Voters encouraged to vote by mail
Ginger J. Bradford, Ripley County Clerk, would like to encourage registered voters to vote by mail during these difficult and uncertain times we are experiencing. “It has been confirmed by the State that we will have in-person voting on June 2.” Bradford noted.
The original primary election was May 5; however, because of COVID-19, the date was changed to June 2.
“The safety and well-being of our voters is first and foremost,” noted Clerk Bradford. “That is why I encourage voters to vote early by mail. Simply call our office at 812-689-4783 and request an absentee application to be sent to you or go to our county website at www.ripleycounty.com to print out an application”.
Again, the State has confirmed that Indiana will have a primary election on June 2. In an effort to insure the safety and well-being of those who work as members of the precinct boards at the polling locations, the State has proclaimed that those working at the polling locations do not need to be a resident of the county in which they are working. They do, however, need to be registered to vote in the State of Indiana. These are paid positions.
Anyone interested in more information should contact the election office at 812-689-4783.
