Special Election for DeWitt Library Referendum is August 7
Clinton County Auditor and Commissioner of Elections Eric Van Lancker has announced that City of DeWitt voters will vote on a library improvement referendum on Aug. 7.
The DeWitt special election will allow citizens in that city to vote on a proposed $3.5 million bond issue for library improvements.
The polls for the Aug. 7 special election in DeWitt will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. and voting will take place in the Clinton County Satellite Office, 226 11th St., DeWitt.
Absentee voting on Proposition A will begin on July 9 in the Auditor’s Office at the Clinton County Administration Building, 1900 N. 3rd St., Clinton. That is the same day absentee ballots may be sent by mail from the Auditor’s Office. The last day to vote in the office will be Aug. 6. Requests for absentee ballots to be sent by mail can be filed at the Auditor’s Office now through July 27. All ballots that are mailed back to the Auditor’s Office must be postmarked by Aug. 6 to be counted.
Van Lancker said a satellite voting location will also be available for DeWitt voters. A satellite voting location is a polling place set up before the election day that allows voters to vote absentee. That satellite voting opportunity is scheduled for Aug. 1 from noon to 6 p.m. at the Clinton County Satellite Office, 226 11th St., DeWitt.
