It's almost time for "see you at the polls."

Candidates to fill the unexpired 8th District County Commission seat vacated by the death of Brenda Grogan include: William "Bill" Dabbs, Phil Gentry, Andrew Hillyer, Russell Johnson, and Eddie H. O'Brien.

Anyone with questions about his or her ability to vote, the status of his/her voter registration, or early and absentee voting may contact the Greene County Election Office, at 218 N. Main St., by calling 798-1715.

"If the voters want to check on their status to make sure that everything is updated and that they are still in the files, call our office and we'd be glad to check on that," said Donna Burgner, Greene County administrator of elections.

"That way they will have time to come to register to vote, if needed."

Burgner also reminded voters to bring a government-issued photo ID for early voting or voting on Election Day.

Those who meet the requirements for absentee voting may submit a request to receive a ballot by mail through Oct. 30, she added.

"Again, contact our office," Burgner said. "We'll be glad to address their questions or concerns in regards to absentee voting."

(See this Saturday's edition of The Greeneville Sun for additional details on early and absentee voting, as well as for a sample ballot for the Nov. 6 election.)

The election office is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Extended hours will be offered during early voting, from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, and from 8:30 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Oct. 20 and 27.
