Voter registration events taking place at libraries


The Jackson County Public Library and Jackson County Clerk Amanda Lowery are partnering for National Voter Registration Day from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday in the lobby of the Seymour Library, 303 W. Second St.

The Crothersville Library, 120 W. Main St., will have registration forms available from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and the Medora Library, 27 W. Main St., will have registration forms available from 2 to 6 p.m.

To register, people must be U.S. citizens, present a driver’s license or state identification card and must be 18 by the next Election Day (May 8, 2018). This is a free service.
