After months of debates, campaigns and get out the vote efforts, it is actually time to cast your vote. Polls are open in Indiana from 6 to 6 today. In Bartholomew County there are 18 vote centers spread throughout the county where you can cast your ballot.
Bartholomew County Clerk Jay Phelps says there have already been record setting numbers of voters both at the early voting polling machines and in mail-in ballots. As of last night, there had been 11,749 early votes cast. Phelps says this bests not only recent mid-term elections, but also doubles the early vote totals in the 2008 and 2012 presidential election years.
Make sure you bring a valid form of state ID when you head out to vote. The Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles says it will keep all of its offices open until 6 p.m. this evening. The BMV will renew or issue new drivers licenses or state ID cards to anyone who needs to update their ID in order to vote.
If you have any questions about voting today, you can call the Bartholomew County voter registration office at 812-379-1604.
We’ll have live election coverage starting at 6 p.m. tonight here on News Talk 1010 WCSI and 98.1 FM.
