The May 6th primary election has been postponed until Tuesday, June 2nd.   With the postponement of the Primary election, other deadlines will also be adjusted.   The deadline to return an absentee ballot request looks to be extended to May 21st.   The voter registration period should now continue until May 4th.  Early voting should begin on May 6th, but the exact schedule will not be set until next Wednesday.   In order to accommodate voter concerns, the requirement for having a permissible reason to request a ballot by mail has been waived for the 2020 Primary, only.

 

From the Knox County Clerk’s office:

With the postponement of this year’s primary election to June 2nd, other election related deadlines are also extended.    People will now have until May 4th to register to vote in the primary.   The easiest way to register, or check your registration, is by visiting www.indianavoters.com.

If you want to vote absentee by mail, the restrictions have been lifted for this primary only.  Simply call the Knox County Clerks office at 812 895-4927 to request an absentee ballot application.   Registered voters have until May 21st to return an absentee ballot application to the clerks office.

Please note that election related materials will still indicate the May 5th primary election date, but they will still be considered current and valid by the State of Indiana.

Also, as this current state of emergency remains in effect, the need may arise to relocate, or combine voting locations for Election Day.  Affected voters of such a move or combination of voting locations will be contacted via telephone utilizing the CodeRed system.
