Voters in Fayette County are hitting the polls early to cast their vote for the special school levy election.
Early voting started in Fayetteville on Thursday, January 4. Votes can be cast at the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Building. This is to vote on the 50-year-levy that funds programs for students and staff within the school system. People we spoke with wanted to remind you that every vote counts.
“A lot of years ago I ran for office and I lost by one vote, so to me it’s very important that everyone gets out and votes because it can change everything,” Election Worker, Libby Lucas, said.
Polls are open on the weekdays from 8-4 and on Saturdays from 9-5. General election will be held January 20 and that’s also when voting for the levy will end. You can also apply for an absentee ballot and the deadline for that is January 14.
