Is voting early for office of the United States' President constitutional?
Article II of the United States constitution says: "The Congress may determine the Time of chusing the Electors, and the Day on which they shall give their Votes; which Day shall be the same throughout the United States."
If early voting is consititutional should the media be allowed to report the results before the general population has voted on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November of election year?
In fact, while all the "votes" may go in at different times, the electors do all cast their vote at the same time. The Monday after the second Wednesday in December. Because we have the electoral college system and not a popular vote system we, our states, choose electors to "vote" for us. However, while electors have always given their electoral points to whatever candidate won the state, they have the option not to. This is one of the many good reasons to remove our current electoral college system because it could, essentially, void your vote if an elector really wanted to. Also, the media can "guess" at who won all they want, it doesn't mean it is fact until the electoral votes are in in December. However, because we can see the results of the popular vote, we can usually get a good idea who won way before the electors cast their votes.
