Of the 292 absentee ballots mailed out this election season, 205 have been returned, according to Prairie County Election Administrator Toni Kalfell. Thirty-three percent of the county’s 873 registered voters have signed up to receive absentee ballots.
For those waiting to vote on General Election Day, polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 6 at the Fallon Coffee Shop and the lobby of the Terry High School gym. Those who want to vote but haven’t yet registered can do so by registering at the Clerk and Recorder’s office through Nov. 6. Although the courthouse will be closed for other business, Kalfell explained doors will be open on Election Day, allowing late registering voters to register and vote at the courthouse.
The three local races up for election are uncontested. Candidates and offices are: Todd Devlin, County Commissioner, District 3; Toni Kalfell, County Clerk of District Court and Clerk and Recorder; Garry Bunke, County Attorney.
County election results will be listed in next week’s Tribune.
