Hancock Co. adds polling places for November election

When voters return to the polls in November in Hancock County, they will be treated to more polling sites.
 

The measure is designed to not create the same issues voters faced in the June Republican Primary, as voters stood in long lines well past the 6 p.m. deadline.


The Hancock County Election Board approved a total of eight polling places and election schedule.
Voters will be able to turn out to vote at the Hancock County Courthouse Annex, Hancock County Public Library Sugar Creek and Main Branch locations, Buck Creek Township Fire Department, NineStar Connect North, Nameless Creek Camp and Event Center, Fortville Community Center and Wilkinson Christian Church.


In addition, there are no contested county-wide races as the winners from the Republican primary will be running unopposed in November.


The deadline to register to vote is Oct. 5 and applications for voting by mail are due by Oct. 22. Early voting will begin Oct. 6 and continue until Nov. 2 in Hancock County.
