City residents can walk into the office at 2500 S. Washington Ave. between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday to register to vote. They can also request absentee ballots in person, fill them out and turn them in on the spot.

Polls are open from 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. on Election Day, Aug. 3. Absentee ballots must be returned to a local clerk’s office or via drop box by 8 p.m. that day.
