A shortage of Democrats on the primary ballot has also led to a shortage of primary poll workers.
As of noon Friday, the Bartholomew County Election Board still had 10 openings for Democratic precinct election officers to serve on Tuesday.
"Many (Democrats) have said they'd be more willing to work the general election than the primary," said Julie Schuette, who serves as the Democrat Party's representative to the board.
Although partly officials are still working to fill the openings, the board adopted a measure Friday that would allow 16 and 17 year old students to fill any remaining open positions at precincts with traditionally low voter turnout on Tuesday.
