Both chairmen said that they are offering transportation for voters for tomorrow’s election.

“We will be offering rides to the polls and rides to the drop box tomorrow during the day for anyone that needs a way to get to the poll,” said Wertz.

“Ask for a ride and get them to the polls,” said Salmon.
