Tuesday, July 17 is election day, but early voting continues today and tomorrow (Friday and Saturday, July 13 and 14.). If you can’t participate early, remember that the polls are open Tuesday from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Because turnout is expected to be very low – in the single digits – these races will be determined by the most committed and active citizens. Make your voice heard.
Democrats have one statewide runoff on the ballot — for Labor Commissioner.
Republicans have four statewide runoffs on the ballot — for Lt. Governor, Superintendent of Public Instruction, Insurance Commissioner, and Secretary of State.
