ELKHART — The final day of in-person absentee voting in Indiana brought long lines at polling stations in Elkhart County with early voting numbers surpassing any other election year, according to election officials.

As of 2 p.m. on Monday, a record 32,800 voters cast absentee ballots in person, with about 12,000 submitting an absentee by mail, and that number is expected to grow as final votes come in. That’s more than double the county’s previous record for absentee voting, which was about 15,000, Elkhart County Clerk Chris Anderson said.
