By voting early do you mean people being able to cast votes before November 4th? If yes, its because those states want to avoid voter backups at polling stations. A polling station must close by the time deadline (usually 7-8 pm local time). When they close they have to stop allowing voters to vote, and therefore alienate voters. To stop this, states allow people to vote early to help ease congestion at the polls.

What group earned the right to vote before the other groups?

Throughout history where voting existed, land owning men have typically been the only people allowed to vote. (In MOST civilizations throughout history, NOBODY has been allowed to vote; most civilizations have been empires and monarchies, where the King ruled absolutely.) In ancient Rome and Greece, only land owners were allowed to vote. In the early United States, franchise (the ability to vote) was expanded to all male citizens rather than just land owners, and then was expanded to women. Women have been able to vote in some states and cities since the mid-1800s; federal law allowed all female citizens to vote starting in the early 1900s.

Who would vote in the thirteen colonies?

I assume you are talking about the time after the colonies declared their independence from England, because prior to that time, the King of England did not want the colonists to vote. After the United States became a country, the only people allowed to vote were white men, and usually only those white men who owned land or property. However, it did not take long for average working men to begin to vote too; but women and black people were not allowed to vote at all; and in some states, in those early days, they only allowed Christians to vote (but those laws were soon changed).
