Absentee voting begins ahead of first presidential debate

Requests for absentee ballots by registered Democrats and Unaffiliated registered voters are running ahead of 2012, for the same number of days prior to the election.

Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 8.

Absentee voting traditionally begins six weeks before an election, and the process begins at 8 a.m. today.

In order to accommodate those who wish to vote absentee in-person on weekends, the York County Registrar's Office, located at 224 Ballard St in Yorktown, will be open two Saturdays, Oct. 29 and November 5, from 9 a.m.to 5 p.m. If it has been a while since you voted, and you are unsure of your status, check with your county Board of Elections, now. At some point the candidates fall silent, political advertisements disappear from television and one lonely political sign clings tenaciously to a telephone pole reminding all of us that there is a lot riding on the right to vote. The ballots themselves have to make their way to the clerk's office by 7 p.m. on November 8, according to the clerk's office.

Those who are not registered will need to register with their local clerk before they may vote and receive a ballot, Gibson said.

- Over the last week, almost 47,000 people registered online to vote, according to a Secretary of State news release. There are two types of early voters: those who find themselves in a situation where they must vote an absentee ballot, like our military stationed overseas, and those who choose to vote early.

The law permits emergency absentee voting in a few, very limited situations until 2 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 7.

You can download a Florida voter registration application from your county's supervisor of elections website, print the form out, fill it out, and mail it to the department's office.

If there are any questions or anyone would like further information on early voting, contact the Putnam County Clerk's Office at 815-925-7129.

"I'm glad we are starting earlier", Uhlenhake said in a telephone interview.

Democrats are scrambling to get out the vote in OH, a key battleground state Barack Obama won in 2008 and 2012. Those who did not respond and or vote in the subsequent two even-year elections were removed from the rolls.

Applications for absentee voting are now available and can be mailed or emailed by request by calling 334-737-3490, or can be picked up at the absentee office.
