must act now if they want to vote in this fall's municipal election. Voter
registration ends next Tuesday, a day later than usual, because Columbus Day
will keep most government offices closed on Monday.
most government employees take a holiday Monday, Marion County Clerk Beth White
and her staff will be on duty for the first day of early voting. The clerk's
office, on the first floor in the west wing of City-County Building, near the
Delaware Street entrance, will be open from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
voting is available to any registered voter and is offered as a service to
expand the realm of opportunity for people to engage in the voting process.
wishing to cast an early vote must bring valid photo identification issued by
the state or the federal government. After completing an early voting
application, the voter will receive a ballot to complete and then seal in a
security envelope. The envelopes are stored in a vault until Election Day, Nov.
8, when bi-partisan teams deliver them to that voter's precinct to be counted.
parking is available, but voters choosing to use the Market and Alabama Street pay
lots at the corner can obtain refund vouchers from the Election Board office.
hoping to squeeze in for last-minute registration can visit Marion County's
Office of Voter Registration, just across the hall from the Clerk's office. The
registration office WILL BE CLOSED MONDAY, but on Tuesday, Oct. 11, people can
register on side of the hall and vote on the other.
