Voter rolls are taking shape for next month's presidential election.
Tuesday was the last day to register.
Lisa Zuck, head of Voter Registration for Warren County, said she had to accept any registration forms which were postmarked by that day.
If there is no postmark on them, Zuck said she has to accept them within five days of the deadline. As of Wednesday afternoon, she was still processing forms.
"I don't know how many are registered," Zuck said. "I'm not that far."
During the most recent spring election, there were a total of 28,888 voters registered. However, Zuck said she has also received many forms from the state Department of Health informing her of the death of voters.
As a result, Zuck has to take their names off the voter rolls. Other factors which could impact the number include those who move to or from the county.
"I wouldn't have a guess at how many have switched parties," Zuck said. "I've just been swamped."
Among conditions influencing turnout are interest and weather. In addition, Zuck said there are a number of people voting with absentee ballots.
These include the elderly and "snow birds," who travel to warmer areas once the weather changes. Zuck noted a lot of military members also vote that way, particularly when they are stationed overseas.
For such service members, Zuck said they can have a ballot emailed to them or have it sent through the regular mail. In the last presidential election, there were over 1,300 absentee ballots cast.
"I've gotten a whole stack in over the last two days," Zuck said.
Just as four years ago, it will be a completely federal election because there are no local races on the ballot, Zuck said.
Those wishing to obtain an absentee ballot can come to her office, Zuck said, which is located in the courthouse. By the end of the week, she hopes to have voting machines in the hallway there to demonstrate for the voters.
