Voters in the city of Lawrence and the Lawrence and Baldwin school districts may vote by absentee ballot if they'll be out of town and unable to vote in the Feb. 28 primary.
Douglas County Clerk Patty Jaimes said voters may obtain an absentee ballot by first filling out an affidavit attesting to their inability to get to the polls. The affidavit may be requested in person or by mail but must be completed before a ballot is issued.
Ballots, which may be filled out at the clerk's counter in the Douglas County Courthouse, 11th and Massachusetts, or at home, must be turned in by 7 p.m. election day.
The primary in the Baldwin school district will apply only to Position No. 3. Only voters who live in that voter district may cast ballots.
In the Lawrence school and city elections, voters will narrow at-large fields of candidates, and all registered voters may cast ballots.
