As early voting looms, Donald Trump is running out of time


Washington Examiner: Voting in the presidential election begins in September, giving Republican Donald Trump less time to turn things around than supporters might assume.

Election Day is Nov. 8 — a full 88 days away. But absentee voting begins in September in at least half-dozen swing states that could decide the White House race.

In North Carolina, a crucial battleground, where Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton are running even, absentee ballots are to be mailed to voters on Sept. 9. That’s less than a month from now.

In Ohio, a bellwether for Republican presidential candidates, absentee and in-person early voting begins in nine weeks — on Oct. 12 — and runs through Election Day.
