FLOYD COUNTY, IN (WAVE) – The nation is less than one month away from Election Day, but the Hoosier state already has a head start.

Early voting in Indiana began at 8:00 Wednesday morning.

Floyd County had a line of people waiting to vote. Voters can visit the clerk's office Monday through Friday, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. through October 31.

Satellite voting locations will be open between October 31 and November 4. On those days, voters can cast their ballots at the New Albany Library, Sojourn Church, 4-H Fairgrounds, American Legion Post 342, John Jones Automotive and Crossroad Church.

Floyd County is the only vote center location in southern Indiana, according to Floyd County Clerk Christy Eurton. This allows voters to choose their own precinct on Election Day. Sixty precincts will be set up.

"Go ahead, get your vote in, make sure it's cast and be done," Eurton said. "We do look for a high turnout and are asking voters to vote early and take advantage of it. It is out there, especially for the benefit of the voters."

Voter registration ended October 11. Election day is November 8.
