Absentee Voting for All

With absentee voting for all being offered, Rena reached out to the Board of Elections to find out whether requesting an absentee ballot committed you to voting absentee. Allison M. Wright sent us the following reply:

You are not committed. If you apply for an absentee and even mail it back and then decide you would rather vote in person you can. When signing in at the polling place your name will show up as voting absentee. What then happens is we run a report of who voted in person and we will pull your ballot so that only your vote in person will count. Thank you for helping us spread the word. It helps us out a lot.
