More Americans than ever are expected to cast their vote by mail this election season. If your one of them, here is what you need to know to make sure your vote gets counted.

Early voting kicks off in Florida next week, but voters are already starting to return their absentee ballots. CBSN political reporter Caitlin Huey-Burns brings us an inside look into how the votes are being counted.
