TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — It was the first day of early voting in Indiana on Tuesday and about 360 people cast ballots in-person at five early voting centers.

Early voting will continue all week, except on Sunday, with the primary election coming up next Tuesday, June 2nd.

There are eight early voting centers with hours and addresses listed here. 

Election officials are also starting to process potential record numbers of absentee ballots.

County Clerk Julie Roush said there were around 11,000 mailed out to voters who requested one by the May 21st deadline.

About a third, more than 3,500 have been received and the votes have been cast.

However, the large number of absentee ballots not turned in yet does have some election officials concerned.

County Clerk Julie Roush said if you have an absentee ballot, it is best to drop it off at the county building in person.

She said it will most likely not get mailed in time before the June 2nd deadline.

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused delays for the USPS.

If you filed to get an absentee ballot but haven't received it yet, you can vote in person if you sign an affidavit.

Roush said she and her team have been working around the clock to make sure every vote counts.

"The mail told us 7 to 10 days and we have seen it where it's even longer than that," said Roush. "I am telling everybody if you are just now getting a ballot I would drop it off in the front of our office. In the front downstairs in the doors we have a ballot box."

All voting locations are maintaining proper social distancing and sanitizing equipment immediately after use.

The ballot box is open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Tippecanoe County Building in downtown Lafayette.

Votes can be cast between now and June 2nd.

If any absentee ballots are received later than that, they cannot legally be counted.
