Primary Election 2016: Absentee voting machines open for voting

By Ed Waggener

The Absentee Voting Machine in the office of Adair County Court Clerk Lisa Greer was ready for voters a few minutes ago, at 12pmNoonCT, today, Tuesday, April 26, 2016, Clerk Greer said. She said that the Board of Elections checked out the voting machines for the Primary Election on Tuesday, May 17, 2016 and that everything is in order for that election.

Voting in the Primary Election is expected to have a strong turnout, especially because of the Democratic Presidential primary and the fervor, locally, in the Republican race for U.S. Congress, 1st District.

And, because of the extraordinary turnout in the Republican Caucus, on March 5, 2016, County Clerks are resting easier. They had feared that many Republican voters would show up at the primary election and be upset when they could not vote in a GOP Presidential primary.

The Absentee Voting Machine in the Courthouse will be available in regular office hours through 4pmCT, Monday, April 16, 2016, Clerk Greer said.
