Chapman: Municipal Absentee Ballot Deadline Approaches

Voters wishing to cast an absentee ballot for the municipal elections on August 28th must apply for their ballot by Thursday, August 23rd.

“We encourage everyone who is eligible to vote to do so in all elections, whether it is for those positions in city hall or the halls of Congress,” said Secretary of State Beth Chapman.
