LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The upcoming election is less than a month away. Monday is the last day Tippecanoe County residents can register to vote. Residents can register online and by mail, however, you have to do it before 11:59 pm Monday night.
Nearly 120,000 people have registered to vote and County Clerk Julie Roush says these numbers are up from past elections.
William Heagrty is a Purdue student, originally from California. He says it made more sense to register here rather than mailing his ballot in.
"But since we all had to go home, I didn't really have time. Actually, my brother called and told me this was the last day to do it and that we could actually today. Just come down here and get registered." said William.
He also says he's going to vote in person rather than by mail.
"I'd rather get it sent in, do my due diligence, and make sure my vote counts," he said.
Early voting for the county begins tomorrow, October 6. For more information on where you can vote, click HERE.
