Early voting gets underway

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (ADAMS) – Voters in Indiana can start making their picks for president. Early voting across the state starts today. Voters have to cast their ballots in-person, likely at the local election headquarters or courthouse.

Only registered voters can vote. If you are not registered you are out of luck, Monday was the last day to sign up to vote.  Early voting in Indiana runs until the day before Election Day.

Here in Allen County, that will be at the Memorial Coliseum.

The Election Board moved their operations to the Coliseum to allow for COVID-19 restrictions and to accommodate what is expected to be a large turnout for this November’s election.
