Apply for absentee ballots by May 21

If you've never voted absentee, this primary election day is a good time to start.

With "social distancing" still a fact of life, those concerned about contracting coronavirus can relax and cast their ballot from the safety of their own home.

It is easy to apply for a mailed ballot. You can call the Jennings County Election Office at 812-352-3080 and they will mail you the application or go online to indianavoters.com and request one.

The courthouse in Vernon will re-open to the public Monday, May 18, so you could request your application in person as well. However, to enter the courthouse you must wear a mask and have your temperature taken by the security officer.

The application takes about 30 seconds to fill out and sign.

Once the application is returned, the local absentee voting committee goes over the application to ensure you are a registered voter in Jennings. Once approved, your ballot is mailed out.

The last day to request an absentee ballot is May 21.

As of Tuesday, May 12, a total of 534 absentee ballots have been put in the mail. Three hundred have been returned.

Four years ago, there was a grand total of 471 absentee ballots cast in that springtime election, which was also a presidential primary.
