TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — For those who cannot wait until Nov. 8 to cast their ballot, early voting is underway throughout Indiana.

Early voting kicked off across the state Wednesday morning. In most counties, residents can vote at the local clerk’s office.

In Tippecanoe County, you can cast your ballot early at the Board of Elections and Registration Office in the Tippecanoe County Office Building in downtown Lafayette. The county office location is the only one that will be open during the entire early voting process. Other locations can be found on the Tippecanoe County website.

But before you cast your ballot, Tippecanoe County Clerk Christa Coffey has a warning about making your choice too early.

“Be certain of who you vote for is who you want to vote for,” Coffey said. “There is no overwriting a ballot. Once you cast it, there is no provision for that. If you’re not sure who you want to vote for until election day, then you might want to wait.”

Tippecanoe County is also the first county in the state to use a new electronic kiosk system. The new kiosks are making the voting process more efficient and more accessible to voters with limited mobility.
