(Indianapolis, Ind.) – Thousands of Hoosier voters have already turned out in record numbers to cast their votes ahead of the state’s May 3 primary election.

The Indiana Secretary of State’s Office reports about 31,000 people have cast ballots as of Monday since early absentee voting began on April 5.

Indiana residents have nearly doubled the number of early voters during the same period of the last presidential election cycle in 2012.

Early absentee voting continues through May 2 at noon.

Voter registration is closed for the May 3rd primary, but Indiana residents can still get registered for the November 8th general election at www.IndianaVotes.com.
