The line for day-before-last voter registrations is a dozen people deep outside the county elections office on Military Trail – but with the office closed for Columbus Day, Supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher is taking the applications by herself, at a table outside the locked doors.
Tomorrow is the last day for voters to register for the Nov. 6. general election.
Bucher said that there were employees on hand this morning inside the election headquarters, at the corner of Military Trail and Gun Club Road, but only for poll-worker training that was scheduled for today. But when she got there at 9 a.m., she said, people were outside, pounding on the doors, wanting to come in and register.
She dropped everything and set up a table outside and began taking registrations. “Hundreds” of people have come by, she said. “I just couldn’t leave them out there.”
