Mail-in voting packet

Beth Rothermel, Washington County clerk, shows what the mail-in voting packet looks like during the Lions Club meeting Monday.

Early voting begins Tuesday at the Washington County Courthouse Annex building at 8 a.m. While the setup may look a little different due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, citizens will be able to practice their constitutional right to cast their ballot for who they believe should be elected for a variety of local, state and national positions.

Similar to the runoff election in July, voters will receive a free pen to fill out the ballot and take home. According to County Clerk Beth Rothermel, this act came from the desire to eliminate the potential of passing germs to one another by touching the same writing utensil.
