Vigo clerk reports voting going smoothly

TERRE HAUTE — About 10.5 percent of Vigo County voters had cast a ballot as of 1:30 p.m. today, said county Clerk David Crockett.

“We really have had no problems and it is really going pretty smooth so far,” Crockett said.

“This is my first election, so I can’t tell if this is good, but we do have about 10.5 percent of the voters casting a ballot” out of 76,586 total registered voters, he said.

Crockett read numbers as they popped up on a new electronic reporting system. “It is 8,084 voters … wait, now it is 8,097 voters,” he said as the total changed as votes were cast.

“I tell you, when this works, it works good,” he said of the new system.

Crockett said he started his work day at 5:15 a.m., arriving at the county courthouse, then going to the VFW to see how early voting was doing.

“Baesler’s Market has been very, very busy today, probably the busiest site today. Kroger North has also been busy,” Crockett said.

“I think people forgot the annex is open, as it did very well for absentee voting,” he said.
