EARLY VOTING

early voting

In order to get early voting, a constitutional amendment must be proposed and approved by the General Assembly before it can go to the voters.  We would like to see it on the 2020 ballot and to achieve this goal, it will take 75% approval by our state representatives.   It is not too early to start promoting early voting with your legislators and encourage your friends and family to do the same.
