72 Hour Delay in Tabulating All Votes

(LaPorte, IN) - We won’t know the final results of the Tuesday primary election in LaPorte County for 72 hours. According to LaPorte County Election Board officials, it’s going to take extra time to process all of the mail-in ballots cast because of COVID-19.


Election officials say more than 47 hundred ballots came in the mail or about eight times as many as four years ago. Apparently, some other counties in the state are experiencing similar challenges from the sharp rise in voting by mail.
