Early voting numbers down from four years ago

Indiana's primary is less than a week away, and state officials say about 78,000 people had voted early as of Monday.

But the numbers are way down from 2008. State figures show that early voting for Indiana's primary is down by nearly 40-percent from four years ago when Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton were crisscrossing the state and competing for the democratic presidential nod.

This year's highest-profile race is for the republican Senate nomination between Senator Richard Lugar and State Treasurer Richard Mourdock.

If you don't want to wait to vote, you can cast your ballot early.

In St. Joseph County, in-person absentee voting is available Wednesday through Friday from 8 to 4:30 at the County-City Building on West Jefferson in downtown South Bend or the County Services Building on Lincolnway West in Mishawaka.

You can also vote early Saturday from 8 to 4 at the same locations.

There will also be early voting available on Monday from 8 until noon.
