TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - More than 3,500 people voted early at the Tippecanoe County building last week.
Tippecanoe County Clerk Julie Roush says 3,575 people cast ballots in the first week of early voting, which is more than 800 voters a day on average.
As News 18 previously reported, Tuesday was the busiest ever first day of early voting at the county building, with more than 1,000 people turning out.
Roush says the large number of voters reported a small number of issues.
"I thought it went very, very well," she says. "I am so pleased because, in the past, we've had issues with our e-poll books checking people in, and we've not had that. Now, when we go to other places, we might run into the internet issues."
The county is gearing up to open more early voting locations this week, including Mackey Arena on Wednesday.
Roush says the election board is using a MiFi device to safely transfer the large amount of voting data from Purdue's campus.
"Wednesday at [11 a.m.], we're going to roll it out at Mackey, and I expect that's going to go smooth, too, though we do have to bring in a MiFi," she says. "We don't have access to their internet."
Voters can also cast their ballots Saturday at Faith West Community Center and St. Thomas Aquinas.
A full list of early voting locations and times is available on the Tippecanoe County Election Board website.
