Monday is the last day to register in the Nov. 6 general election, in which voters will mark their choice for candidates in races including Brown County judge.

Early voting begins Oct. 22 and ends Nov. 2.

Larry Franks, who was recently appointed Brown County elections administrator — replacing Karen Opiela, who resigned to move to San Antonio — said a voter can use the straight party selection in the Nov. 6 general election and still scroll down to any race and change just that race.

Doing so will not change any other election made by the straight party vote.

Franks demonstrated on a voting machine the process of choosing between Paul Lilly, the Republican Party nominee for county judge, Lilly’s opponent, write-in candidate Steve Fryar.

If a voter initially indicates a straight Republican ticket, the screen with the choice for county judge will come into view and Lilly’s name will be automatically marked. But a voter can use the wheel to scroll down to a block labeled “write-in.”

If a voter selects the “write-in” box, the screen changes to a keyboard. The voter would use the wheel to click on each letter to spell out Fryar's name, which would appear in a box at the top of the screen. 

A sheet of paper labeled “list of declared write-in candidates,” which will have Fryar’s name, will be attached to each voting machine, Franks said.

In other local issues, voters will approve or disapprove “the legal sale of all alcoholic beverages including mixed beverages.”

In the May school district, voters will select four of six candidates running for school board. The candidates are Frank Henderson, Tiffany G. Baker, Charles “Chuck” Woods, Ben McInnis, Bo E. Allen and Teri S. Muprhree.
