First-time voter Kahkashan Noreen cast her ballot with help from ESL instructor

Early voting eases the way for first-time immigrant voters

Election day is Tuesday, of course, but people can vote every day until then.

There is a difference. Early voting doesn’t take place in neighborhood precincts. It takes place at designated places.

There is an important advantage, especially for first-time voters who may want assistance.  Come with first-time voter Kahkashan Noreen, as she makes registering and voting look easy at Truman College Nov. 1, when groups hosted an event to guide people through the process.
