Today is the Veterans Day holiday and many local and state offices are closed.

And while Pottawatomie County offices are among those closed for the holiday, the Pottawatomie County Election Board will be open as usual from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. today, said Election Board Secretary Jeannie Stover.

Because of Tuesday's major elections and since election results are certified by 5 p.m. on Fridays after an election, Stover said the office will be open to the public and they will be doing the usual work to certify election results by 5 p.m.

Stover said because of the elections falling the same week at Veterans Day, the state decided about a year ago that election boards across the state would be open today.

The election board is located at 14101 Acme Road. The office number is 273-8376.
