The Orange County Supervisor of Elections Office will close at 1 p.m. Friday to prepare for Hurricane Irma, Supervisor Bill Cowles announced this morning.
It will remain closed at least through Monday, and reopening after that will be dictated by the storm’s impact on Orange County.
Monday, Sept. 11, also is the date when campaign treasurers’ reports are due for county races, and is the last day to register for the upcoming State House District 44 Special General Election, Cowles noted. The election is Oct. 10.
These dates are dictated by statute and his office has no authority to alter them, Cowles noted. In reference to campaign treasurers reports, they can also be mailed (postmarked) by the due date and the gray drop box located by the supervisor’s front door is another option, Cowles stated in a news release.
