The 2012 General Election will be the first in Faulkner County that will have several early voting sites in Vilonia, Greenbrier and Mayflower. Early voting will begin on Oct. 22.
Early voting sites will include the county clerk’s office, the Faulkner County Library, the Greenbrier City Events Center, the Vilonia First Baptist Church and Mayflower City Hall. The courthouse times are: 8 a.m.-6 p.m., Oct. 22-26 and Oct. 29-Nov. 2; 10 a.m.-4 p.m., Oct. 27 and Nov. 3; and 8 a.m.-5 p.m. on Nov. 5.
Early voting for all other sites will be 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Oct. 22-26 and Oct. 29-Nov. 2; and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on Oct. 27. Early voting at off-site polling places will close at 6 p.m. on Nov. 2. All five locations for early voting will cover all precincts.
The Election Commission confirmed Tuesday that election law requires a poll worker to ask for identification from the voter, but the voter does not have to provide the identification in order to vote.
Poll worker training will take place at 6 p.m. Nov. 1 and at 10 a.m. Nov. 3.
All sample ballots are available on the Faulkner County website. All absentee ballots have been sent out. County Clerk Melinda Reynolds said more than 1,000 have been sent, and if there are any problems with the ballots, voters should contact the clerk’s office for a replacement.
