One-Stop Absentee Voting Location and Times for the 2020 General Election.
For the past several years our office here on Fairground Rd has been an early voting site. Due to Covid-19 and the social distancing orders our office will not be a one-stop location. We have added the Spindale house to take the place of our office. This means better parking and plenty of space to social distance.
