Election DayElection Days Around the World
Election Day is a civic holiday in Delaware, Hawaii, Kentucky, Montana, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, West Virginia, and the territory of Puerto Rico. Proposals for making Election Day a federal holiday have so far been unsuccessful.
Most U.S. states allow voters to cast ballots before the Election Day and most have some kind of absentee ballot system. Unconditional early voting in person is allowed in 32 states and in D.C. Unconditional absentee voting by mail is allowed in 27 states and D.C., and with an excuse in another 21 states. Unconditional permanent absentee voting is allowed in seven states and in D.C.
Postal voting for all major elections has been established in Colorado, Oregon and Washington, with ballots mailed to voters several weeks before Election Day. In Oregon, all postal votes must be received by a set time on Election Day. Washington State requires postal votes be postmarked by Election Day.
