    Election Day could be 'been-there, done-that' for a third of voters who cast ballots early

    Election Day will be something of an afterthought for tens of millions of Americans _ they'll be voting well ahead of time.

    In fact, six weeks out from Election Day, some voters in Kentucky, South Carolina and Virginia already are done.

    Nationwide, about a third of the electorate is expected to vote early this year, thanks to expanded early voting provisions and fewer restrictions on absentee voting, researchers project. In all, more than 30 states allow any registered voter to cast an early ballot, some in person and others by mail.
