“We will be open and accepting registrations on October 9, but due to the holiday, will also register on October 10,” said Thomas.
The clerk’s office announced that absentee voting would begin on October 12, and was open to any voter who will be outside the county on election day, students who temporarily reside outside of the county, members of the Armed Forces and their dependents who reside outside the county, military personnel who are confined to a base during the election, voters or a spouse of a voter who has surgery scheduled that will require hospitalization on Election Day or a woman in the last trimester of her pregnancy.
A machine will be available at the County Courthouse annex for absentee voters on October 12. Voters unable to use the machine may request mail-in ballots, which must be postmarked no later than Election Day. Relatives of voters outside the county may request these ballots at the clerk’s office.
