TERRE HAUTE —
Registered voters in Vigo County can begin early voting today.
Voters can cast a ballot on the first floor of the Vigo County Courthouse, at Third and Ohio Streets in Terre Haute, today through noon Nov. 5 for races in the Nov. 6 general election.
Under the Election Reform Act in Indiana, voters can cast an absentee vote 29 days before the general election.
The Vigo County Courthouse is open for voting from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and on four Saturdays before the election: Saturday, Oct. 20, Oct. 27 and Nov. 3; hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
