Scott County Clerk Fran Satterwhite issued a list of important deadlines for those intending to vote and for candidates in the November 6 General Election.
Voter registration will end at the close of the business day on Tuesday, October 9, and absentee voting begins in the Clerk's Office on the same day, advised Satterwhite.
"If you wish to register to vote or need to make changes in your registration information, please visit my office in the Courthouse before 4:30 p.m. on October 9," she stated. Courthouse hours for offices are from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Voters may also choose to visit the Indiana voters' website at http://www.in.gov/sos/elections/. The web address goes straight to the website's section where changes may be made and where a person can register to vote.
Starting October 9, absentee voting hours for registered voters will be from 8:30 a.m. to 12 noon and from 1 to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
County candidates for offices have a 12 noon deadline on October 19 to file their pre-election CFA reports with the Clerk's Office.
Tuesday, October 25, is the first day on which voters confined to their homes may cast absentee voter ballots before the county's traveling board.
October 27 is the first Saturday that the Clerk's Office will be open for absentee voters. Hours that day will be from 8:30 a.m. to 12 noon and from 1 to 4:30 p.m. The Clerk's Office will be the only department open in the Courthouse, and staffers will only be conducting absentee balloting. All other business must be conducted on weekdays.
Except for confined voters or voters caring for confined persons, 11:59 p.m. on October 29 is the deadline for the Clerk's Office to receive mailed, hand-delivered or faxed absentee ballot applications requesting to vote by mail.
Absentee ballot applications are now available at the Clerk's Office and may be obtained by visiting the office or calling 752-8420 during office hours.
November 3 is the second Saturday on which the Clerk's Office will be open for absentee voting. Hours will be from 8:30 a.m. to 12 noon and from 1 to 4:30 p.m.
November 5 at 12 noon is the deadline for the Clerk's Office to receive a mailed, faxed or hand-delivered absentee ballot application with the following restrictions: (1) from a confined voter or a voter caring for a confined person; and (2) which requests that the absentee ballot be delivered to the applicant by an absentee voter board.
Monday, November 5, at 12 noon is the deadline for a voter to vote an absentee ballot at the Clerk's Office.
There is a 4 p.m. deadline that date for a voter who has moved to a different precinct in Indiana, not more than 30 days before the general election, to execute a voter registration transfer request in the county voter registration office, which is the Clerk's Office. This transfer allows the voter to return to the voter's old precinct and vote at that location one final time.
Midnight on November 5 is the deadline for a registered, confined voter or a registered voter caring for a confined person to vote an absentee ballot before an absentee voter board at the voter's place of confinement.
