Registered voters can cast ballots from today through Sunday at the Allegany County Board of Elections at 8 Willets Avenue (State Route 19) in Belmont and at Wellsville Village Offices at 23 North Main Street, with hours for each shown on the graphic accompanying this story.

Extended hours for in person absentee voting also is available until 7PM today and Thursday at the Belmont location only for those who intend to be out of the county on Election Day and for early voting hours.
