Our absentees went out in the mail Monday!! Vote early if you can so you can GOTV on election day. I'll be phonebanking to do my bit.
(CNN) – Hours ahead of the presidential debate on Monday, millions of voters across the country will have the chance to cast their ballots when early voting opens in Arkansas, Colorado, Texas, Wisconsin, Alaska and the District of Columbia.
Nevada began early voting on Saturday, a day after Washington state, bringing the early voting total to 29 states and the District of Columbia.
As of Monday, early voting will take place in six of the nine battleground states identified on CNN's Electoral Map - Colorado, Iowa, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio and Wisconsin. Only Virginia and New Hampshire don't allow voters to cast ballots early without an excuse, such as being out of town on Election Day. Early voting in Florida begins next weekend.
Approximately 35% to 40% of eligible voters are expected to cast their vote before Election Day, according to early voting experts. That's 5% to 10% more than those who voted early in 2008.
