Only 2 days left to register if you want to vote in November's election. The deadline is October 4th. Registration forms are at all the Allen country libraries. You can mail in a form, or register in person at the city county building. But If you don't want to leave home to register, there's good news. As of this year you can register online. All you have to do is enter some information, clicks submit and you’re ready to vote.
Gwen Sordelet, the republican Chief Deputy of Voter Registration, says “We've been very busy, especially with the online registration. You can be in your own home in your PJ's. We make it very easy.”
The state launched the web site in July. Registration has tripped each month since then. Sordelet says “It's a lot more helpful that they don't have to stand in line. We're not seeing the lines that we have before.”
The voter hits submit, the information is sent to the registration office, and processes immediately.
The republican chief deputy at the Allen county registration office says they've had very few problems with the website. Sordelet says “We've had people do it twice or 3 times. So maybe they don't think it accepted it for some reason.”But that doesn't mean they get to vote 3 times.
The new option seems to be attracting new voters. Sordelet says “We are seeing new registration. So I'm hoping that is the trend.’
If you chose to send in your form by mail, make sure it's postmarked before midnight Monday. The registration office, located in the City County building, will be open until 5:00 p.m. on Monday, October 4th.
