Absentee balloting is on-going at the Franklin County Clerk’s office for the November general election. Voters can cast ballots absentee until Nov. 2 at 5 p.m.
“We have had over 300 residents vote absentee already,” said election clerk Camille Larsen. “That’s a really good response for this early. It usually is a good indicator of what the voter turnout will be on election day,” she said.
“We have curbside absentee voting available for those who are homebound or otherwise disabled. Anyone who needs assistance in voting absentee or on Nov. 6, election day, can contact the clerk’s office at 852-1090,” she said.
Four county positions are up for election this month and there will be contested races for Franklin County Sheriff and Prosecutor.
Chief Deputy Dave Fryar, a Republican, is running for sheriff. He is being opposed by Alan G. Riggs, Fairview, a Democrat. Long-time Sheriff Don Beckstead did not file for re-election. His current term expires in January 2013.
