While all eyes are on the presidential candidates campaigning in Iowa and New Hampshire, Escambia County and other Alabama voters will join the primary season Feb. 5.
For those not registered to vote in Escambia County, a deadline has been set for Jan. 25, said Odessa Williams with the Board of Registrar's office.
The qualifying deadline for potential candidates who plan to run for election in June has not been set at this time, circuit clerk Kenneth Taylor said.
Absentee ballots require an application by the voter, Taylor said.
County and municipal elections will be held in June with several county seats up for election in 2008, Sanks said.
The probate judge, circuit clerk and sheriff are the election officials for Escambia County, Sanks said.
For information regarding voter registration, contact the registrar's office by calling 867-0243.
