The Pulaski County Election Board has set early voting hours, ahead of November’s General Election. The early voting period runs from October 10 through November 5. During that time, in-person absentee voting will take place Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and 1:30 to 4:00 p.m. EDT at the Pulaski County Justice Center in Winamac.
Those hours are slightly earlier than those that were offered for the May primary. That will reduce the need for the Clerk’s Office in the courthouse to be open extra hours to accommodate late afternoon voting.
Voters can also cast their ballots on two Saturdays, October 27 and November 3, from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. In-person absentee voting will also take place at the Francesville Fire Station on two Fridays, October 26 and November 2 from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and 1:30 to 4:00 p.m., and on Saturday, October 27 and Saturday, November 3, from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Early voting will end Monday, November 5 at noon.
Election board members agreed to the in-person absentee voting schedule when they met on Monday. However, Clerk Christi Hoffa said she still had to double check that the specified locations will be available.
She also told the other board members that her office is currently taking applications for mail-in ballots. They will be sent out to eligible voters starting September 22. The county’s travel board is also expected to visit three Pulaski County nursing homes, to give residents there a chance to vote.
Election Day voting will take place Tuesday, November 6 from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the county’s five vote centers.
