These States Have Early Voting Deadlines Approaching Ahead of Election Day

En español | Voters in many states are running out of time to cast an early in-person ballot ahead of  Election Day. Early voting rules vary, with states like Arkansas and Maryland allowing any registered voter to cast a ballot at an early voting site. South Carolina is offering early voting for the first time this year thanks to a new election law.
