Absentee VotingThe Marshall County Election Office was busy last week preparing absentee mail-in ballots to send to registered voters who have requested an absentee ballot for the presidential election on November 3rd.

During Wednesday morning’s Marshall County Election Board meeting, Melinda Keilman, Voter Registration Deputy told members that 511 online application requests have been received and to add to that they have had 858 mail in applications.

The first round of mail-in ballots and envelopes were sent out on Saturday.

Anyone wishing to vote by absentee mail-in ballot should make your request as far in advance of the November 3rd election as possible by completing an application.  Absentee ballots will be mailed to voters who will be unable to vote in person. The deadline to request a ballot by mail must be received in the Marshall County Clerk’s Office by Thursday, October 22nd.  When your ballot arrives, read it carefully and follow the instructions to complete it and return it.
