The November election is still more than a month away, but voters could start casting absentee ballots as early as Thursday.

It's part of the state's new "no excuse" absentee ballot. In years past, voters had to state a reason for wanting to vote absentee, but this year, voters no longer need a reason or excuse to cast an absentee ballot.
