Ballots available at Douglas County Courthouse

December 5, 2005

Douglas County Clerk Jamie Shew said ballots for the special Dec. 22 election for Baldwin City arrived late Friday and are available at the courthouse.

"We've got ballots today," Shew said. "Starting Monday, they can advance vote in person at the courthouse."

Voters can mark their ballots in advance of Dec. 22 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the courthouse in Lawrence. Absentee ballots can also be applied for. A form is available at the courthouse and also online at the douglas-county.com Web site. They can be printed out and mailed or faxed to the courthouse, he said.

The Signal will continue to update its Web site with additional information. Voters are being asked to decide whether Sunday sales of alcohol in package form should be allowed in Baldwin. The Baldwin City Council approved those sales in September. A protest petition was filed forcing the rare December vote.
