A record number of people turned out to cast ballots during the first week of early voting for the citywide municipal election next month.
As of 3:20 p.m. on Friday, 151 people had voted at the Bartholomew County Courthouse, said Bartholomew County Clerk Jay Phelps. An additional 120 people had cast mail-in ballots.
The previous record for the most in-person votes cast during the first week of early voting was 84 in 2011. In 2015, 58 votes were cast during the first week of early voting.
“That’s a steady start,” Phelps said. “Normally, the first week is fairly quiet.”
