Yesterday was the last day to register to vote, and Tuolumne County Elections Clerk Tim Johnson says voter registration numbers are up.
“For this November election, out voter registration numbers are higher than they´ve ever been,” Johnson said Monday.
For now, Johnson and his team have some paperwork to do, thanks to all the last-minute registrations that had to be turned in or postmarked by yesterday.
“[It´ll take] a day or so to get those keyed into our Voter Registration Management System. We´re supposed to have the 15-day close to the Secretary of State´s office by the 26th of October,” Johnson added.
October 26 is the last day for registered voters to apply for absentee ballot, too.
