[October 31, 2012]  Do you want to avoid lines on Election Day? Registered voters who desire to cast a ballot at the county clerk's office rather than in their polling place may now vote in person in the clerk's office, located on the second floor of the Logan County Courthouse. In-person absentee voting continues through Monday.

Registered voters may also make application by mail to vote absentee. Students and out-of-county workers can conveniently obtain an application to vote absentee by contacting the county clerk's office or can access the form on the clerk's website at Applications will be received by the county clerk until Thursday. No ballots may be sent by mail after Nov. 1, as provided by law. No excuse is needed to vote by absentee by mail or in person.

Early voting, similar to absentee voting, will also be conducted in the county clerk's office through Saturday. Early voting allows all registered voters to cast a ballot prior to Election Day by voting at the predesignated site of the county clerk's office. Early voters must be registered and present a valid picture ID showing their current voter registration address.

Office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., and 9 a.m.-noon on Saturday.

Any questions concerning voting may be directed to 217-732-4148.
