FILE - In this Jan. 17, 2020, file photo, a poll worker speaks with a voter as Minneapolis Early Voting Center opened, in Minneapolis. Early voting in the crush of Super Tuesday states that hold primaries on March 3 amounts to a parallel campaign for the Democratic nomination. While much of the focus is on who will come out on top in the traditional first four voting states, early voting will allow a much broader swath of voters to play a key role in picking the nominee. In Minnesota, in-person early voting began Jan. 17. Vermont's deadline to mail out its absentee ballots was the same day. Many of the 14 Super Tuesday states will offer some form of early voting between now and mid-February. (Glen Stubbe/Star Tribune via AP, File)
