil responsibility to vote. Early voting can be done by mail or in person. If more voters cast their ballots early, there are fewer last-minute problems that could prevent them from voting successfully. Early voting can also help to shorten lines and crowding on Election Day. Rules for early voting vary from state to state—and changes are still being made. The Vote Early Day 2020 website includes resources and links about early voting.
