MILLER CO, AR (KSLA) -

Everyone is gearing up for the upcoming presidential election, and Miller County Circuit Clerks say the first item of business is absentee ballots.

"We have processed this year 145 absentee applications, and I do anticipate more applications coming in over the next week or so," says Ann Nicholas, Miller County Clerk.

Johnny Camp, a Miller County voter, intends to be an absentee voter.

"I will be out of the country on election day. [Voting absentee is important] so I can get my vote in for the presidential election," Camp says.

Camp says he's voted absentee for more than 10 years.

"It's not difficult at all. Just call up here and they will send you a form, and come pick up your voter's form," Camp says.

Election officials name three reasons that voters typically request an absentee ballot.

"This is for anyone who is going to be out of town, regardless of the reasons. School, work, if you are physically incapacitated or a resident of a long-care facility," Nicholas says.
