Absentee ballots coming soon for Lee County

TUPELO – Lee Countians can start voting absentee by Tuesday for the Nov. 2 general election, according to Lee County Circuit Clerk Joyce Loftin.
Ballots are likely to arrive after the Lee Justice Center office opens Monday, but she advised voters to wait until Tuesday, just to be safe.
Plenty of registered voters are eligible to vote absentee, which is voting ahead of time – from people over 65 and folks who can’t leave work or will be out of the county to college students and people who know they’ll be in the hospital.
It’s for the military and many other circumstances, so Loftin urged anyone with questions to call her office at (662) 841-9024.
The circuit clerk’s office also will be open for absentee voting from 8 a.m until noon on the two Saturdays before the election.
Oct. 2 at noon is the deadline to walk into the clerk’s office to register to vote in the Nov. 2 election.
Mail-in registration applications must be postmarked no later than Oct. 2.
