Clay County Clerk's Office Preps for General Election
With the 2016 General Election just over a month away, Clay County Clerk Pat Poole, and her staff, are in the process of updating voter records. The work is being done in preparation for the election, set for Tuesday, Nov. 8.
"We ask if anyone has moved, changed their name or need to confirm they are an active voter to please come by the office, or call us at 870 598-2813," Poole offered. "Correct voting records will speed the process on Election Day--and, we'll work diligently to make all the corrections needed."
Those wanting additional information in the western district may also visit the courthouse in Corning.

Meanwhile, early voting will begin on Monday, Oct. 24, and the office will be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Fridays. The office will also observe special Saturday hours, and will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. during the period. Early voting for this year's election will end at 5 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 7.
