Early voting dates for all States

Did you know that the outcome of the election could be decided well before November 6? Early voting has begun in the battleground state of Ohio. Early voting began last week in Iowa and will begin soon in other key states.

In 2008, Barack Obama substantially outperformed John McCain in the early voting, an important part of his victory.
