Federal, state and county offices are closed today for Columbus Day.
That includes the county election office, even as the deadline looms to register to vote in next month’s election.
Tuesday is the deadline for voter registration, but there will be a registration grace period that runs from Wednesday until November 3.
County residents will be able to register to vote at the county building during that time, but must cast their ballot right there when they register, they will not be allowed to vote at their regular polling place on November 6th.
Meanwhile, although other government offices are closed, Springfield city government is open, and downtown parking meters will be enforced.
