Voting methods (USA)

To boost turnout in US elections, many states have introduced alternative or convenience systems for casting votes. Overall three methods are used:
– 37 states and the District of Columbia allow early voting in person during a designated period before Election Day, without the voter needing to provide justification for voting early.
– All states mail absentee ballot papers to voters at their request (justification is required in 20 states).
– Postal ballot papers are
automatically mailed to voters eligible for mail voting. (Three states use such voting for all elections: Oregon, Washington and Colorado.)
