The Marion County Clerk's office is expecting many people to vote absentee by mail in the upcoming General Election and wants to ensure all votes are counted.
Last week the clerk’s office sent out nearly 50,000 ballots to voters in the county.
The office is asking for voters help to make sure ballots are processed correctly. When residents receive their ballot in the mail they should check the correct precinct is listed and that there are two signatures on the back. If there is an issue, voters should contact the Election Board.
“The Marion County Election Board is staffed with employees and volunteers working tirelessly to ensure our democracy functions,” explained Myla Eldridge, Marion County Clerk. “Fortunately, voter education is part of our ongoing strategy to ensure first-time voters and first-time absentee voters understand how to properly participate in the election by mail ahead of the November 3 deadline.”
A record number 123,000 voted by mail in Marion County's June Primary.
