Leslie Hodges was the first in line at 5 a.m. outside the Stinesville Lion’s Club but said he usually doesn’t arrive until 10 or 11 a.m. Hodges said he tried to vote early but didn’t want to wait in the line that extended several blocks in downtown Bloomington.
At the St. John’s Catholic Church a line stretched across the parking lot before the sun rose, but was moving quickly, and the line was shortening by 7:30 a.m. However, a steady stream of voters continued to arrive. By 2 p.m. nearly 1,500 voters had cast their ballots at the church according to Monroe County Clerk Nicole Browne.
Browne said nearly 1500 had also voted by 2 p.m. at the Ellettsville Christian Church, and more than 1,500 had voted at the Southside Christian Church.
Twenty-eight polls are open in Monroe County for the 2020 election. Polls close at 6 p.m.
