Chief Deputy Clerk of Elections, Teri Loew said in-person voting at 22 precincts in Calhoun County is available until 8 p.m.  “A list of precinct locations is posted on our 2021 Election’s webpage. “

Loew said voters will see a small ballot today containing just one or two local proposals. Proposal language for all 5 districts can also be found on the county’s 2021 Election webpage.

“You may also View Your Sample Ballot online before going to the polls. Check it out at Enter your information in the required fields then click the green VIEW the ballot button. “

Loew said if you are not registered at your current residence and have resided there 30 days or more, you can visit your local clerk’s office (or for the City of Albion) today before 8:00p to register and obtain an absentee ballot.

UNOFFICIAL SPECIAL ELECTION RESULTS will be reported after the polls close on Election Night.  Results will be updated throughout the night until all 22 Calhoun County precincts including absentee votes have been reported and 100% appear.

(Note: precinct and absent voter counting board results may be sent to the County at different times; so partial results may appear in a precinct without showing 100% reported; all 22 precincts have separate absent voter counting boards.) Click ‘Detailed Results’ to see which precincts have reported: white indicates precinct has not reported, yellow means precinct is partially reported (as explained above), and green means all results for the precinct have reported. Again, unofficial results are not complete until 100% appears!

When 100% reporting is listed these figures will include all absentee votes cast. Provisional Votes, if any, will be tabulated within 6 days following the election.

Loew hopes you’ll remind others to insure a good voter turnout.  “Feel free to pass this on to coworkers, constituents, family, and friends. Remember voting is a privilege, exercise your right to vote on this Election Day, Tuesday, May 4, 2021! “


LOOK: Stunning vintage photos capture the beauty of America's national parks

Today these parks are located throughout the country in 25 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The land encompassing them was either purchased or donated, though much of it had been inhabited by native people for thousands of years before the founding of the United States. These areas are protected and revered as educational resources about the natural world, and as spaces for exploration.
