With the early voting period now closed, voters have one final chance to make their voice heard at the ballot box when Election Day rolls around on Tuesday, Nov. 5.
Polling places across Walker County will be open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Ten proposed constitutional amendments are up for voters’ consideration as well as a measure that would expand emergency services in northern Walker County.
A total of 1,976 voters in Walker County checked-in during the two-week early voting period, according to Walker County elections manager Julie Cooper.
Voters have been adjusting to using new electronic ballot marking devices that were introduced during early voting this year.
This new voting system provides our voters the latest in voting technology while still maintaining a paper ballot trail,” county elections officer Diana McRae said. “It is important for voters to know they will no longer be voting a traditional pre-printed ballot, but rather they will be now marking a ballot card electronically before submitting it for tabulation.”
