Early voting begins

October 22, 2013

A light turnout Monday marked the first day of early voting in Howard County for the Nov. 5 constitutional amendments election.

“We've had eight so far,” said Howard County Election Administrator Saundra Bloom, commenting on the first four hours of voting Monday. “This is strictly for the constitutional amendments.”

So far, 13 people have cast early ballots for the state-wide election which will decided nine constitutional amendments. Early voting continues through Nov 1. from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday at the election office in the Howard County Courthouse.

This is the first election voters are required to show photo identification in order to participate.

“It really hasn't been a problem so far and I don't anticipate it to be,” Bloom said. “I'd say 50 or 60 percent of people who have voted in the last several years have given their driver's license or the identification to vote. Those forms of are easier to carry in their wallet than their voter certificate. I think most everyone will have an ID, so I'm not anticipating a difference so far.”
