Barbara Gunter, Bedford County’s voter registrar, is expecting a busy election day.
“Voter registration has been higher than normal.” she said.
Gunter said some of the registrations they have received have been duplicates; the person turned out to be already registered, but did it again to be sure.
Absentee balloting is also above normal. There is still time to request an absentee ballot, although it is too late to request an absentee ballot to be sent by mail.
