Early voting resumes Monday across state

Early voting for the general election resumes Monday at county election boards. Registered voters who want to avoid the polls or will be out of town Tuesday may vote in person from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday. Voters mark ballots in a private voting booth and put the marked ballot in a voting device, much like voting at a precinct polling place. Voting more than once is a felony, so voters who vote early or with an absentee ballot cannot vote again at their precinct polling place on Election Day.

Voters should

confirm polling place

Election officials are encouraging voters to confirm their precinct assignment and polling location before heading to the polls Tuesday. After the redistricting process of 2011, many voters had to be assigned to different polling places, Election Board Secretary Paul Ziriax said. Voters may use the state Election Board's free polling place locator, available online at and go to the frequently asked questions section. Or voters may call their county election board. Every 10 years after the federal census, the Legislature is required to conduct redistricting, or the process of redrawing district lines for the U.S. Congress, the state Senate and the state House of Representatives to ensure populations in the districts are equal. County commissioners must redraw their districts to equalize populations, as well. After redistricting, county election boards statewide must redraw precincts to conform to the new districts, resulting in many voters being assigned to new polling places.
