Early voting for next week’s Midterm Election in Marion County is outpacing early voting for the 2016 Presidential Election.
The Marion County Clerk’s office says nearly 27,000 people cast their votes in person as of Monday evening. At the same point in 2016, less than 18,000 votes were cast.
Most of the in person early votes have been cast since the county's new satellite voting sites opened last week. As of Monday, the sites averaged more than 5,100 voters each day.
Absentee by mail requests in Marion County are also up slightly compared to 2016, according to the clerk’s office.
