Early Voting Begins Across Indiana

9-29 Election Board Test-1.jpg
Vanderburgh County Election Board members execute a mock election Thursday, Sept, 29. The votes are entered via touch screen. The machine then prints a small paper ballot to be tabulated.

Polling is underway at Evansville's Old National Events Plaza

Early voting for the November 8th Election is underway in Evansville and across Indiana. WNIN’s John Gibson has details:

Local registered voters can cast ballots at the Old National Events Plaza Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., through Nov. 4th and on Monday, November 7th until noon.

Saturday voting will also be available at the events plaza Oct. 29th and Nov. 5th.

Vanderburgh County Clerk Carla Hayden tells voters what to take to the polls:

"Bring a government-issued ID either from the state of Indiana or from the federal government. That would include things like a passport, an Indiana driver's license, an Indiana photo ID card, things of that nature. There is a complete list on the secretary of state's website."

Hayden says some folks like to take care of their civic duty before Election Day:

"Some people like early voting to get it out of the way so they don't forget about it. And if the line is long on Monday maybe they'll go back and try it again on Tuesday"

Early voting at five local public libraries is set for later this month.

In Vanderburgh County, voters are electing a new sheriff, prosecutor, and county commissioner.

Voters will also elect school board members and state legislators.
