FAIRMONT — White Hall residents who are not registered to vote can now do so at the municipal building.

Charlie Mason, town recorder, said residents in White Hall who need to register so they can vote in the upcoming June election can do it at the town’s municipal building.

“There are forms they can fill out at the office, and that will save them a trip into the courthouse,” he said.

Mason said with the recently annexed Nichols Drive section, some residents are not registered to vote in White Hall.

“There are several people in that area that are not registered voters,” he said. “And there are also a few scattered around White Hall that are not registered voters.”

Mason said the last day to register at White Hall’s municipal building is May 16. The cut-off date to register to vote in Marion County is May 21.

“If they wait until after May 16 to register, they will have to go to the courthouse,” he said.

Early voting for White Hall’s municipal election will be held from Wednesday, May 29 through Saturday, June 8. Mason said residents can vote during this time at the municipal building every day from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. except for Fridays and Sundays.

During Monday’s meeting, council voted to close the office on Fridays. Mason said it will go into effect on April 26.

Council will meet at 7 p.m. Monday, April 29, at the municipal building, to discuss street repairs in White Hall.
