Bartholomew County sees brisk start to early voting

Early voting got underway yesterday with a hot start, quadrupling the first day numbers from four years ago.

Bartholomew County Clerk Jay Phelps said 160 people turned up at the courthouse voter registration office to cast ballots yesterday. Four years ago, there were only 40 voters on opening day.

The county has also already received 220 mail in ballots.

You can vote from 8 to 5 weekdays at the voter registration office in the Bartholomew County courthouse. That ends at noon on Nov. 5th, the day before the election.

Saturday hours will be added at the courthouse on Oct. 27th and Nov. 3rd from 8 to 3.
