Tuesday, March 29, 2016

The May 3 primary election in Indiana may still seem like a long time off, but the deadline for those wanting to participate is much closer.

Hoosiers have until Monday, April 4 to register to vote in the Republican or Democrat primary.

Putnam County residents have until 4 p.m. on Monday to register in person at the Voter Registration office on the second floor of the Putnam County Courthouse.

They also have until midnight on Monday to register online using the Indiana Voters app or by visiting

Registration is also available at any license branch, but must be done by Saturday, as the BMV is closed Monday.

Locally, the only county-wide contested race in the primary will be on the Republican side, with incumbent Putnam County Commissioner Don Walton facing a challenge from Mike Clark.

Other contested races on the Republican ballot include U.S. President, U.S. Senate, U.S. House District 4 and Indiana Senate District 24.

On the Democrat side, contested primary races will be U.S. President and U.S. House District 4.
