The April 4 general municipal election is only a little more than two weeks away, and the Cole County clerk is sharing important dates for voters to remember.
For absentee voters, the last day to mail in an absentee ballot is 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 22. The last day to cast an absentee ballot in person is Monday, April 3.
For voters applying for absentee ballots for themselves or family members, the clerk's office encourages doing so "as soon as possible" to ensure the ballots get to the clerk's office by 7 p.m. on election day.
No-excuse absentee voting will begin Tuesday, March 21, and go through Monday, April 3, at the clerk's office. The cut-off for casting a no-excuse ballot at the clerk's office is 5 p.m. on April 3.
Until then, the clerk's office's normal hours are from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
The clerk's office will also be open from 8 a.m.-noon Saturday, April 1, for residents to cast votes.
