residents who want to cast a ballot in the Aug. 18 primary have to be
registered by Monday, or they’re out of luck.
Those who aren’t registered, but want to, must register in person
at their local county elections office by filling out a form. On-line
registration, which is available most of the year, will not allow a new voter
to be on the books in time for the primary.
that would mean a prospective voter wouldn’t be able to cast a ballot on a
countywide proposal to continue a sales tax for law enforcement. Many cities
and towns and some school and fire districts also have primaries that will trim
the number of candidates for local office down to two for the November election.
