Benefits of voting by absentee ballot are many

Well, the primary election is now in sight. Aug. 9, to be exact. A few hundred applications for an absentee ballot have been handed out by several people but there are more available for those who would want one.

Just think, no looking for a parking space, no waiting in line, no need to remember where you parked your car – nothing to worry about. Just get the ballot in the mail, vote at your leisure and get it back to the clerk’s office.
