“If you have one of the reasons that would qualify, maybe you’re going to be working, going to be out of town during election day and the no-excuse voting period,” Erran Huber of the Jefferson County Clerk’s Office said. “Maybe you’re a student and you’re not going to be in town. Well now is the time.”
