And your bonus: Early voting.
To the best of our knowledge, around a third of ballots cast in the 2008 presidential election were cast by a method other than the traditional Election Day polling station. This number comes from extensive efforts to aggregate state-, county-, and township-level data on the 2008 presidential election.
11 states have now reached above the 50% early voting threshold: Tennessee, Nevada, Colorado, Washington, and Oregon have received more than half their ballots via these alternative methods since 2006; Arizona, Florida, Georgia, New Mexico, North Carolina, and Texas joined them in 2008.
Early voting is happening in 28 (+) states. Find out where to cast an early ballot.
