No Let Up in Early Voting

(La Porte County, IN) - Early voting in La Porte County is just as heavy as it was when it started.  That’s according to La Porte County Clerk Kathy Chroback, who said more walk-ins could vote early tomorrow since a lot of people don’t work Saturday and Election Day is Tuesday.


Chroback advised people to anticipate one hour long waits to vote because of long lines of people wanting to cast ballots prior to Tuesday.  So far, Chroback said about 7,500 mail-in ballots have been received by her office for tabulating on Election Night.   And, over 16,000 people have cast early ballots at the walk-in polls in La Porte, Michigan City, Coolspring Township and Wanatah, she said.


Early voting at the four walk-in sites will be open Saturday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.  The last day to vote early at the polls is Monday from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. 


Despite the extremely heavy early voting, Chroback said all precincts in La Porte County will be open for voting at the polls on Tuesday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.  Chroback said processing of the mail-in ballots won't likely be completed by Tuesday night, due the volume of mail-in ballots and the task of processing them by hand before they're actually tallied.
