The Republican Primary for Congressional District 3 House of Representatives is June 7 and Circuit Clerks are asking voters to look at their calendar to make sure there is no conflict as a vacation, surgery, a conference, etc., that would hinder a voter going to their precinct to vote. Absentee ballots are available now and clerks will be open Saturday, the Memorial holiday weekend on May 28th from 8am to noon for voters unable to come in during regular office hours of 8am to 5pm weekdays.
The Democrats do not have a primary in June as their nominee was unopposed and is automatically on the November general ballot.
Lauderdale County has returned to using paper ballots with scanners and no longer have the touchscreen’s which in the past had caused long lines. Voters are encouraged to vote at the precinct level as you are able to walk in and walk out fast and efficient.
Voters also need to check for their “County Precinct” location as where to go vote, with 17% of city voters having to vote in a different precinct in last year’s Mayor and City Council elections at their ” City Ward” precinct, it could be a different precinct location this year.
For your vote to count the voter needs to be in their correct precinct and every time you move your Circuit Clerk needs to be notified, even if it next door or across the road.
