A number of absentee ballots have been sent to service members and other people requesting a ballot, Saline County Clerk Ken Bryant told the County Commission Tuesday, June 29.

"We've only had one come into the office and vote absentee so far," Bryant said.

Voters who will not be able to vote at their polling place on election day can request an absentee ballot in person or by mail.

According to the Secretary of State's website, the five reasons for voting absentee are: absence from the jurisdiction; incapacity due to illness or disability, including primary caregivers for people who are incapacitated due to illness or disability; religious belief or practice; employment as or by an election authority; and incarceration.

The commission will meet with homeowners on County Road 115 to discuss a road extension.

"There is a person building a house on a piece of property he bought and the road needs an extension," said Southern Commissioner Richard Hassler.

Following the meeting with homeowners, the commission will tour the APAC road project to review progress.
