Printing delays in Albany run-off

February 23, 2004

Albany-- The "Super Tuesday" elections are eight days away, but you can cast your ballot now.

Early voting started Monday morning.

Albany voters in Ward Four will also cast a separate ballot in the run-off between incumbent City Commissioner Bo Dorough and Joanne Pope.

Delays in printing ballots for the run-off, however, have forced election workers to turn away some early voters. Elections Supervisor Carolyn Hatcher says, "Yes, we have had a couple people and they said oh well I'll come back . We haven't had any complaints, not to me personally, or the people working here."

The Ward Four ballots are expected Tuesday, but election workers will accept early voting in that race through Monday, instead of Friday, because of the delay.

Besides the run-off, voters will also choose between the 2003 state flag and the 2001 state flag in the referendum vote.

And, in the Democratic Presidential Primary, candidates like Howard Dean and Wesley Clark that have since dropped out of the race still have their name on the ballot.
