The chance to register to vote has closed but the polls are now open. Oct 10 is the start of early voting.

220 people have already submitted early voting ballots in Tippecanoe County. Just four ballots shy of the first early voting day of 2016 - a presidential election year. Tippecanoe County Clerk Christa Coffey says that kind of turnout is highly unusual for midterms.

Coffey told us this year's number of registered voters is higher than past elections and she predicted that number would reflect at the polls.

On the last day to register to vote, the board received nearly 800 additional voting registration forms.

Coffey says Wednesday’s gloomy weather wasn’t stopping people from coming out to vote.

“For the first day it's been very busy.. so don't know what that means but it's pouring down rain and people are still coming to vote, said Coffey.

You can vote at the Tippecanoe County Courthouse Monday through Friday from 8 to 4:30 p.m. Tippecanoe is an open voting center county, which means you can cast your ballot at any voting site.
