What are the voting options?

There are three ways of voting: voting early by mail, voting early at a one-stop voting site, and voting on election day. The beauty of voting early by mail is you can do it from home or wherever you happen to be. You just need to find two people to witness your signature on the envelope. Voting early using one-stop allows you to miss the long lines on election day and you register at the same time you vote.
