2022 Primary –  Notice of Offices to be Filled

2022 Primary – Notice of Election

NOTICE

Please be advised these are sample ballots and because the law requires rotation of the candidate’s names, the chronological order as listed may be different in your precinct.

Some listed candidates are elected in specific districts and because of this some names listed on the sample ballots may not appear on the ballot in your precinct.

Lincoln County uses an optic scanner to count the ballots.  The voter is required to blacken the oval with the special marking device they will be handed as the polls when they receive their ballot.  If a voter chooses to write in a name they are required to blacken the oval by the name they write-in for that race.

We are currently looking for recruits. A poll worker must be a registered voter in Lincoln County and be able to work on election day from 7:00 a.m. to approximately 9:00 p.m.

 

Once appointed, even if you volunteered, poll workers enjoy the same civil leave protection as those who serve on jury duty. Your employer must allow an employee the time to serve without threat of or loss of personal or holiday pay, sick leave, loss of overtime pay, or any other form of penalty for absence from work when serving as an election poll worker.

 

Should you decide to become a poll worker, you will be required to attend a training session prior to each primary and general election.
