Vanderburgh County Election officials are already at work Wednesday morning, resuming the counting of ballots for the 2020 General Election.

The Vanderburgh County Election Board reported 15 minutes after polls closed Tuesday evening that over 40,000 ballots from in-person early voting were going to be tabulated Wednesday morning.

The votes come from the early voting at the Old National Events Plaza's early voting sessions.

According to the board, this was the first election that Vanderburgh County was using the new mandated voting equipment that used paper ballots.  The new equipment didn't allow the board to total the absentee and early voting on Tuesday as quickly as possible as it did with electronic ballots.

The count is set to begin at the Old National Events Plaza, before being moved over to the election office in the Civic Center.

Election officials believe the earliest a final, unofficial tally of Vanderburgh County votes could be as early as late Wednesday or by midday Thursday.

Just another day in paradise; afternoon highs again topped out in the mid to low 70s across the Tri-State under a mix of sun and clouds. If you have plans out and about this evening, make sure to grab a jacket before you head out - after seeing temperatures near 64° around dinnertime, the mercury will dip to 57° by 10 o'clock before falling all the way back down into the mid to upper 40s early Wednesday morning. Sure, tomorrow morning's lows of 47° will represent our mildest start to a day since this past Friday, but it's still going to make for a cool start to our midweek nonetheless. The combination of sunshine and southerly winds however, will help drive temperatures back into the low 70s by lunchtime - if you're planning on lunching outside Wednesday, make sure not to do so in the shade. Wind gusts near 15 mph at times during our lunch hour will make for a chilly brown bag lunch outdoors.
