The Secretary of State's Office has extended mandatory hours from 8:30 to 4:30 on Saturday and Sunday at every county clerk's office in the state, according to a directive issued today by Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno.
Voters will have an opportunity to walk into those offices in those time frames on the weekend (and on Monday) prior to Election Day.
