Two additional one-stop voting sites will open Saturday morning, bringing the total to five.

The two new locations are Fremont Town Hall, 120 E. Main St., Fremont, and the Johnston Ambulance Service office at 2803 U.S. 70 West. The two sites will be open from 1 to 5 p.m. through Friday, Oct. 31.

Already open are sites at the Wayne County Public Library, 1001 E. Ash St., Dudley Fire Station, 4533 U.S. 117 Alt. South at Dudley and the Woodmen of the World building, 3733 U.S. 117 North.

Those locations are open Monday and Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Wednesday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m.

Saturday, Nov. 1 is the final day for one-stop voting, and all five sites will be open from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

One-stop voting began Oct. 16 and as of close of voting Thursday, 13,591 people had cast ballots at the one-stop sites.

Each location has an area set aside where people may register and vote on the same day.

To do so, people must have a photo identification that has their correct address. Lacking that, a bill, such as a utility bill with the address, may be used.
