One-stop voting for Wayne County's November municipal and sanitary district elections starts Thursday and will continue through Nov. 2.

Voting will be held from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. at the Wayne County Board of Elections office on William Street.

There will be no Saturday or Sunday hours with the exception of Saturday, Nov. 2, when the hours will be from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.

Election Day is Nov. 5.

The deadline to request absentee ballots by mail is Oct. 29 at 5 p.m.

Same day registration is still in effect for this election, but it will no longer be allowed after Jan. 1, 2014.

Election Day polls open at 6:30 a.m. and close at 7:30 p.m.

Municipal elections are being held in Mount Olive, Seven Springs, Pikeville, Walnut Creek and Eureka. The sanitary districts with seats up for election are Belfast-Patetown, Eastern Wayne, Fork Township, Southeastern Wayne and Southern Wayne.

There is a change in the Pikeville Town Board election. Three people originally filed for the two board seats, including incumbent Commissioner Ward Kellum, who has since withdrawn. Also filing were Garrett Johnston and Eric Snoddy. The terms are for four years. Kellum's name has been removed from the ballot.

An article in Sunday's News-Argus incorrectly listed some information about the Walnut Creek Village Council election.

Steven D. "Pete" Benton and Mike Day are running for two open seats. Incumbent Danny Jackson is running to complete an unexpired term to which he was originally appointed.
