Absentee voting available until Nov. 3.
Absentee voting is in progress for the upcoming general election.
The Marshall County circuit clerk’s office is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The clerk’s office will be open extra hours – the two Saturdays before the November 6 election – for absentee voting.
The deadline to vote absentee in person is Saturday, Nov. 3, at noon.
For more information on absentee voting, including mail-in ballots, call circuit clerk Lucy Carpenter’s office at 252-3434. Mail-in ballots must be received no later than Monday, Nov. 5.
Only one of five seats on the Marshall County election commission is up for grabs. Four are unopposed. The District 3 race includes three candidates.
Two Marshall County School Board races are on the November 6 ballot – districts 3 and 4. There are two candidates in each race. School board lines are not the same as county supervisor lines, according to Carpenter, so if there are questions about voting, call her office at 252-3434.
Also on the ballot in November will be president of the United States, plus U.S. Senate and House of Representatives positions and a race for Supreme Court judge.
There will also be a special election on November 6 for District 52 state representative. Long-time legislator Tommy Woods of Byhalia retired in July.
District 52 includes parts of Marshall County and DeSoto County. Candidate qualifying deadline for the special election was Monday of this week.
