Indy 2018 Early Vote Totals Surpassing 2016

The Marion County Clerk says early and absentee voting in this year’s midterms is surpassing the 2016 Presidential election.

As of Friday, nearly 66,000 voters had voted early either in person or absentee.  That’s more than 10 percent of the county’s registered voters.

That number was less than 42,000 at this time in 2016.  And total voter turnout in the 2014 midterms was under 25 percent in the general election.

Clerk Myla Eldridge attributes the high turnout to a combination of compelling races and more early vote centers.
