Friday is deadline to register for November 7 election

Candidates for local offices and the State Supreme Court will be on the ballot, along with three statewide ballot propositions. "We've got city councils in both Utica and Rome up".

Beth Dlug, elections director, said early voting would end at county public library branches - Dupont, Hessen Cassel, Georgetown and Aboite.

That election had a heavy turnout and included balloting for U.S. President and vice president. "I think we'll see more of that particularly given the older population that are habitual voters and who use the early ballot more frequently than younger voters".

The in-person registration deadline is Friday.

The Muskingum County Board of Elections is open through 8:00 A.M.to 5:00 P.M. until, 2017. You may register in person at the board of elections until October 28. -Fri., and Saturday from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m.

Early voting at satellite sites has earned widespread acceptance, with almost 15,000 votes cast at the sites during the 2016 general election, according to county statistics. "If you'd like to come down, we are open until 4:30pm on Friday if you don't have access to a printer". Ballots can also be dropped off at one of the 24, 24-hour ballot boxes, including boxes at Aurora City Hall and Greenwood Village City Hall. The ballot must be received by the board of elections by November 20.

If you make a mistake or want a replacement ballot, you can go to any one of the county's four voter service centers. Voters can also check voter registration online. Every signature will be compared to the voter's registration record, to ensure the correct person has marked the ballot.
