Deadline to request absentee ballot this Thursday night

ALLEN COUNTY, Ind. (WPTA) - The deadline to request an absentee ballot for the Indiana Primary Election is one day away.

Voters must request a ballot by 11:59 P.M. Thursday.

This week, the Allen County Election Board revealed more than 33,000 Allen County voters have requested mail-in ballots, and more than half have been returned.

Limited in-person voting begins May 26th at the Grand Wayne Center.

Despite recommending voting by mail, Beth Dlug, Allen County Election Board's Director of Elections thinks people seem to favor voting at the polls.

"I think for (the) health and safety of people this is a great option, but I like voting in person, and I like voting on machines, and I think a lot of our county likes that as well. And I'm hopeful that things will get back to normal," said Dlug.

If you would like to fill out an absentee ballot, you can stop by the Rousseau Center to fill one out in person or go online and complete one at
