As of this week, early voting is under way at the Sheridan County Courthouse.

County Clerk Eda Schunk Thompson announced early voting started Monday.

Thompson said voters can come to the courthouse between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on weekdays until 5 p.m. Aug. 17 – the Monday before election day – to cast their ballots. She said voters will start at the election office on the second floor, where they will receive ballots. Voting is in the commission chambers.

Thompson said all of the county’s voting equipment has been certified, including the equipment used for early voting.

Thompson said the courthouse grounds are being checked, probably a few times a day, to ensure there are no political signs within 100 yards of the building. She said that includes bumper stickers on vehicles that are parked at the courthouse.

There has been a change in the election code, she said, that exempts a vehicle belonging to someone who has parked temporarily to do business at the courthouse. But a vehicle belonging to a county employee or other person who will be at the courthouse all day will have to be moved.
