Monday is the last day to register for primary
The last day to register to vote in the Jan. 15, 2008 Presidential Primary is 5 p.m. today, Dec. 17, despite last minute maneuvering to stop the disputed primary election.
The deadline to register to vote is 30 days before the election, and that makes the date the close of business today. Absentee voting is already taking place. Registered voters can vote by absentee ballot if they meet one of two requirements - they will be out of town for the election or they are age 60 or older or have a disability that will not allow them to go to the polls. If you meet one of those conditions and have not received an absentee ballot, contact your local county clerk. The applications for absent voter ballots may be obtained by contacting your city or township clerk. Requests for absentee voter ballots must be in writing. On the absentee voter application, voters are reminded that they must check a box to indicate which party’s ballot they would like.
