Absentee Ballots Being Accepted For May 5 Primary


Absentee voting by mail applications is now being accepted by the Washington County Clerk’s office, according to Clerk Stephanie Rockey. 

“Just call our office at 812-883-5748 x1128 to request yours today,” she noted. 

On March 16th at 10:30a there will be a Public Test, which consists of testing and certifying the voting systems.

The public is encouraged to attend.

The test will take place at the Election & Voter Services office located at 801 S. Jackson Street, inside the Justice Center. 

If you need to register to vote or change your address, Rockey encourages voters to do this before the April 6 deadline.

“You can come by our office to complete the required documents or you can visit Indianavoters.com, if your issued Indiana Driver’s License is up-to-date, to register to vote,” said Rockey.

Early Voting begins April 7 and can be done in the Election & Voter Services Office.

Hours will be from 8 AM- 4 PM, Monday through Friday from April 7th to May 4th at Noon. They will not close for lunch.

Also, the office will be open on Saturdays, April 25th and May 2nd from 8 AM to 4 PM.

Polls will be open Tuesday, May 5th from 6 AM to 6 PM.

“As your Clerk, I firmly believe in exercising your right to vote,” Rockey said. “Our great state gives us many options to be able to register to vote and to cast your ballot. Even in today’s world, you are given too many options to be able to vote, so there is no reason why your right to vote couldn’t be exercised.”
