It appears many Elkhart County voters will avoid the polling places on Nov. 3 in favor of voting absentee. The deadline to register to vote is Monday.

GOSHEN — As a deadline neared for voters to register, local election and party officials reported a surge in absentee balloting and an increase in participation in the process.

Monday is the final day to register to vote in the Nov. 3 election.

I received and returned my absentee ballot a week ago. For those who may be concerned if it will get to the Clerk's office on time, if you go to and click on the Check Voting Status box, you can see when your ballot was sent to you and more importantly when they received it after you mailed it. It was a very smooth process. Don't wait, get yours in early so they don't get overwhelmed.

It was nice to be able to track the entire process. Well done by the Clerk's office!

That's cool it can be tracked . If the other states had the common sense that indiana did our country wouldn't be in such disarray
