Early voting underway; Curbside pick-up for absentee ballots

Poll workers sign in voters at the Strickland Building while following social distancing and other safety measures.

Early voting kicked off Monday at the Jack Strickland Building.

The turnout, according to Elections Superintendent Tony Thompson, “was very good. We had a steady turnout the first day and that is continuing today (Tuesday).”

Early voting for the June 9 General Primary continue at the Jack Strickland Building each weekday through June 5; social distancing practices will be followed. 

For voters who previously requested an absentee ballot, there are two options for returning their completed ballot: by mail or by curbside drop-off. 

Voters wishing to drop their ballot off at the Jack Strickland building can do so by calling 685-6687 when they arrive at the facility. A poll worker will go to the vehicle and pick up the ballot.
