[February 10, 2009]  Logan County Clerk Sally Litterly reminds voters that today is the last day for grace period registration and grace period voting for the Feb. 24 consolidated primary election in Lincoln. If a voter has missed the previous deadline for registration, he or she may come to the county clerk's office to register and vote in the city primary election as a "grace period voter." This must be done no later than Feb. 10.

HardwareEarly voting for registered voters in Logan County began Feb. 2 and will continue through Feb. 19. In-person absentee voting will continue in the office through Feb. 23.

Litterly reported that only 28 voters have cast in-person absentee, grace period or early votes to date for the upcoming election.

"Four years ago we did not have early or grace period voting, and the voter turnout was 20 percent in the city primary election," Litterly said. "It is my hope that we exceed that turnout. However, following the comparison trend from the general election, based on early, grace and absentee voting prior to general Election Day in November, it appears that this election may be a low turnout as well."

The veteran county clerk encourages Lincoln voters to cast ballots early if they anticipate being absent on the primary election day, Feb. 24.

Litterly's office is preparing for the Lincoln primary and will change gears two days after the primary to be ready for the consolidated election for the entire county.

For all voters who have moved, it is necessary to register the change of address in order to be qualified to cast a ballot in the February city election. A registrant must provide two forms of identification in order to register to vote.

Voters with questions should contact the Logan County clerk's office at 732-4148.
