Voters Cast Ballots in Four Parties this Year

There are five sets of ballots in this year's primary elections.

That's according to Sheridan County Clerk Eda Schunk Thompson, who says there will be ballots for Libertarian and Constitution candidates as well as Republicans and Democrats. Thompson explained the fifth ballot is for people who aren't members of any of those parties.

Only municipal elections are on the ballot for people who don't belong to one of the four recognized political parties.

Thompson said absentee voting for the Aug. 16 primary election starts Friday. According to Election Supervisor Brenda Kekich, people may request absentee ballots by calling or emailing the election office, or by coming to the election office during business hours from 8 a.m. Until 5 p.m. on weekdays.

Absentee voting will continue through Aug. 15, and ballots returned by mail will be accepted until 7 p.m. on election day.
