Wright County Auditor reminds people to turn in absentee ballots

Betty Ellis, Wright County Auditor, wants to remind the county’s voters that they need to turn in or mail their absentee ballots before election day. She notes that should people choose to mail their absentee ballots, it needs to be postmarked by Monday, November 5th, the day before the election, to be counted. Ellis says people can certainly mail in their ballots, but if possible, she encourages people to drop them off at the auditor’s office at the Wright County courthouse in the auditor's office to avoid any postal delays. You can turn an absentee ballot even the day of the election physically at the auditor’s office. If you have an absentee ballot and have not filled it out by election day, you can still vote even if you are not able to drop it off at the courthouse. Ellis says, that in that case, you can go to your regular polling place and surrender the absentee ballot and then get a regular ballot. Election day is Tuesday, November 6th.
