Early Voting Date Ranges in Your State

Want to Vote Early? Check your State's Early Voting Dates.

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.

For Early Voting location listings, check the State Voting Requirements / State Lookup Tools section for your state.

Many states do not have tools available for voters to look up Early Voting locations, nor even location listings for the whole state.  If your state does not have an Early Voting Locations entry on our State Lookup Tools, you can instead contact your Local Election Office for more details.

Definitions:

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

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 - some states use both and they're distinguished along the lines described above.
