People will be able to cast their ballots from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays, Oct. 26 and Nov. 2, and Sundays, Oct. 27 and Nov. 3.
Early voting will be allowed from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 28, Thursday, Oct. 31 and Friday, Nov. 1. Also, early voting will be from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 29 and Wednesday, Oct. 30.
Voting on Election Day, Nov. 5, will be 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. in the county’s 27 polling places in the 10 towns.
