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.

We're going to be looking out for another brutally hot afternoon throughout the Tri-State; afternoon highs should peak in the mid to high 90s with heat indices approaching and even surpassing 105°. As for the remainder of the evening, one can expect much of the same - temperatures will stick around the upper 80s through at least dinnertime before dipping to 80° or so by 10PM. By that time there is a good potential of some rainfall and storms picking up across the Tri-State. There is a chance we could see some severe weather develop with these storms. We'll start to see relief return Friday afternoon into Saturday.
