FPS staff report

The Carroll County Board of Elections has estimated that 43% or 7,795 of the 18,128 registered voters will turn out for Tuesday’s Nov. 5 off -year general election.

The 23 voting precincts in the county will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. for voters to cast their ballots for village officials, school board candidates, trustees and one fiscal officer contest, along with several issues.

The issues include two countywide tax levies, an operating levy request in the Carrollton Exempted Village School District, four township levies and three issues in Minerva, including two tax levy renewals and approval of an electric aggregation program.

To accommodate voters, the Board of Elections office located on the ground level of the Carroll County Courthouse in Carrollton will be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. this Friday (Nov. 1) and from 8 a.m. to 12 noon Nov. 2. Absentee ballots may also be cast until 4 p.m.  Nov. 4, according to Amanda Tubaugh, director of elections.

New at the voting precincts this year will be electronic poll books which will reduce the time in checking registrations. However, voters must show some kind of identification when voting.
