ELKHART — If you won't be in Elkhart County for the upcoming primary election, there's still time to vote absentee.

In-person absentee voting will be offered to residents until Monday, May 5.

Voters can cast their ballots between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Thursday, May 1, and Friday, May 2, at the County Administration Building, 117 N. Second St., Goshen, and the County Courts Building, 315 S. Second St., Elkhart.
