Sample ballot uploaded for upcoming election
Sep 25, 2012 5:00 pm
The sample ballot for the Nov. 6 election is now available online at the Wilson County Election Commission’s website.
The November ballot will feature elections in the offices of president, Senate, Congress, two in the state House of Representatives, a Wilson County Commission vacancy, Lebanon Special Schools District board member, as well as the Mt. Juliet, Lebanon and Watertown municipal elections.
In addition to candidates, the Lebanon ballot has a sales tax referendum, and the Mt. Juliet ballot has a city charter amendment and a question to authorize retail package stores in the city.
Phillip Warren, administrator of elections, cautioned voters to not be intimidated by a large sample ballot.
“The ballot you receive when voting will only include the offices and questions you are eligible to vote for,” he said. “Where you live determines what you are eligible to vote for.
“If you have moved since the last time you voted, please complete the form available online or come in person to the Election Commission office at 203 East Main Street in Lebanon to make sure your registration is correct and legal before voting in the November election.
“We encourage voters to be familiar with the ballot before they come to vote. By making the ballot available online, Wilson County voters have time to study the ballot, gather information and ask questions before coming to vote.”
To download or view the sample ballot, get a voter registration form or find out specific deadlines regarding voting, go to wilsonelections.org.
Early voting begins Oct. 17 at four locations in Wilson County, including Watertown Community Center, Lebanon-Wilson County Election Commission, Mt. Juliet Community Center and Gladeville Community Center.
“Avoid the rush, and vote early,” Warren said.
