Voter registration cards on hold

If you are waiting anxiously to receive your new voter registration card in the mail, you can quit pacing at your mailbox, because it has not yet been entered into the postal system. Although voter registrars for some counties have already mailed their cards, Franklin County’s Voter Registrar Sue Ann Harper has not . “I want to wait until closer to the deadline,” she said. “There are still other potential changes from the federal courts. I don’t want to add further to the voters confusion, or to the county’s expenses should the dates and/or districts change.” For more details about voter registration card mailing dates, see the January 12 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
