The early voting period for the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election begins Friday, and Appomattox County General Registrar Patricia Morton wants to make sure the county’s citizens understand the process in this election cycle, some of which is altered due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Although more people may choose to vote by mail this year in order to avoid crowds on the Nov. 3 Election Day, precincts will still be open for those who prefer to vote in person.
Election Day voting is not permitted at the Appomattox County Voter Registration Office. However, in-person early voting is available at the office from Friday, Sept, 18, through Saturday, Oct. 31. Office hours are 8:30-11:30 a.m. and 12:30-4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday. The office also will be open the last two Saturdays in October, the 24th and 31st, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
