Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., on Tuesday, Nov. 6, for the General and Eldorado Special Elections.
Jennifer L. Wilson, Secretary of the Jackson County Election Board, offered voters some tips on how to make their votes count:
Wilson said that a valid marking (fill in the box next to your choices) is shown on posters at the polling place and inside the voting booths. If voters make mistakes marking their ballots, Wilson said they should not try to correct those errors. Instead, voters should return the spoiled ballot to the precinct officials, who will destroy it and issue a new ballot to the voter.
Wilson also stated that you must provide your Voter ID Card or a current form of identification when voting.
Voters who want to get through the line quickly should vote at mid-morning or mid-afternoon, because those usually are the two slowest periods for voting during the day.
Anyone who is eligible and in line at the polling place at 7 p.m. on Tuesday will be entitled to vote.
