Early Voting Begins for May Special Election

Early voting begins today for the May 7th special election that includes run-off votes for Dayton mayor and city commission, and levy proposals for area schools, police, fire and other services for more than 20 communities in the region.

Llyn McCoy, Deputy Director of the Greene County Board of Elections, says residents can still register to vote in the election if they have not done so.

"The registration deadline is actually Monday, April 8th," says McCoy.  "They can still register at any Greene county library or license bureau; that's probably the most popular place to go.  They're welcome to come to our office."

McCoy says that from now until April 8th, voters can register and cast their ballots at the same time.

"They just need to provide their driver's license number or the last four digits of their social security number, and they need to write that down on the application," says McCoy.  "If they bring another form of identification, such as a utility bill we would need to see that.  Voting just takes a few minutes so they will probably be in and out in about 15 minutes."

McCoy also says that Greene County has re-vamped their website to make absentee ballot requests easier for voters.
