Editor’s note: This version clarifies who would have received mail ballots and how provisional ballots are handled.
The Hill County Commission voted down a resolution to allow for mail-in ballots in the 2020 general election at their weekly business meeting Thursday, with Hill County Commissioners Diane McLean and Mark Peterson voting no and Hill County Commissioner Mike Wendland voting yes.
The resolution would have allowed the county to send ballots to provisional and active registered voters which they could fill out and return by mail as well as vote in person if they choose.
