Definitions:

EARLY VOTING (EV): Early voting usually refers to voting that takes place at specially designated early voting sites inside a voting booth.

IN-PERSON ABSENTEE VOTING (IPA):  In-person absentee voting usually refers to going through the absentee balloting process in-person at a local election office.

While these two terms are often used interchangeably to refer to any voting done in-person before election day - most states only use one or the other.
