Trenton City Clerk: 'Anyone Who Has to Work on Election Day Should Vote Absentee'
Voting is expected to take twice as long as normal due to the addition of a second ballot, according to Trenton City Clerk Trish Gearhart.
Voters might be surprised to see, not one but, two ballots when they go to vote on election day, according to Trenton City Clerk Trish Gearhart.
The November election ballot will be on two separate ballot sheets this year and both sheets are two-sided.
Gearhart said the addition of the second ballot could double voting times, causing people waiting in long lines at the polls to simply not vote.
She encouraged Trenton residents who have to work on election day to vote absentee.
"It's going to take voters a long time to vote this ballot and, if you have the day off go to the polling place, but if you have to work, have appointments or any other commitments, you should vote absentee," Gearhart said.
The second ballot was added due to the lack of space on a single card.
"It wouldn't all fit on a ballot so they added another," Gearhart said.
