Absentee Voting is Brisk

Absentee voting in this year's primary elections may be a little more brisk than in years past.

Sheridan County Election Supervisor Brenda Kekich says her office is a little busier than last year. Through Thursday, her office had received requests for 825 absentee ballots, and had received 400 back.

In the 2012 elections, just over 1,000 absentee ballots were requested, and 963 were returned. County voters have until Aug. 18, the day before the elections, to request absentee ballots. The ballots must be returned to the election office by 7 o'clock on primary election day, Aug. 19, to be counted.

People who want to vote absentee can call or email the county election office to have ballots mailed to them. Or they can vote in person in the election office on the second floor of the Sheridan County Courthouse addition.
