One thought on “Campaign Calendar

  1. Worth noting that while Sept. 11 is the final day for registering to vote on Oct. 6, anyone who votes during Early Voting, beginning Sept. 17, can register at the same time.

    (To reiterate, and perhaps clarify: the state permits same-day registration during early voting, but NOT on election day.)
