My office sent out absentee applications to all those on our permanent list before the August primary. You can be on the list too - just call and ask! If you wish to vote absentee for this election only, please send us an email or call us. If you signed up for an application and haven't received it by now, please call. We expect to mail the absentee ballots out about October 3rd. You must have completed an application first. If you filled out an application for August, you should be all set for November. Any questions? Please call, we are happy to answer them!
Straight tickets voting WILL be allowed on the November ballot. Reminder about straight ticket voting: on the top of the ballot for November, there will be little pictures representing each party - they are formally called vignettes. These parties will have their vignette on the ballot: Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, US Taxpayers, Green Party, Natural Law and Working Class Party. Here is how straight ticket voting works. You may vote straight ticket for any of those parties by filling in the oval next to the vignette. Then, you can choose to vote for ANYONE in ANY party on the ballot, and the chosen one will supercede the straight ticket vote. For example, if you choose Green Party straight ticket, but want the Natural Law president, you can fill in the oval next to the Natural Law president and that candidate will get the vote, NOT the Green Party candidate. All the Green Party candidates who you do not vote against by picking someone in a different party will get your vote. Questions? Call me, Terri Kowal, City Clerk.
