With 14 days (and counting) to go until Election Day 2008, many Americans are excitedly awaiting the opportunity to cast their votes in a truly historic election. In communities across the country, fair-minded people are volunteering to defeat anti-LGBT ballot initiatives . . . educating their neighbors about why this election is so important . . . and making sure that their friends remember to vote for pro-equality candidates and against discriminatory campaigns and candidates that seek to roll back and deny fundamental rights to those we love.

And, in many states, you can already cast your vote, well ahead of election day!

Here are some facts about some of the states where early voting is now taking place, and how you can vote now (or vote by mail) and avoid the lines on election day:

Colorado: Early voting begins today and ends October 31. Vote-by-mail applications must be received by October 28 (via mail) or October 31 (in-person).

Florida: Early voting begins today and ends November 2. Vote-by-mail applications are due October 29.

Georgia: Early voting begins October 27 and ends October 31. Vote-by-mail applications are due by October 31.

Indiana: Early voting is already underway and ends November 3. Vote-by-mail applications are due by October 27.

Iowa: Early voting is already underway and ends November 1.

Maine: Early voting is already underway and ends on November 4.

Montana: Early voting is already underway and ends November 4. Vote-by-mail applications are due November 3.

I'm hoping to go early vote tomorrow. Our polls really early here, so I figure the fewer people that are in line at the polls, the more likely others are to stay and vote Obama.
