Registered voters in Delaware County who become physically incapacitated after 5 p.m. Tuesday, October 26, won’t have to miss the November 2 General Election and Special Election for the Town of West Siloam Springs County Election Board Secretary Dixie Smith said today.

Smith said state law permits registered voters who will be unable to go to the polls because they became incapacitated after 5 p.m. Tuesday, October 26, to vote on an emergency basis. “Physical incapacitation” includes a variety of conditions—injury, illness, childbirth—that prevent a person from voting in person at the polls on Election Day.

If you think that you or someone you know fits into this category, contact the County Election Board office at 918-253-8762 as soon as possible for more information,” Smith said.
