Early voting now possible at County Clerk's office
Do you want to avoid lines on Election Day? Registered voters who desire to cast a ballot at the Office of the County Clerk rather than in their polling place, may now vote in person in the Office of the County Clerk. The office is located on the 2nd floor of the Logan County Courthouse, 601 Broadway St., Lincoln, Illinois. In person absentee voting continues through November 5, 2012.
Registered voters may also make application by mail to vote absentee. Students and out of county workers can conveniently obtain an Application to Vote Absentee by contacting the Office of the County Clerk, or access the form on the Clerk’s website at www.co.logan.il.us clerk .
Applications will be received by the County Clerk until November 1, 2012. No ballots may be sent by mail after that date as provided by law. No excuse is needed to vote by absentee by mail or in person.
Early Voting (similar to Absentee) will also be conducted in the Office of the County Clerk from October 22 through November 3, 2012.
Early voting allows all registered voters to cast their ballot prior to Election Day by voting at the pre-designated site of the Office of the Logan County Clerk. Early voters must be registered and present a valid picture ID showing their current voter registration address.
Office hours are Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. through November 5, 2012 and 9:00 a.m. – noon on Saturday, November 3.
