Weekly Election Update 10.1.12

from: Jessica Myers on Oct 01, 2012
October is a busy month for Election deadlines, so we have changed the format a little bit for the Election Updates blog this month. Each blog will be broken down into categories: Voter Registration, Absentee, Early Voting, and Other Highlights. The State listed will be linked to the corresponding information on the Secretary of State’s website. For example, click on a state under the voter registration section and it will take you to registration information for that state. I will highlight the deadlines approaching in the coming 2 weeks to give you more time to prepare.
If you have additional information, requests, or corrections, please submit them via Twitter @EACgov or email Jessica Myers at jmyers@eac.gov. Also, please visit our 2012 Election Calendar.
