Supported by Vote Early Day, Molly Fitzpatrick, the Boulder County Clerk and Recorder and Ricky Hatch, the Weber County Clerk and Auditor hosted an AMA – Ask Me Anything! – on Reddit.
Voting early is an important way to make sure nothing, from last-minute changes or a long commute, will keep you from casting your ballot and making your voice heard. And, bonus, it shortens Election Day lines and helps keep people safe. Voting early rules vary widely all over the country, and we want to make sure you have all the answers you need to get #VoteReady.
