You may call the Clerk’s Office, 812-438-2610, to check the status of your voter registration.
We are now accepting applications for mail ballots. Just an FYI-you must have a valid reason to request a ballot by mail for the 2020 General Election. In the Primary, the government allowed us to bypass that because of COVID. (This is box 4 on the application). Please call the clerk's office if you have any questions. Ballots will not be mailed out until mid September.
In the past few days, there have been 3 groups that have done a mass mailing of Absentee Applications to Indiana and Ohio County voters. Although, these are legitimate mailings and within their legal rights to do so, they are not from our local Election Office. Therefore, if you have already requested an Absentee Application to receive a Mail-In Ballot, you do NOT need to do anything else. They are being processed and your Ballot will be mailed out by September 18th. If you haven’t already submitted an Absentee Application to receive a Mail-In Ballot and meet the specific legal requirements to do so, then you may either, complete and submit an application received in the mail or call our office for one. Of course, we still have Early Voting and Election Day in-person voting!!! We truly apologize for any concern or confusion these extra mailings may have caused our voters! If you have ANY questions or concerns of this process or the status of your Application or Ballot, please don’t hesitate to contact (812)438-2610
