Starting today, there will be three more locations in Bartholomew County to cast your early ballot for next week’s primary election.
According to County Clerk Jay Phelps, the satellite early vote centers at Donner Center, the Main Source Bank branch on Jonathan Moore Pike and at Flintwood Wesleyan Church on 25th street will be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday. You can also vote early at the Bartholomew County Courthouse from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. this week.
Voting so far in this primary election has been brisk Phelps says. As of Friday, the number of people casting ballots was the second highest total in Bartholomew County history, second only to last year’s mayoral primary in Columbus. With just over a week left of early voting, the totals so far have been the second highest in the past 10 years.
