FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) -- The Indiana state election board is deciding on a few tweaks to the current system.
The pandemic has pushed the Indiana election months behind schedule, and the upcoming primary will be much different than elections in the past.
"The biggest change is [the] volume of people voting by mail," says Thomas Hardin.
Hardin is on the Allen County Election Board and says he is expecting a record amount of absentee ballots this year, because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
It's also something the board has been pushing more citizens to take part in.
"Early in-person voting will only be for one week," says Hardin.
The change in in-person voting is one of several the Indiana State board made on Friday, but Hardin says he still has more questions.
"How many early voting locations are we going to have?" Hardin asks.
Voters have until May 21 to submit an absentee ballot application, and Hardin hopes many take that form of voting into consideration.
"People take pride in voting on election day and some still will, but those spots are going to change," he says.
