Election Preparations in Jackson County
With more than 400 absentee ballots already in the books, Jackson County is preparing for quite a large turnout for tomorrow’s presidential primary election.
Polls across the state will open at 7 a.m. and remain open until 7 p.m. Voters in Jackson County can stop by the Jackson County Circuit Clerk’s office on Magnolia Street if they run into any issues while voting.
Identification is the main thing to remember before hitting the polls. Anyone interested in voting must bring a state-issued photo ID. Circuit Clerk of Jackson County Randy Carney said, “If they don’t have a state-issued photo ID, they will be allowed to vote by affidavit tomorrow and then they will have five days from tomorrow to come to my office and bring their photo ID so we can validate that vote, that affidavit.”
Jackson County has a total of 31 voting precincts.
