Stage set for city election
Early voting has wrapped up, ahead of Tuesday's city election in Evansville.
Early voting ended at noon Monday at the Election Office. It wrapped up last week at public libraries and other facilities.
A spokesman at the Election Office estimated about 550 people cast ballots at the office, and about 3500 early ballots had been cast overall.
The polls will be open from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Tuesday. Officials have predicted a voter turnout of about 30-percent.
License branches are extending hours for registered voters who need a driver’s license or state ID card.
A state-issued ID is required to cast a ballot in Indiana.
In Evansville, incumbent Republican Mayor Lloyd Winnecke is being challenged by Democratic State Representative Gail Riecken and independent candidate Steve Wosniak.
A number of city council seats are also contested, as is the city clerk’s office.
