I'm going to be out of town Feb. 27. I want to vote in the primary election, but I don't want to get an absentee ballot. Any ideas?
Provided you're a registered voter, you may vote in advance from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays at the Douglas County Courthouse, 1100 Mass. Advance voting continues until noon Feb. 26. If you're not registered to vote, you're out of luck - for the primary, anyway. Monday was the registration deadline for the primary, which will cull the fields of candidates for Lawrence City Commission and Lawrence school board for the April 3 general election. Douglas County residents have until March 19 to register to vote for the general election.
