Vote as early as you can.

Hello again dear Perelandra enthusiast!

We're posting this message to cajole . . . um, pester . . . uh . . . help you participate in this November's U.S. General Election.

You may have to put in some extra effort this time around. Many of us feel it is our duty to cast our vote, and grateful we're able to do so. We believe the extra effort is more than worthwhile.


NYT Mail-In Deadlines

About Mail-In Voting

The New York Times recently posted a great, easy-to-follow, state-by-state breakdown of mail-in voting time frames.

If you live in Minnesota, Mississippi, North Dakota, Alabama, Wisconsin, Maine, Georgia, Michigan, Delaware, South Carolina, Louisiana, South Dakota, Wyoming, New Hampshire, Connecticut or Montana — do not put off submitting your ballot. Your state does not allow enough time for last-minute voting.

"In the 2018 midterm elections, more than a quarter of all rejected mail ballots — 114,000 votes — were not counted because they were late. But voters should have plenty of time to cast a ballot by mail in November, as long as they don’t wait until the last minute to request one."

There are 19 other states across the country that "might" allow enough time for you to cast your mail-in vote at the last minute, but why would you want to wait? It's a big risk.

Will You Have Enough Time to Vote by Mail in Your State?
Yes, but it's risky to procrastinate.
