Registered voters in Kay County who become physically incapacitated after 5 p.m. on Tuesday, October 27, won’t have to miss the November 3, General Election, County Election Board Secretary Cheryl Howard said today.
Howard said state law permits registered voters who will be unable to go to the polls because they became incapacitated after 5 p.m. Tuesday, October 27, to vote on an emergency basis. “Physical incapacitation” includes a variety of conditions—injury, illness, childbirth—that prevent a person from voting in person at the polls on election day.
“If you think that you or someone fits into this category, contact the County Election Board office at 580-362-2130 as soon as possible for more information,” Howard said.
