KSCB News - October 21, 2010 12:00 am

Less than a week remains for registered voters in Texas County to apply for absentee ballots to be mailed to them for the November 2nd General Election, County Election Board Secretary Kimberly Sloat said today.

Applications for absentee ballots must be in the hands of the County Election Board no later than 5 p.m. on Wednesday, October 27th to be processed.

Any registered voter eligible to vote in the election may vote by absentee ballot without stating a reason, Sloat said. Absentee voters may apply in person at the County Election Board office or they may send their applications by mail, by fax, or by telegraph.

–Registered voters who are physically incapacitated and voters who care for

physically incapacitated persons who cannot be left unattended may apply for

absentee ballots only by mail, by fax, or by telegraph.

–Registered voters who are confined to nursing homes in the county may apply

only by mail, by fax, or by telegraph.

–Military personnel, residents of Texas County living overseas and the spouses and

dependents of each group are entitled to vote without being registered. They may
