registration available for Nov. 6 general election
The deadline to register to vote in the November 6 general election is October 5, according to circuit clerk Lucy Carpenter. Those who register by mail must have their forms postmarked no later than October 5.
Voter registration forms are available at Byhalia City Hall, Potts Camp City Hall and at the circuit clerk’s office in the courthouse in Holly Springs.
Absentee voting information was not available at presstime for the August 28 runoff election. Absentee ballots will not be available until they are approved by the Secretary of State’s office, Carpenter said.
Those eligible to vote absentee by mail include military personnel, students who will be out of the county for school on election day and anyone who will not be in county on August 28 due to travel or work out of state.
Carpenter said absentee ballots will be sent to those requesting them as long as her office has an address to send it to and as long as there is time to get the ballot there and back.
Those who requested absentee ballots August 7 will be sent absentee ballots for the August 28 runoff election. Voters should call the circuit clerk’s office at 662-252-3434, if they have questions or requests.
Watch The South Reporter for these important dates.
There are no runoffs in the Republican Party primary so only a Democratic Party ballot will be voted in Marshall County. Those who voted the Republican Party ballot on August 7 cannot vote August 28, since only a Democratic party ballot will be voted, Carpenter said. If, however, a person did not vote in the August 7 primary elections, he or she can vote August 28 regardless of party preference.
Both party candidates and Independent candidates for offices will all be on the same ballot in November.
