Vote Now

From yesterday's Washington Post blog, The Trail:
Barack Obama wrapped up two days of campaigning here in Ohio with something you don't often hear at a pre-election rally: Go vote. Right now. "Right across the street," Obama told a crowd of thousands in a downtown park along the river.
In Ohio, and over a dozen other states, early voting is underway right now. In all, 36 of the 50 states will allow some form of early voting this year, in addition to absentee voting.
The Associated Press reports:
Nationwide, about a third of the electorate is expected to vote early this year, thanks to expanded early voting provisions and fewer restrictions on absentee voting, researchers project. In all, more than 30 states allow any registered voter to cast an early ballot, some in person and others by mail.

... Across the nation, election officials are reporting high demand for absentee ballots. Ballots already are available in a few states, and they will be ready in about 20 more this week. By the first week of October, absentee voting will have started in all but a handful of states. In most states, all registered voters will be eligible to vote absentee, and a growing number will take advantage.
Now matter where you live, you can find out the early vote options available to you at VoteForChange.com.
At recent campaign stop, Barack took a moment backstage to record a message for supporters in North Carolina, where early voting begins next Thursday, October 16th:
