Voter deadlines nearing

Published 9:19 am Tuesday, October 5, 2010

It gets said a lot, but every vote really does count.

Several local and statewide elections have been settled by just a few votes. Just this past June, the Republican Party saw Alabama’s first primary recount.

That’s why it’s important to let you voice be known by educating yourself about the candidates and going to the polls to vote.

Several important voting deadlines are just around the corner. October 22 is the last day to register to vote. That deadline is followed by the last day for voters to make a request for an absentee ballot on Oct. 28 and the last day for voters to hand deliver or postmark an absentee ballot on Nov. 1.

Please keep these dates in mind as you prepare to vote in Tuesday’s Nov. 2 election.
