MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont Secretary of State Jim Condos says early voting is on the rise and a record number of people have registered to vote for the Nov. 8 election.

While some states allow early voting within two or three weeks of election day, in Vermont, a person has 45 days to cast an early ballot.

Vermont Public Radio reports (https://bit.ly/2eafuxs) Condos says that for the past three weeks, roughly 2,000 people a day have been voting early. He said if this pace keeps up, a record number of people will be voting early this year and the total number of early votes could represent around 25 percent of all ballots cast on Election Day.

He also said as of Monday, there were 462,693 voters registered.
