Deadline looms for primary election registration

SUMMIT COUNTY – Citizens who want to vote in the Aug. 13 primary election need to make sure they are registered by July 15 to be eligible to cast a ballot.

The last day to register to vote, change address information or change party affiliation is July 15. However, unaffiliated voters can select a party up to and including election day.

After July 15, electors must go to the County Clerk and Recorder’s Office in Breckenridge to note a change of address within the county that took place prior to July 14. If they move between July 15 and Aug. 13, the electors should either vote early, by absentee ballot or at their old precinct polling place.

Early voting will take place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Aug. 5 to 9 at the Clerk and Recorder’s Office; those wishing to vote by absentee ballot must apply for a ballot by fax, mail or in person. If the ballot is to be mailed, voters need to request an absentee ballot between July 15 and Aug. 6; electors who request a ballot in person can do so between July 15 and Aug. 9.

Absentee ballot requests must be made in writing and include the elector’s name, date of birth, physical address, party affiliation, signature, address where the ballot should be mailed and phone number. Absentee ballots must be returned to the county clerk’s office no later than 7 p.m. Aug. 13 to be counted.

Polling places will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Aug. 13.
