An Arkansas county temporarily closed most of its early voting sites after the Democratic nominee for secretary of state was left off the ballot. Early voting runs through November 2. That is more than during the 2016 presidential election, when 58,775 voted here on day one.

Each city and town has its own times and locations for early voting.

Note that some counties may allow for early voting before the rest of the state does.

The first day of early voting and things are busy in the Sedgwick County Elections Office. The state first offered early voting in 2016, and about 22 percent of registered voters - 1 million people - cast their ballots early. They are open every day.

But still, if your schedule on Election Day - which, by the way, is Tuesday, Nov. 6 - looks like it may be busy, why wait?

"We're having a nice turnout here", Sedgwick County Elections Clerk Tabitha Lehman said around noon.

All voters who are inside the polling station by 8 p.m. will be entitled to vote.

"It's very important", said student voter Angelica Beltran.

OH is halfway through early voting, and the Secretary of State's office says it's picking up with two weeks to go till Election Day. "We've never seen something like this kind of an early start to the polls in a North Carolina mid-term election, so we may be comparing apples to watermelons".

But a big early turnout doesn't say what the final numbers will be, and research shows there is something to be said for having voting be a big deal, one-day affair.
