Harrison County Auditor Susan Bonham announces that curbside voting for the upcoming 2020 Primary Election is being offered by the Auditor’s Office.
It started Monday, May 4.
Designated parking spots in the county courthouse parking lot will be available for the curbside voting service.
Sign posts with an “assistance” button will be set up at the designated parking spots allowing the voters to alert the Auditor’s Office of someone needing to vote.
Staff will meet the voter in the parking lot to complete the absentee ballot request form and a ballot will be brought to the voter’s car.
The voter will then complete the ballot, insert the ballot into the absentee envelope, and sign the envelope.
All absentee ballots are placed in the vault for counting on Primary Election Day, which is June 2.
Primary elections are intended for members of the Republican and Democratic parties only. "No party" voters who choose to request a party’s ballot will have their voter registration officially changed to that political party.
Bonham still encourages voters to vote by mail during the COVID-19 pandemic as voting by mail is the safest option.
All registered voters should have received an absentee ballot request form in the mail last week that can be completed and mailed to the Auditor’s Office.
An absentee ballot request form can also be found in county newspapers.
