Guest Blog by Aapo Puskala, WebCal.Guru

The process leading up to Election Day involves a series of crucial dates and deadlines that every voter must be aware of to ensure their voice is heard. With election dates, registration deadlines, and voting information constantly changing, it can be challenging to keep track of it all. The problem is extensive – in the next six months alone, there are over 1,400 election dates and deadlines.

Some of the key dates and deadlines in the 2024 US presidential election process include:

  • Primary Elections and Caucuses determine the candidate(s) who will represent their party in the general election.
  • Voter Registration Deadlines define the date by which individuals must register to vote.
  • Absentee and Mail-In Ballot Deadlines are the last dates when voters are able to cast their ballots, either in person, by drop box, or by mail.
  • Early Voting Period refers to the time when states allow voters to cast their ballots, in-person behind a voting booth, before Election Day.
  • The first Tuesday after the first Monday in November is designated as Election Day, when voters across the country head to the polls to choose their preferred candidate.

The Convenience of Web Calendar Subscriptions

With so many dates and deadlines to remember, it's easy for even the most conscientious voter to lose track. This is where calendar subscriptions prove invaluable. By subscribing to an election calendar, individuals can effortlessly stay informed about upcoming events and deadlines relevant to the election(s) in their state. Good News: U.S. Vote Foundation has sponsored WebCal.Guru to help get these important dates onto your personal calendar.
