The clock is ticking to Decision 2012...a clock that Carla Woodall is watching closely.
"My primary duties are to serve as the absentee election manager and handle anyone who may not be in town or is not able to go to the polls on election day of Nov. 6th." Which means she is already hard at work.
"We've started accepting applications for an absentee ballot..the process is you must apply for the ballot and complete the application."
You can get your hands on one of those applications by going to your local registrar's office or..."You can go online to the Secretary of State's website at sos.state.al.us."
And after that, the rest of the work is up to you.
It doesn't matter if you're registering to vote for the first time or you're turning in an absentee ballot form, you have two options. You can either hand deliver it to your local registrar or you can go to the post office and mail it off.
These options will come in handy for Lauri Peters-Gillis who may end up voting in the Wiregrass.
"I am a registered voter in Florida but since I've recently moved to Alabama I will go back to Florida for this year." But next year may be a different story; however...
"Every vote is important...if you don't vote, you don't have a say so as to the outcome of whatever happens."
So it's important to take the step now to ensure that your vote actually counts come November.
