With 29 days to go before the November 6 election, Monday was the first official day for absentee in-person voting in Indiana, however, many offices were closed for Columbus Day. All county courthouses should be open Tuesday for early voting.
Indiana early voting continues through Monday, November 5, the day before Election Day.
Dearborn County’s early voting has been relocated this year. It moves across the street from the Lawrenceburg Public Library to the first floor of the Dearborn County Courthouse, 215 W. High Street.
Early voting hours in Dearborn County are Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., except on Monday, November 5 until noon. Open hours will also be held on the two Saturdays before the election on October 27 and November 3 from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The early voting will be closed each day for lunch, 12:00 to 1:00 p.m., except on Saturdays.
People voting in Indiana are reminded that they need to show a photo ID or passport at their polling place.
Meanwhile, if you need to register to vote, Tuesday, October 9 is the last day to do so in Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky. Hoosiers can check their voter registration status, register to vote, and see a sample ballot online at www.IndianaVoters.com, a website ran by the Indiana Secretary of State’s Office.
Any voter registration forms sent by mail must be postmarked Tuesday. Registration can also be done in person at your local county clerk’s office or Bureau of Motor Vehicles branch.
