Regular office hours for absentee voting are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The circuit clerk’s office will also be open for absentee voting the last two Saturdays before the election until noon – October 25 and November 1. Saturday, Nov. 1, at 12 noon is the deadline for voting absentee in person at the office.

Fish fry Friday to benefit Harris
The Marshall County Sheriff’s Department cooking team is throwing a fund-raiser for jail administrator Bobby Harris, who is undergoing chemotherapy, according to sheriff Kenny Dickerson.
The fish fry will be held this Friday, Oct. 17, from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Eddie Lee Smith Multi-Purpose Building in Holly Springs.
Plates are $10 each. Purchase tickets in advance from any employee at the sheriff’s department so the team will know how much fish to fry.
Orders will be delivered, if requested.
Harris is still working while taking chemotherapy at West Clinic in Southaven, he said. He was diagnosed with Stage III pancreatic cancer and has been sick since July, he said.
The Sheriff’s Relay For Life Team, Law and Order, has participated in four Relays.
Dickerson said the sheriff’s department has lost five employees to cancer: William Harold Lewis, jailer; Eddie Mae Lucas, business office; William “Billy” McAlexander, jailer; Dale Chase, jailer; and Rob Warren, patrolling officer.
Cancer affects the entire community, the sheriff said. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
