Early voting in person for Runoff Primary begins Monday

In-person early voting for the July 31 Runoff Primary elections begins Monday, July 23 and continues through Friday, July 27. The Runnoff Primary has a shortened period for early voting in person. Voters are eligible to vote in the election if they were registered to vote 30 days prior to the election (by July 2 since the 30th day was on a weekend) even if they did not vote in the General Primary elections. If they voted in one party’s primary in May and/or signed a petition for a candidate of a particular political party, they must vote in that same party’s runnoff election. For a listing of candidates to be included on the ballot and other voting parameters, see the July 19 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald
