Deadline April 5 to register for May elections

The last day for Mount Vernon and Franklin County residents to register to vote in the local school elections will be Thursday, April 5.

Registration is available through the local voter registrar’s office located in the West Courthouse Annex at the north end of the Franklin County Law Enforcement Center. This is the same place where taxes are paid and vehicles are registered. See the March 29 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald for more information about voting dates and how to request a ballet by mail.
