As of Tuesday, 2,514 absentee ballots had been cast at the Board of Elections office. However, persons wishing to cast an absentee or provisional ballot have until 2 p.m. Monday, Nov. 5.

The Board of Elections office, located on the ground level of the Carroll County Courthouse in Carrollton, will be open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. this Thursday (Nov. 1), 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Nov. 2, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Nov. 3, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Nov. 4 and 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. Nov. 5.
