Voters who want their votes counted in the April 1 election for Sallisaw Police Chief and who vote by absentee ballots, should apply now for those absentee ballots.
At the February 11 city election, the Police Chief candidates, Sandy Girdner and Terry Franklin, re- ceived the exact same number of votes resulting in the special election.
Cindy Osborn, Sequoyah County Election Board secretary, said applications for absentee ballots will be accepted until 5 p.m. March 26. If ballots are returned by mail, they must be returned by 7 p.m. April 1.
Absentee ballot applications are available at the election board office at 110 E. Creek in Sallisaw.
