Earlier today we ran a story about changes in the polling places due to the lava crisis. In it, we misinterpreted an Elections Commission press release, and said that October 28 was the last day to vote via absentee ballot. That was incorrect. Today was the last day on which voters could request an absentee ballot. In preparation for the lava flow, county election officials mailed absentee mail applications to voters in the area and set-up an early vote location at Nanawale Community Center, which is open through October 31, 2014.
We regret the error.
