Monday’s rainfall did not stop workers from setting up polling places across Marion County.
Valerie Dornberger, Marion County clerk, and a team of helpers were out Monday setting up polling places throughout the county.
Because one polling site in Hannibal was not available Monday morning, Dornberger and her crew did not arrive in Hannibal until the afternoon.
Polls open at 6 a.m. Tuesday. and will close at 7 p.m. However, those in line at 7 p.m. will be permitted to fill out a ballot. People in the process of filling out a ballot at 7 p.m. will be allowed to finish voting.
It is possible there could be some lines seen at polling places. Dornberger anticipates a voter turnout in excess of 50 percent could be seen in Marion County.
A lengthy ballot could require voters to spend more time completing the election process.
Dornberger and her team will spend much of Wednesday collecting voting machines and other election apparatus.
