Time is running out for presidential campaigns. By the time Denver hosts the October 3rd presidential debate, Iowa will have been voting for nearly a week (Sept. 27). Critical Ohio begins the day before the debate (Oct. 2).
Toss-up states Colorado and Florida will begin early voting on October 22 and 27, respectively. More than 70 percent of Colorado’s votes will likely be cast before Election Day (79% in 2008).
All western states allow early voting and no-excuse absentee voting, except Oregon and Washington which have an “all mail” voting.
