Board of Elections Update

Hello Everyone
            We realize this has been a trying time for everyone.  We just wanted to update you on where things are with the elections and petitions.   

            The Governor moved the petition filing date up to March 19 & 20.  Some candidates that had circulated designating petitions were not aware of this change and did not get their petition filed in time.   They have 2 options at this point either run on an independent line or do a write in campaign. 

            Attached is the latest executive order signed by the Governor that states that all circulation, filing of independent petitions are postponed until further notice.    

            Our Office is closed to the public with only minimum staff working.  We can be reached by email or by phone. 
            Also, all registered voters will be receiving a blue card in the mail from our office.  This is done by law, it is to verify that a person lives where they are registered.   If someone does not receive a card they should call our office and we can look them up and see why they did not get one, so we can make sure everyone is registered at the correct location so they can vote. 
            If you have any questions give us a call.
