The Knox County Clerk’s office is accepting absentee ballots now through Nov. 4 for anyone who will be out of the county on Election Day.
Absentee ballots will also be accepted for anyone confined to a military base, in their third trimester of pregnancy, or have a surgery scheduled on Election Day.
Those who are disabled can call the clerk’s office at 546-3568 and request a paper ballot. Paper requests must be made and returned to the clerk’s office as soon as possible so their votes will be assured of being counted.
All ballots must be returned to the clerk’s office by 6 p.m. the day of the election.
Knox County Clerk Mike Corey wants to remind everyone that voter registration is over.
The polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 4.
