On Thursday, Hillary Clinton premiered a new campaign ad starring her most popular supporter, Michelle Obama. In the video, which is currently making the rounds on social media, Ms. Obama can be seen urging people to vote early for Ms. Clinton.
For those that have followed previous elections, the reason is clear: In 2012, some 30 percent of voters – mostly Democrats – took advantage of early voting, helping Barack Obama win his second term as president.
Early voting is possible in most states, either by mail or with a visit to the local election office. In some districts, voters need to provide a reason why they’re voting early. And in certain states, early voters can actually change their vote.
