Ahead of the 2024 election, Alabama, Delaware, Mississippi and New Hampshire are the only remaining states without an option.

The number of states offering early voting before election day increased from 24 in 2000 to 46 in 2024, according to our newest report “The Expansion of Voting Before Election Day, 2000-2024.”
