Administrator of Elections Dennis Stanley said with elections on the minds of voters, now is a good time to update your address if you have moved.
“We’ve had three petitions returned already and I've noticed some of the voters signing petitions have listed addresses that are different than what we have on file in our database," Stanley said. “It is very important for voters to keep their residential address up to date with our office in order to avoid unnecessary delays when they go to the polls next year," he added.
