Deadline for primary election is approaching

February 5, 2020

 

 

A change of law for voting is what’s causing all Circuit clerk Offices to open this Saturday.  The deadline for registration usually would fall on a Saturday, but this year voters have more time.

 

 “All 82-County Circuit clerk’s offices will be open,” said Donna Jill Johnson, Lauderdale County Circuit Clerk.

 

With different elections comes different requirements.

 

 “Your federal election cycle is different than your state election cycle. People are used to voting for the election in the fall but in the presidential it’s called Super Tuesday,” said Donna Jill Johnson, Lauderdale County Circuit Clerk.

 

Super Tuesday is approaching, and the November election is just months away which will draw in heavy voter traffic.

 

 “It’s the largest turnout. You’ve got people that don’t vote during the governor’s race and senate race or your supervisors and they just wait and vote every four years,” said Donna Jill Johnson, Lauderdale County Circuit Clerk.

 

The county has a reputation of high voter turnout.

 

 “Lauderdale County is above the state average and we’re very proud of that,” said Donna Jill Johnson, Lauderdale County Circuit Clerk.
