The Pulaski County Election Board is gearing up for absentee voting. Board members plan to continue using the Justice Center as the main early voting location.
Clerk JoLynn Behny told the rest of the board last week that Sheriff Jeff Richwine said it wouldn’t be a problem, but they still need official permission from the county commissioners. “There’s an ordinance in place that already establishes it as a Clerk’s Office annex, and we just need to get permission from the commissioners to allow early voting to start April 7 and then October 6,” she said.
In-person absentee voting is also expected to take place in at least one satellite location. The absentee voting period for the May primary is April 7 through May 4. Specific days and times within that range still have to be determined by the Pulaski County Election Board.
Board members plan to discuss the use of the Justice Center as well as a few other issues, during the commissioners’ next meeting on February 3.
