TELL CITY – The county courthouse will be open from 8 a.m. until noon this and next Saturday for early voting.

Formerly called absentee voting, people can use early voting for any reason and without explaining why. During the week, they can go to the commissioners room between 8 a.m. and noon and from 1 to 4 p.m.

Absentee voting can also be done by mail by filing an application through the clerk’s office. Applications can be requested or other information can be obtained by calling 547-3741 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. weekdays.

The deadline is Monday, April 28, for absentee-by-mail applications to be received in the clerk’s office in order to allow time for the ballots to be sent and returned prior to the election.
