Monday was the first day to fill out absentee ballots for the primary election.

Dozens of voters poured into the St. Joseph County building all morning and afternoon to cast their vote.

If you plan on voting absentee you must meet one of a few requirements. Those include being 60 years or older, if religious beliefs or health concerns don't allow you to visit the polls, or if you're in jail awaiting trial.

“Well if you're a registered voter and you're a tax payer and you're a citizen, an American citizen, the right to vote is very important. And I think that's something we always encourage, the last thing we want to do is discourage a vote," said St. Joseph County Clerk, Rita Glenn.

Monday was the deadline to for voters to register for the primary election.
