LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- The Tippecanoe County Board of Elections is working to make early voting a little easier.
On Sunday, poll workers came out for a ballot drop-off '"drive-thru" at Edgelea Elementary School. The goal of hosting it at Edgelea was to provide a fairly central place in Lafayette for voters to easily travel and drop off their mail-in ballots.
The ballots are taken straight to the election's office to be sorted by precinct. Poll workers representing both political parties are overseeing the sorting process together. All four poll workers operating this location are high school students in Tippecanoe County.
They say they're happy to be a part of the election process, even without being eligible to vote this year.
"It definitely helps with social skills and meeting different people of different age groups is really nice personally," said Chris Uribe.
"Even when I can't personally have a say, it's still good for me personally to still be involved," said Leo Crampton.
They say it's been a great learning experience.
"Just working together to create the election, it just shows that the country's not as divided as what some people would say," said Ben Petrie.
"I really learned the ins and outs of not just the process of voting but, you know, how many different versions of security and different ways that we can have people vote and make sure that they're safe," said Ian Dufair.
Ballot counting will start on election day Nov. 3.
