Depends on the state. States in the US vary by almost as much as the states in the EU do. For example, Washington State mails you your ballot, gives you plenty of time, sends you a massive voters phamplet where they give each candidate a chance to say their piece, and one of the best public referendum systems you'll ever see. Honestly, Washington State is a democracy-lover's paradise.

Mississippi, on the other hand, hates it when somebody actually votes, and insists that nothing will stand in their was of disenfranchising everyone they possibly can (especially black voters), and make voting like storming Normandy.
