Today is last day of city election

Regular polling places are open today from 6 a.m.-6 p.m. Pictured, Inez Maple picks up an “I Voted” sticker after casting her ballot on Saturday.

More than 50 voters came to the Fayette County Courthouse Saturday. County Clerk Lisa Witt hopes that is a good sign for election turnout Tuesday.

Witt said that turnout beat the number for the Saturday before the 2015 city election. She is hopeful that means there will be a good turnout today as voters cast ballots in the Connersville city election and Glenwood Town Council election. 

Polling places are open today until 6 p.m. After that, election officials will count the ballots in the Fayette Circuit Court room on the second floor of the courthouse, 401 Central Ave. The public may come and watch as the vote tallies are posted. Entry to the courthouse will be from the north doors, off of the parking lot. 

Witt said advance voting went well. On Saturday, at least one person had to cast a provisional ballot after finding that something was incorrect about her voter registration. Under the watchful eyes of poll workers Diane Rose, Democrat, and Leota King, Republican, the ballot was cast and a paper copy of it placed in an envelope. On election night, if the information checks out and the person is entitled to a vote, then her ballot will be added to the count.
