For those who want to vote in person, it should be possible to go to the polling place of a nearby precinct. However, your ballot may be considered provisional (not counted until they verify that you aren't trying to vote more than once).

Is it me, or does mail-in voting change the whole concept of Election Day? Why is the Registrar pushing for this, to save money? It's a shame, because going to the polls brings neighbors together and makes us a community.
