Saturday marks the last opportunity for weekend early and absentee voting leading up to the May 3rd primary election.
Absentee voting has been ongoing in the state since early April. Voting hours continue to be offered during the weekdays at the Starke County Clerk’s office in Knox, but also at Winamac Branch of the Pulaski County Public Library.
Saturday hours in Pulaski County will take place today and April 30th from 9:30 am. until 3:30 p.m. with a half hour break at 1:00 p.m. for poll workers.
In Starke County, Saturday absentee voting will be offered between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. with a one hour break at Noon.
Providing for weekend time slots allows voters who are otherwise indisposed an opportunity to cast ballots during a time that may not interfere with their work schedules.
This is the first year Pulaski County has implemented a vote center model. The concept allows residents to cast their ballot at any of the available polling locations using technology.
Polls will be open from 6:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. local time on May 3rd.
