Absentee ballot deadline nears

Probate Judge Wes Allen would like to remind Pike County residents that any qualified elector may vote an absentee ballot by mail or in person at the absentee election manager’s office located in the Pike County Courthouse.

“Absentee applications are available at the absentee election manager’s office. Residents should contact Mrs. Audrey Milton at the courthouse,” Allen said.

The deadline to apply for an absentee ballot for the Nov. 2 general election is Oct. 28. Completed absentee applications must provide the Alabama residence where the voter is registered to vote, even if the ballot is to be mailed to another address where the applicant regularly receives mail.If you have moved and have not updated your polling place, contact the local Board of Registrars and update your address prior to applying for an absentee ballot.

Any completed application must be returned by the voter in person or be sent by US Mail. “I would like to remind everyone that no one, not even a family member, can return another persons application. Multiple applications cannot be mailed in the same envelope,” Allen said..
