“Do not go to your regular Election Day precinct during early voting,” Madison County Administrator of Elections Kim Buckley said.

The ballot includes races for president, U.S. House, and state representative.

Buckley said they expect a big crowd. “Every day we just get many, many phone calls asking us about the dates and the hours,” she said.

Oct. 11 was the last day to register to vote in this election. “If you’re not registered to vote, you cannot vote in this election,” Buckley said.

Election workers said you must have a state or federally issued photo ID in order to cast your ballot. “Most people use their driver’s license,” Buckley said. “You can use a passport.”

Voters can cast ballots from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday. “On the last two days, Nov. 2 and Nov. 3, we will remain open until 6 p.m.,” Buckley said.

Early voting runs through Nov. 3.

If you plan to vote absentee, the election commission office said those ballots must be returned by Election Day on Nov. 8.
