NO EARLY VOTING
Missouri does not offer an early voting period. If you will be unable to vote in person on Election Day, you can request an absentee ballot/mail-in ballot by mail or by visiting your local election office – beginning on Sept 22.
Mississippi does not offer early voting. In Mississippi, the only “early” votes are absentee ballots that are available beginning 45 days before an election, but only for specific excused reasons including the voters knowing that they’ll be out of their home county on Election Day or disability or voters past age 65. College students and members of the armed forces can often vote absentee ballots.
Always check your state and county websites for specific information about voting times and voting locations.
Remember, if you vote – in person or drop it off or put it in the mail – stop by and post a comment in the I Voted post. It’s in the sidebar on computers and in the hamburger menu on mobile.
If you know the first date for early voting, and your state isn’t on one of these lists yet, please let me know in the comments.
