When you Vote

I've already voted (by mail, which is allowed in Colorado for everyone), and many other people are taking advantage of "early voting" in person, but many people are waiting until Election Day to vote, and trying to juggle work and commute and other reponsibilities that day.

At any rate, here are the state-by-state rules for taking time off work to vote.

Not sure what you need to do to identify yourself? Are you a student and not sure if you can vote at home or at school?
