Record Early Voting Slows Vanderburgh County Results


The wait continues for final election results in Vanderburgh County.

County Clerk Carla Hayden said 50 workers counted all the mail-in ballots on Election Day.

Votes cast in-person on Tuesday were also tabulated.

But about 40,000 ballots cast at early voting sites still needed to be removed from envelopes and counted – a process that was supposed to start Wednesday morning.

Hayden told WNIN News removing the ballots from envelopes is time-consuming…

"All those envelopes in the early voting do have to be opened by hand, but then they're separated from the envelope and run through a high-speed tabulator."

Hayden said the early voting set a record.
