Early voting for the 2022 Primary Election is underway in Marion County and there are more satellite locations than ever open ahead of Election Day.
Early voting locations are open in every township in Marion County. A total of nine satellite sites, including the Clerk's Office in the City-County Building, have hours every day.
Deputy Director Marion County Clerk's Office Russell Hollis said it was a conscious move to increase locations.
“The [Marion County Election] Board wanted to make voting more convenient for our voters and seeing that we did have lines in the 2020 presidential cycle,” Hollis said.
Marion County saw a record number of early voters during the pandemic.
The deadline for applications to vote-by-mail was last week. Hollis said Marion County voters can drop off their ballots at satellite sites.
“Since we do have more early voting locations, that’s more locations where a voter can hand deliver their absentee ballot,” Hollis said.
The Marion County Election Board also still needs poll workers for Election Day on Tuesday,
Election Day is Tuesday, May 3. There will be a total of 182 polling sites open.
