Election Day, Tuesday Nov. 6 is almost here! If you are new to Killingworth, just turned voting age, or have not registered in the past, here's some information to help you get to the polls on time on Election Day.
Registering to Vote:
If you have not yet registered to vote, you still can do so in person until Tuesday, October 30.
Anytime during their business hours from 8am to 4pm, you can go to the Town Clerk's office at Killingworth Town Hall and register to vote.
The Killingworth Registrar of Voters will hold a special registration session at the Killingworth Town Hall on the last day to register, Tuesday October 30 from 9am to 8pm.
It is too late to mail your voter registration form as that date (October 23) has already passed.
On Monday, November 5, anyone who became of age, citizenship or changed residence since October 30 can register to vote.
Where to Vote:
All Killingworth voters head to one location to vote - Killingworth Elementary School. Polls will be open from 6am to 8pm on November 6.
Absentee ballots are available from the town clerk's office.
Linda Dudek, town clerk for Killingworth, said registered voters who know they will be away on November 6 can do one of several things: they can come to her office at town hall and fill out an application for an absentee ballot and receive a ballot and vote then; they can fill out an application online first and bring it into her office; or someone else can pick up an application only (never the ballot) from her office. The actual voter is the only one who can receive the ballot. Remember, you cannot vote for someone else.
In the past, Dudek said she or one of her office staff have brought an application out to the vehicle in the parking lot of town hall, when necessary.
"We will be happy to go out to the car and hand the voter the absentee ballot application and ballot if they cannot come into our building due to a disability," said Dudek.
