Early voting became prevalent in 2006.

Arguments in favor of early voting:

  • it reduces the demand for resources on Election Day

Arguments against early voting:

  • it reduces the time available to fix ballot and machine problems
  • it eliminates the voter's ability to make a decision based on information that surfaces late in a campaign
  • early vote counts provide information that makes it easier to rig Election Day tabulation
  • it's harder to monitor early voting, which is spread out over a period of time, than it is to monitor on Election Day alone
