Livingston County Clerk Sherry Parks recently issued a press release reminding the voters that absentee ballots are available for the June 2 Municipal Election. Anyone needing an absentee ballot may contact the clerk’s office to inquire about the process. The clerk’s office is open Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. The deadline to request to have a ballot mailed is at 5 p.m., on May 20. The clerk’s office will be open from 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., on Saturday, May 30. Special arrangements for absentee voting can be made by calling the clerk’s office at 660-646-8000, ext. 3.

Presiding Commissioner Ed Douglas said that residents who have business at the courthouse that cannot be completed by phone or email - especially those with absentee voting needs - can come into the courthouse.

“Particularly with voting season being here, we are asking anyone who has business they have to complete in the courthouse to go to the door, where a staff member will greet them and then they will call the office the person has business to complete,” he said noting that then that office will send a representative down to speak with the individual or a staff member will come to escort them to the office.

Starting today, if those entering do not have a mask, one will be provided, and all staff will be wearing masks.
