Voting machines have been checked and absentee balloting is 
underway, as officials continue to prepare for the November 5 general 
    Voters will make decisions regarding many statewide races that day, 
including choosing who will serve as governor for the next four years.
    The absentee voting machine is open and available for all voters who 
will be out of town on election day. The machine is located in the 
Wayne County Clerk's Office and is available to use during regular 
business hours.
    Wayne County Clerk Heather Piercy noted that her office will be open 
every Saturday through election day from 8 a.m. until 12 noon to 
allow voters access to the absentee machine.
    Piercy's office is also accepting applications for traditional paper 
absentee ballots, which are used by the sick or the elderly who 
cannot get out to vote at the polls.
    The deadline to apply for paper absentee ballot will be October 29.
    Paper absentee ballots must be received in the mail by the clerk's 
office by election day.
    Anyone who has questions regarding the upcoming election should contact the Wayne County Clerk's office at (606) 348-6661.
