TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) -- Tippecanoe County Clerk Julie Roush put out a message encouraging anyone vulnerable amid spread of COVID-19 to vote by mail in the primary election.

She said those over sixty or anyone with an underlying condition can use the absentee ballot to stay safe while having their vote heard.

Those intending to vote by mail must request an absentee ballot by April 23rd.

Once the application is processed, they will be mailed an official ballot, which must be returned by election day.

The primary election is scheduled for May 5th. However, Governor Eric Holcomb says he is open to pushing it back, if circumstances warrant it.

You can find all you need to know on requesting an absentee ballot here. You can also call 765-423-9316 or email electionboard@tippecanoe.in.gov

The clerk's office is also looking at other ways to ensure health and safety during the election. For one, they are removing polling places from all nursing homes.
