ADA — Registered voters in Pontotoc County who became physically incapacitated after 5 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 28, 2008, won’t have to miss the Nov. 4 general election, County Election Board personnel said today.

According to the Election Board, state law permits registered voters who will be unable to go to the polls because they became incapacitated after 5 p.m. on Tuesday, October 28 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.
