Prop. 6 would create funding for water projects; early voting begins Monday


Early voting in the Nov. 5 constitutional amendment election begins Monday, Oct. 21, and continues through Friday, Nov. 1, at the Clay County Courthouse Annex, located at 214 N. Main St., in Henrietta.

Clay County’s 16 voting precincts will be consolidated to six polling places on election day due to historically low voter turnout in constitutional amendment elections.

The election marks the first in which voter ID laws are in effect. Voters must provide picture identification, such as a driver’s license, state issued ID card or military ID before casting a ballot. The Department of Public Safety will be on hand during the first week of early voting to provide Electronic Identification Certificates to voters who do not bring picture ID. See related story.
