Advance voting: In an effort to making voting easier, any registered voter can vote by mail or in person before Election Day by using an advance-voting ballot.

Person interested in doing that need to contact Carol Maggard, election officer for Marion County at the county clerk’s office in Marion, to request an application for an advance-voting ballot. The last day voters can apply for advance-voting ballots is Friday, Oct. 29.

The deadline to cast advance-voting ballots in person at the office of the county election officer is noon, Monday, Nov. 1.

Advance voting ballots must be received in the office of the county election officer by the time polls close at 7 p.m. on Election Day.

Because mail service is frequently not next-day to Marion from much of western Marion County, Maggard recommends that advance-voting ballots be mailed no later than Friday, Oct. 29.

Sick, disabled or illiterate voters may receive assistance in applying for and casting advance-voting ballots.
