Early voting starts today



Nearly two years after campaigning began, the time has finally arrived to make your pick for president — as well as cast votes in other federal, state and local races.

During these two weeks, registered voters can go to any designated early voting site to cast ballots. Polls will be open Monday through Saturday through Nov. 1.
