Early is when you go in person or if you vote by mail and it gets there before election day. Those are the votes you see right when the polls close and you have a bunch of votes displayed and zero precincts in.

Provisional is when you go and there is a problem with your registration and you fill out a form and they verify later if you should have been allowed to vote and then they count your vote.
That's good to know. It's very different from up here. We have advanced polls but they count as a reporting precinct. We don't have mail-in or provisional voting.
