Officials in Daviess County say the Mail-In Ballot Drop-off Box at the former Burke's Outlet at Towne Square is being removed to stop voter confusion.

According to Daviess County Chief Deputy Clerk Richard House, some voters in the area have been filling out ballots and dropping them into the Mail-In Drop-off Box instead of scanning them in at the Voting Center.

House says that when the ballot box was checked, two marked ballots were discovered. The Board of Elections is planning to discuss the ballots at their Tuesday, Oct. 27 meeting.
