Charles Stewart III is a political science professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and one of the co-directors of the CalTech/MIT Voting Technology Project. He has recently researched the effects of absentee and early voting in terms of their impact on voters, election administration and turnout. In August 2015, Stewart spoke with NCSL about early voting and more. In this three-minute video, he says that early voting is used by regular voters more than by occasional voters, and that overall turnout does not change based on the availability of early voting options.
