For obvious reasons, thousands of Americans are opting to vote through the mail this election year. Floyd County Auditor Gloria Carr warns the community that leading up to November, ‘Abenstee Ballot Requests’ will be filling everybody’s mailboxes:
“However, since there are so many entities that mail these out, the Floyd County Auditor’s office doesn’t mail them unless you call or e-mail us asking for one.
Please know that you only need to mail ONE back to us if you intend to vote by mail. There are other options rather than vote by mail if you choose…in person voting at the courthouse from October 5 through November 2 or at your polling place on November 3 from 7 a.m. until 9 p.m.”
Floyd County Auditor’s Office wants people to remember to drop their ABR in a USPS mail box or to take it to the post office no later than the day before the election.
