With early voting underway in 35 states, the 2012 presidential election is officially underway! While the current majority of early voting is taking place via absentee ballot, seven states already have in-person polling stations up and running.

With just weeks to go before November 6th, it’s critical that nonprofits keep this election in the spotlight. Use your communications to share election information, deadlines, and reminders.

In 2008 about 33% of votes were cast before Election Day and in 2012 that number could top 40%. Learn about early voting options–both in-person and by mail–in your state. Request your absentee ballot.

Although balloting is underway, voters can still register to vote in most states. Check your state’s registration deadline and make sure your community is registered and ready to vote on (or before) November 6th!
