Incapacitated voters can still vote; absentee voters can vote, Friday, Monday, in Yarbrough School Election

The Polls will be open on Tuesday May 9 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. for the Special Yarbrough School Election.

A valid ballot mark is a filled in arrow, an example of which will be available in the voting booths.

If the ballot is filled out incorrectly it must be turned in to the precinct officials so it can be destroyed and another ballot issued.

Voters should also bring their voter's identification cards.

Voters who disagree with the information on the voter's registry must vote a provisional ballot. The ballot will be sealed and counted after election day if the voter's information can be verified.

The precinct voting place is #6, the Keyes High School .

Registered voters who have become incapacitated after 5 p.m. Tuesday won't have to miss the Yarbrough Special School election on election day May 9.

Election board Secretary Vicki Turner said state law permits registered voters who will be unable to go to the polls to vote on an emergency basis.

Physical incapacitation includes injury, illness, childbirth.

If you think you qualify under this category call the County Election Board office at the number below.

Registered voters wishing to vote absentee by mailed ballot have missed the deadline; however, they can still vote absentee at the County election board office on Friday May 5, and Monday, May 8 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

In-person absentee voters will complete an application form when they arrive at the office. They are not required to state a reason for voting absentee. They are required to swear that they haven't voted a mail-in ballot and that they will not vote at their polling place on election day.

The Absentee Voting Board will verify the voter's registration information, and issue the correct ballots. The voter will then mark them in the privacy of a voting booth and insert them in a voting device.

For information call 544-3377.
