High early voter turnout to determine 2012 election

Princeton, NJ – Roughly a third of voters will cast their ballots early in the general election of 2012, according to a Gallup Poll.

Some 15 percent have already voted early, mostly in the western states where voting laws favor early balloting. About 55 percent plan to vote early in western states, 23 percent in the midwest, 40 percent in the south, and only 9 percent in the east.

Voting laws in the eastern seaboard states discourage early voting.

This coupled with the disastrous effects of a perfect storm of the century will keep voting turnout low in the most populous areas of the U.S.
