The new state that started early voting today is Wisconsin , which will begin mailing out ballots after declining to put Kanye West and the Green Party candidate Howie Hawkins on their Presidential ballot.
For those keeping track
Mailed out ballots:
North Carolina -9/4
Kentucky - 9/14
Wisconsin - 9/17
Began in-person early voting:
Pennsylvania - 9-14
And these 4 states have begun this process without the benefit of having a single presidential debate beforehand.
It should be noted that President Trump requested multiple times to have the debate schedule moved up, but his opponent and the debate commission both declined to accommodate his requests.
For those who at this late date haven’t decided who they are voting for, they certainly have the option of watching as many debates as they need to in order to make their decision and then vote. For others like myself who already know how we want to vote, it’s nice to be able to go ahead and take care of it.
It’s nice to have options. No need to wait 47 days when I’ve already made my decision. Now I can just sit back and relax on Election Day instead of social distancing in a long line waiting to vote. Win/win.
