Elections are coming

Dear Editor:

Primary Election Day is Aug. 20, but preparing for them happens sooner, if you wish to participate. Early in-person voting is available for a week, three days prior to Election Day at a few various county buildings throughout Volusia. If you plan on voting by mail, deadline to request a ballot is Aug. 8. A recent change in law implemented a new request schedule. A request to receive a vote-by-mail ballot covers all elections from the date a request was submitted through the end of the calendar year for the next ensuing regularly scheduled general election. Change of voter registration deadline is July 22. (All registered voters, regardless of party affiliation, can vote in the primary election in August for all nonpartisan seat elections). 

It is also qualifying time for candidates for many city, county and state seat elections. Deadline to qualify is Friday June 14 at noon. If you wish to run for office, now is the time to contact respective government elections offices to seek information of requirements. Most candidates will want to contact Volusia Division of Elections office. They can be reached online at www.VolusiaElections.gov or by phone 386-736-5930 or you can visit the elections office at 1750 S. Woodland Blvd in DeLand. 

I want to thank ahead of time all of the candidates for taking time out of their lives to run for office and their willingness to serve to protect the rights of "We The People" and also all voters who exercise their right to voice change in their government at the ballot booth.

Joe Hannoush
