The attorney general’s office will not order Secretary of State Michele Reagan to tell counties to give voters an extra day to register to vote despite the deadline this year falling on a holiday.
In a letter to House Minority Leader Eric Meyer, Assistant Attorney General Dominic Draye acknowledged that when the date for performing certain functions falls on a holiday, state law allows that to be moved to the following day.
In this case, the deadline to register for the Nov. 8 election is end-of-day Monday, Oct. 10. That Monday, however, is Columbus Day and all state offices are closed.
