Not all states have upcomming elections in 2021, and many of those that do have irregular dates for local elections (not November 2, 2021). The following chart displays options to vote early or in-person absentee for those states with larger or statewide elections on November, 2, 2021.
For detailed dates and deadlines by election, by state, please see our Election Dates and Deadlines page.
