Simmons informed Warner that Tucker County is prepared for the upcoming election in updating voter registration rolls, the former consolidation of our precincts, preparing notification for poll workers, and continuing to perform in leading the state in voter turn out on Election Day.
The Secretary of States Office along with the Tucker County Clerk’s Office has recently conducted sending out confirmation notices to voters in the county, so voters will have the opportunity to update their address if they have moved.
The confirmation notices are essential to keeping voter registration rolls up to date and clean.
Simmons also informed Warner that we now have 9 precincts in our county. Precinct 10 has been consolidated into Precinct 24, and Precinct 1 has been consolidated into Precinct 2. Voters have received new cards and notice of the consolidation change that had occurred in 2023.
Simmons also informed Warner that Tucker County poll workers should be receiving notice in the mail of their upcoming appointment in March of 2024.
Tucker County also led the state in voter turnout for the Primary Election in 2022 with 44% of their registered voters casting a ballot in that election.
Simmons stated that she would like to continue that trend again in the upcoming 2024 Primary Election.
