LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Early voting is in its third week of operation and the Tippecanoe Election Board reports a 20% increase in people voting early.
The increase means roughly 64-68% of folks have already voted. County Clerk Julie Roush says this beats their former record year of 2008, which was 48%.
The process for voting in person or ballot drop-offs has not changed due to additional Covid concerns.
Voters now have access to a web map application. The app provides voting locations, hours of operation, and average wait times.
Roush says they're doing everything they can to make each vote count.
"People call us, we try to let them know what the truth is. Just be careful. We don't want people being fearful. But they can call us and ask "Did you receive our ballot?" and we can tell them that. We do track that." said Julie Roush.
"A lot of things that they're hearing on social media. It's disinformation, a lot of it is out there," said Roush. "The secretary of state has asked us to try and help alleviate that. People call us, we do try to let them know what the truth is."
Roush encourages anyone who's healthy and able to come out and vote.
