Voter registration may be completed in the County Clerk's office during the hours from 8 a.m. to 12 noon and 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Voters who have had a change of address in the county need to update their new physical address in order to keep their voter registration active. Failure to keep addresses current will result in the voter being removed after the passing of two general elections.

Applicant shall state name, address at which they are registered, reason for voting an absent ballot, the political party ballot they wish to vote and the address to which the ballot is to be mailed.
