The Marshall County Board of Elections signed off on a voting plan for November’s General Election and includes mail-in voting, early voting and in-person voting on Election Day.
Mail-in ballots can be requested by going through the Kentucky Secretary of State’s portal at govoteky.com or by calling Marshall County Clerk Tim York’s office at 270-527-4743.
Mail-in ballots must be requested through the portal or by contacting York’s office by Friday, Oct. 9. The ballots must be postmarked by Nov. 3 and received by Nov. 6 to count toward the Nov. 3 General Election.
In the plan, York and the board noted there would be a drop box available in the Marshall County Courthouse’s main hallway and another drop box at Calvert City Hall during those buildings’ normal operating hours. Ballots placed in the drop boxes must be done by Nov. 3.
Early voting for registered voters will run from Oct. 13 through Nov. 2 and will be held on the main floor of the courthouse building. That voting site will be available during the week from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m., as well as Saturdays through Oct. 31 from 8 a.m.-noon.
Additional early voting opportunities will be offered for any registered voter from any voting precinct on the following dates and at the following locations:
• Oct. 13-14 at the Calvert City Library
• Oct. 16 at the Possum Trot Fire Station
• Oct. 19 at New Harmony Baptist Church
• Oct. 21 at Brewers-United Methodist District Office
• Oct. 23 at Hardin Community Building
• Oct. 27 at South Marshall Fire Department
Voting times at those sites will be from 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. on those dates.
The actual election date will be Nov. 3 and voting will run from 6 a.m.-6 p.m. seven locations in Marshall County. Voting will be open to registered voters in the county, no matter what typical precinct they vote.
The locations are:
• Marshall County High School upper gym lobby
