Though voting "often" may be a thing of past political lore, voting early is still very much part of the process. And it starts Monday.
Early voters can choose one of 51 polling places throughout the city to cast votes in the 2011 Municipal General Election, which includes the race for mayor.
You don't need a reason to vote early, according to the Board of Election Commissioners, but be prepared to flash a government-issued form of ID. Here's a list of addresses and hours for each spot.
Board of Elections officials remind residents that "voters may not return to amend, change or undo a ballot for any reason." Early voting ends Feb. 17. Election Day is Feb. 22.
