Large Turnout Expected As Early Voting Begins Monday

Early voting began throughout Indiana on Monday, and Monroe County is expecting a large turnout.

It was a fairly quiet day at the Monroe County’s early voting site in downtown Bloomington as early voting got underway throughout the state. But Monroe County Clerk Linda Robbins says this year could be a large turnout for voters.

“Anybody who’s registered to vote in Indiana and has the proper ID to vote early for any reason during the hours of 8 [a.m.] and 6 [p.m.], Monday through Friday,” she says. “We felt that it was really important for everybody to have chance to vote early.”

Robbins says this will be the first year Monroe County has five additional satellite locations where residents can vote. Those locations open next week.

Early voting continues until noon on May 7 and the primary election is May 8.
