Early Voting Open, Today thru Monday at Courthouse, for What Used to Be “May Primary” – Vote For or Against Biden or Trump – Only 320 Votes Cast, So Far!!

Thursday, February 29th, 2024

Early voting Vote electionFirst, this is being written as an editorial explanation, not as a news article.

Early voting is taking place at the Drew County Courthouse, today, through Monday, including Saturday, for the preferential primary for President of the United States, and other offices.  Election day will be Tuesday at the regular Drew County polling centers.

This is the election that used to be called the “May primary“ but it has been moved forward to March 5.

This is the election where you can vote for or against President Joe Biden, or the other Democratic candidates, to be the Democratic nominee for president.

If you vote in the Republican primary, this is where you can vote for or against former president Donald Trump, or the other Republican candidates to represent the Republican party in November against the Democratic primary winner.

This was not meant to tell you who to vote for or against, but simply to explain the importance of the current election, and tell you who is being voted for, or against, at the courthouse between now and Tuesday, which is “Election Day“.
