Cuming County Clerk Bonnie Vogltance said this morning (Wednesday) that the Secretary of State’s Office is strongly encouraging counties to send out an early voter application to all registered voters for the May primary election.

Vogltance said her office plans to comply and that the applications will be mailed to all active registered voters except those living in the vote-by-mail precincts and those who have already sent in an application. Voters are asked to fill them out as soon as possible and return them to help the office staff out.
