Early Voting in Salt Lake County

I just talked to the election officials in Salt Lake County. We have implemented expanded early voting in this election and there have been 20,000 people who early voted in the past week, with voters still voting today. By comparison, in the 2004 presidential election, there were 24,000 early AND absentee ballots. Salt Lake already has 5,000 or so absentee ballots in their safe for this election, so early voting is quite booming here!
