Orland Township will serve as an early voting site in advance of the November 6 general election, according to the office of Orland Township Supervisor Paul O’Grady.
Heavy voter turnout is anticipated during this election, so citizens are encouraged to take advantage of early voting. As an early voting site, Orland Township also serves as a designated voter registration grace period site. Those who still need to register to vote must show two forms of identification in order to register and then they will cast their ballot immediately after registering.
Orland Township will have a Township nurse on site each day during early voting for those individuals who still need to get their annual flu shot, a pneumonia shot and / or would like a free blood pressure check.
“Since so many residents visit Orland Township to take advantage of early voting, we thought having flu and pneumonia shots available would be beneficial,” said Supervisor O’Grady. “Everyone has a packed schedule these days and being able to cross a few items off your to-do list in one stop can be helpful.”
Orland Township’s early voting hours are:
- Monday, Oct. 22 through Saturday, Oct. 27 – 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
- Sunday, Oct. 28 – 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- Monday, Oct. 29 through Friday, Nov. 2 – 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
- Saturday, Nov. 3 – 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
- Sunday, Nov. 4 – 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- Monday, Nov. 5 – 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
