In-Person Absentee Voter Notice
Registered voters in Kay County who want to vote by mail absentee ballot in next Tuesday’s Statewide Primary Election, Blackwell Municipal and Special Election, Blackwell School District I-45 Board Election and the Kildare School District C-50 Board Election, and the Newkirk Municipal Election have missed the application deadline, County Election Board Secretary Cheryl Howard said today.
“They aren’t out of luck, however,” Howard said.
Voters who want to cast absentee ballots still can do so at the County Election Board office on Thursday, June 25, and Friday, June 26, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday, June 27, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. A two-member, bipartisan Absentee Voting Board will be on duty each day to assist absentee voters.
“In-person absentee voters fill out an application form when they get to the office. They are not required to give a reason for voting absentee” Howard said. “They are required to swear that they have not voted a regular mail absentee ballot and that they will not vote at their polling place on election day.”
According to Howard, the Absentee Voting Board verifies a voter’s registration information, then issues the voter’s ballots. The voter marks the ballots in a voting booth and then puts them in the voting device. “It is very much like voting at a precinct polling place,” said Howard.
Contact the County Election Board, located at 201 S. Main St. basement of Kay County Courthouse in Newkirk for more information. The telephone number is 580-362-2130.
