Voting Early at the Library

Original post made by Paul Losch, Community Center, on Nov 6, 2016

I voted Saturday. It was a 90 minute wait before I got a ballot.

Most importantly, it is great that so many people are turning out to vote.

And, we need more capacity for people who choose to vote prior to election day. People should not have to wait in line that long.

Just filled out my ballot. Can I drop it off at an early voting place in the county ir do I have to wait until Tuesday. I have an absentee ballot. Can I drop off my spouse's and is it ok to sign it today?

What is the advantage to waiting in line for 90 minutes to vote vs filling in your absentee ballot at home and mailing it in?
